OPPO A9X - ColorOS 11 gets Battery Guard feature
One of the most useful features added by OPPO to the ColorOS 11 firmware protects the handset's battery by pausing the night charging process at 80 percent and restarting in time for the user to wake up with a fully charged smartphone. Sony introduced the same feature as Qnovo Battery Care back in 2016.

A few days after Google released Android 11, OPPO unveiled the next generation of their custom firmware known as ColorOS. Labeled ColorOS 11, the software is obviously based on Android 11 and it comes with quite a few features of its own, such as a three-finger gesture for instant translation of the on-screen text (via Google Translate), a customizable dark mode, a new battery saving mode, as well as multiple customization options.

As recently revealed by Twitter leakster Ice universe, the latest update for ColorOS 11 comes with a feature named Battery Guard. His description is this: "It protects your battery by pausing charging when it hits 80% at night and restarts before you wake up, so that you start the day with 100% battery." and everything looks all right at first sight.

However, one of the replies to the aforementioned tweet claims that OPPO simply copied Sony's Qnovo Battery Care that was introduced in 2016. The reply, posted by Twitter user troystory, also claims that OPPO's next step could be a replication of Sony's HS Power Control, which is a feature that disables battery charging when the phone is connected to a charger and uses it as the power source instead of draining the battery.   

If you are a user of a ColorOS 11-loaded OPPO handset, please let us know what's your favorite feature and what do you think it is still missing. If not, you might get the update in the coming months, since the official update schedule goes all the way into the second quarter of 2021.
