Oppo has been working on its ColorOS custom Android for a while now, releasing multiple headsets loaded with it since 2013. While ColorOS offers many customizations, now they release another custom Android version, pushing things in a completely different direction - Project Spectrum aims to keep the user experience as close to stock Android as possible.

According to the official press release, Project Spectrum "continues OPPO’s commitment to listening closely to users’ needs and will allow OPPO to even better connect to consumers in Western markets." While this Android version has the speed and fast updates one would expect from a pure Google Android release, it also features PureImage 2.0+, MaxxAudio, and screen-off gestures - most popular attributes of ColorOS.

Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a are the first two handsets to receive the Project Spectrum option. This firmware is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and can be downloaded directly from the Oppo Community website. Oppo R5 and R5s will get Project Spectrum firmware soon as well but still based on Android 5.1. Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Project Spectrum will come in early 2016. For more details, please check the press release below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
