Chinese tech giant OPPO is all set to introduce the latest version of its ColorOS operating system. The company has released a minute-long teaser video for ColorOS 7 on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo, which has revealed that the new OS will be introduced at an event in China on November 20th. The latest ColorOS version will succeed ColorOS 6.0, which was launched in November last year. Unfortunately, there’s no word regarding the features of ColorOS 7. The previous version of the OS arrived with an updated user interface, Game Boost 2.0, updated camera app, and gaming and security-centric features. Therefore, we can expect some enhanced features in the new ColorOS.
According to the reports, the ColorOS 7 will be based on Android 10. It is said to feature a system-wide dark mode and a focus mode similar to OnePlus’ Zen Mode. The OS is tipped to offer an optimised Control Centre or quick settings menu, better file management, a minimalistic user interface, and a lot more. ColorOS 7 is also said to offer a close-to-stock Android experience. The OPPO 10x Zoom edition smartphone is expected to be one of the first phones from the brand to receive the ColorOS 7 update. We will have more details in a couple of weeks, so watch this space for more updates.
In related news, OPPO is planning to launch a new Reno series smartphone called the Reno S in India at some point in December. The phone is said to arrive with support for a whopping 65W Super VOOC 2.0 fast charging support, which will make it the first in the country to offer this tech. The Reno S will be the sixth Reno series smartphone from the company. The device could come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 855+, and feature a 64MP primary camera at the back. Lastly, the handset is expected to cost around Rs 40,000 for the base variant.
