As scheduled, Oppo has taken the wraps off its latest-gen ColorOS 11 skin today. A major change that ColorOS 11 brings on top of Android 11 OS is the enhanced Always-On Display feature that lets users create their own designs for the ambient display. The latest ColorOS update also has an upgraded Dark Mode as well as a series of performance enhancements. ColorOS 11 beta version based on Android 11 is initially launching for the Oppo Find X2, Find X2 Pro, Find X2 Pro Lamborghini Edition. Following the initial release for the Find X2 series, the ColorOS 11 beta update will be available for the Oppo Reno 3 4G, Reno 3 Pro, and F17 Pro starting September 30. The company will, however, bring the beta update to the Reno 4 Pro 5G in October, while it will reach the Reno 4 5G and Reno 4 Pro 4G in November. The beta update will also come for the Oppo Reno 4 4G, F11, F11 Pro, A9, A92, A72, and A52 in December.
ColorOS 11 features
ColorOS 11 allows users to create their own fonts, icons, and ringtones. It also offers a personalized experience through themes and the ability to change the Always-On Display design with various styles and patterns. Further, there is Oppo Relax 2.0 that gives a way to create a white noise mix by using different sounds of local markets, oceans crashing, and bird chirping. Oppo is also working with Google to develop a three-finger translate feature, which is powered by Google Lens. This lets you translate the content in your preferred language simply by taking a screenshot using a three-finger gesture. Dark Mode on ColorOS 11 has also been upgraded with three distinct color schemes and multiple levels of contrast. The new skin also has a FlexDrop feature that lets you resize the app into a small floating window. ColorOS 11 also comes preloaded with a new Super Power Mode that is said to provide a standby time of 12 hours or talk time of one hour with just five percent battery. For performance improvements, ColorOS 11 comes with UI First 2.0 that combines Oppo's proprietary lag-reducing engine with Quantum Animation. “This helps boost RAM utilization by 45 percent, improving the response rate by 32 percent and the frame rate by 17 percent” according to Oppo. The custom skin also provides an AI App Preloading feature that is claimed to use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to learn user behaviour and preload the most-used apps. ColorOS 11 also comes with a SuperTouch feature that optimizes the touch response speed.
