ColorOS 12 features
ColorOS 12 is the latest custom skin from Oppo based on Android 12. And, It has got a lot to do with the design that you will love. Android 12 brings the Material You theming system that extracts colours from wallpaper and applies them across all the elements. So, simply changing a wallpaper results in a new colour on the elements.
With the latest ColorOS skin, you get new translucent 3D app icons, a more customizable Always-on Display, and the Omoji feature. The floating windows feature in the Oppo phone, which we know as Flexdrop, is renamed Flexible Windows in ColorOS 12. The new ColorOS 12 also brings a new AI system booster, Smart Sidebar 2.0, new privacy features, Color vision enhancement, and air gestures.
