OPPO unveils ColorOS 7 based on Android 10
OPPO has finally launched its much-awaited Android 10 fork in the form of ColorOS 7. The software offers a completely redesigned UI that incorporates new design elements. It is expected to reduce visual fatigue by employing a more comfortable color system. As the build is based on Android 10, it will also include a system-wide dark theme.
OPPO claims that ColorOS 7 will reduce app startup time by up to 40% and increase the system resource efficiency by 30%. Additionally, devices will get better RAM optimization. The software also includes some gaming-centric improvements such as GPU Turbo Mode, which overclocks your hardware to ensure a smoother gameplay experience.
The camera app gets some new features such as Portrait Mode 2.0, an enhanced night mode and a super-steady mode for video capture. The gallery app has also been tweaked to enable faster capture, editing, and sharing. It also comes with a one-tap video editing feature called “Soloop Recording.” ColorOS 7 will allow users to customize icons on their home screens and choose from a new selection of Art+ wallpapers.
The software rollout is expected to begin on November 25 starting with the OPPO Reno, Reno Inspiration Edition, Reno 10x Zoom, Reno Barcelona Custom Edition, Reno Ace, and Reno Ace Gundam Edition followed by the OPPO Reno 2, which will receive the update in December. Other eligible OPPO devices will receive the software starting Q1 2020. Realme devices will receive a slightly modified version of ColorOS 7 starting February 2020.
