Oppo has launched the ColorOS 12 operating system public beta for its smartphones globally. The new OS is based on Android 12 and will first come to the Find X3 Pro devices in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. It will roll out in the Indian market from November 2021 starting with the Reno series – Reno6 Pro 5G, Reno6 Pro Diwali Edition, and Reno6 5G.
According to the company, the new operating system packs softer icons, animations and an information framework that is friendly to different languages and cultures. It is incorporated with many stock Android features like the wallpaper-based theming system in Material You. The company claims code decoupling efforts in ColorOS have led to a low 2.75% system ageing rate in 3 years, an average of 30% lower memory occupation and 20% lower battery consumption.
The OS also gets practical features such as 3-finger translation powered by Google Lens and the phone manager.
In terms of privacy, the update comes packed with security and privacy features from Android 12, including Privacy Dashboards, Approximate Location Sharing and Microphone and Camera Indicators. It also receives features developed within the Oppo team such as Private System, Private Safe, App Lock and others.
The new OS supports 67 languages including 13 major Indian languages. The company aims to bring ColorOS 12 to over 110 models with 150 million users.
Apart from this, the company has also guaranteed three major Android updates for its flagship Find X Series devices and two Android updates for the Reno/F and some of the A Series models.
“Oppo ColorOS 12 is based on Android 12 and together we bring the fastest and widest-reaching OS update in the history of OPPO. We thrive towards consumer requirements, and thus, ColorOS 12 has several features related to security and privacy showcasing our commitment to data protection and confidentiality,” said Manoj Kumar, senior principal engineer, ColorOS India R&D.
