At the Oppo conference held in China today, the Chinese smartphone maker announced ColorOS 7 based on Android 10; the new operating system which in the following months will reach dozens of brand devices.
ColorOS 7 is promoted as the most complete operating system ever released by Oppo and with a new very simple and clean design. The brand spokesman says that this more minimal design serves to decrease tiredness on the eyes. While the icons will be customizable in shape and there will be "Art +" backgrounds for greater quality even on the home of the device.
But the graphics are not everything, so Oppo has also created new sound effects. The Chinese brand has in fact collaborated with the well-known Danish sound company Episound to systematically design the sound of simple human language and simulate the sound of the real world. In other words, very simple and at the same time relaxing sounds have been created. This group of sound effects will be called Oppo Relax.
As far as performance is concerned, ColorOS 7 brings background optimizations to improve performance. In particular, Oppo says that we will have better RAM management and a reduction in application startup times of around 40%; for an efficiency on the resources used of about 30%. If you are more interested in the gaming side, ColorOS 7 should also improve the fluidity of the game and the response speed of the touchscreen.
Moving on to the photographic sector, in the new OS we will find the Portrait 2.0 mode to take even more captivating portraits, an improved night mode and a super-steady mode to record more stabilized videos on the software side. There are also changes in the gallery application for faster viewing, editing and sharing.
On ColorOS 7 we will then find a new updated three-finger screen capture and a Dark mode on the entire operating system with the particularity that we can still activate the mode for eye protection at the same time. So a winning combination for those who love to use the smartphone in the dark.
Finally, from the point of view of the AI assistant, in the new OS we have Breeno in an updated version. In addition to having the functionality of the typical virtual assistants, Breeno can also help us sleep with Breeno Sleep which activates the Dark Mode and deactivates the notifications.
