OPPO and Qualcomm have collaborated in order to unveil 2 new gaming-centric features at the China Digital Entertainment Expo and Conference. They are Game Color Plus and Dual Wi-Fi. The former uses the Snapdragon's platform's latest technology to enhance aspects of content quality in gaming. The latter allows a phone to use 2 sources of Wi-Fi at once.

OPPO and Qualcomm have introduced Game Color Plus and Dual Wi-Fi at the China Digital Entertainment Expo and Conference, which is currently in progress in Shanghai. The 2 new software enhancements are mainly intended to benefit mobile gamers.

As the name suggests, Game Color Plus has mainly been developed to improve saturation during gameplay. It may also be capable of enhancing contrast and accuracy in the display of this content. It has been refined using the Snapdragon technology such as that which runs on up-to-date OPPO phones. Game Color Plus also leverages Qualcomm's low-power HVX+HCP algorithms.

Dual Wi-Fi, on the other hand, uses the Dual Band Simultaneous/Dual-Band Dual-Concurrent (DBS/DBCC) chip found in devices such as the Reno 10X Zoom. It allows a phone to essentially use 2 Wi-Fi hotspots simultaneously. These hotspots can use different SSIDs, although this is not technically necessary. These IDs can, for example, be emitted from the same router in order to boost the bandwidth used by an individual mobile device.

This novel feature is handled by adaptations such as policy-based routing, link aggregation and link diversion, on the software side. As OPPO has been the OEM to partner with Qualcomm on this new project, the 2 new features will roll out on compatible devices running Color OS 6 to start off with. However, this should be followed by their application to different phones from other manufacturers in the future.
