The world-leading smartphone brand OPPO held the global launch for its all-new ColorOS 11 via an online press conference, making history as one of the first OEMs to bring the latest Android 11 update to global users.
ColorOS 11 maintains the beloved stock Android features with its “Make Life Flow” concept, while also delivering the rich UI customization sought by OPPO users.Here’s all you need to know about the new Operating System:
New level of UI customisation
ColorOS 11 provides a level of unprecedented UI customisation to help users unleash their imagination and personalise their experience. Users can create their own Always-On Display, theme, wallpaper, fonts, icons, and ringtones.
“ColorOS 11’s focus on UI customisation is rooted in the customer’s desire for a more personalised and unique phone experience,” says Lynn Ni, OPPO ColorOS Design Project Lead.
Greater efficiency than ever before
ColorOS 11 comes with the new Google Lens powered Three-Finger Translate, the first feature co-created by both OPPO and Google. It captures and translates text by simply taking a screenshot with a three-finger gesture.
Another new feature, Flexdrop provides a simple and intuitive solution for multi-tasking. Users can watch video and text at the same time, which is particularly useful for gamers and video-lovers.
The new Super Power Saving Mode lets users select 6 apps to run in low-battery situations and Battery Guard intelligently pauses charging once it reaches 80% at night, before resuming to achieve a full charge by the time users wake up.
Unparalleled smoothness to “Make Life Flow”
ColorOS 11 introduced UI First 2.0, which combines OPPO’s proprietary lag-reducing engine with Quantum Animation. This boosts RAM utilisation by 45%, improving the response rate by 32% and the frame rate by 17%.
Meanwhile, AI App Preloading learns user behaviour to preload the most-used apps, reducing loading time. SuperTouch also intelligently identifies user scenarios and optimises the touch response speed accordingly, improving system fluency.
A heightened focus on user security and privacy
Private System creates a separate system where a second version of apps and data runs independent of the original, and is accessible only via a separate fingerprint scan or password
A new shortcut to App Lock enables users to lock apps through password, fingerprint, or facial verification. The permissions system has also been enhanced, with temporary permissions that reset camera, microphone, and location access when the app is closed. Meanwhile, auto-reset permissions return app permission settings to default if they haven’t been used in a long time.
The fastest and widest rollout in ColorOS history
The current beta launch of ColorOS 11 invites tech-savvy users to explore the new features and offer feedback, with an official version to follow in the coming weeks.
ColorOS 11 will be released in a batch-by-batch approach, starting with the Find X2 Series and Reno3 Series. The complete rollout will cover 28-plus phone models, including the Find, Reno, F, K, and A series.
