OPPO teases the launch of ColorOS 12 as rumors of a Kodak-branded next-gen flagship emerge
OPPO has released a teaser for ColorOS 12 through its official Weibo channel. This new post is not hugely informative about the OEM's new Android skin at present, although it does hint strongly at a reveal to take place within September 2021. Nevertheless, it is currently said to integrate a number of new features, which may even extend to its own take on its sister brand Realme's new PC Connect feature.
The prolific leaker Digital Chat Station has posted alleged screenshots of the new software's UI to Weibo. They may reveal the impending update's icon style, as well as the design of widgets, one for first-party wearables such as the Enco X TWS earbuds included.
The same tipster now also claims to reveal additional plans at OPPO for the future of its devices. They apparently include a OnePlus x Hasselblad-esque collaboration, albeit with Kodak rather than the Swedish brand. This partnership had been thought to grace the Realme GT Master Edition instead at one point; however, it may be destined for a device of a different name instead.
Digital Chat Station has hinted that the 2 brands will work on a mobile camera system with dual Sony IMX766 main sensors, as well as the same 13MP 2x telephoto lens and 3MP "microscope" camera from the Find X3 Pro flagship. According to an image also recently posted by the tipster, this device may also be designed to recall the hallmark 35 RF camera in its looks.
