Oppo Reveals New ColorOS 12

Smartphone maker Oppo has revealed the latest version of its Android-based operating system, the ColorOS 12. Along with Oppo devices, this update will be coming to OnePlus devices as well since its merger with Oppo earlier this year. This update will be exclusive for China at the moment but should be available to the rest of the world very soon.

Oppo’s new ColorOS 12 looks quite similar to the last generation and the changes are not immediately obvious. The OS seems to be taking a little bit of inspiration from Google’s Material You making use of higher contrast colors and less whitespace. The UI has been made cleaner with lower information density per screen. Icons have been subtly redesigned to make more use of depth and texture. Oppo says it’s improved more than 300 animations throughout the UI while also making use of an AI engine to reduce lag and stuttering.

It is obvious that ColorOS 12 is highly based upon Android 12 and shows off features from Android 12 like adding a notification in the status bar when apps activate the camera or microphone. There is also one very interesting feature being added to this generation. Oppo has called it Omoji. Oppo’s Omoji is incredibly similar to Apple’s Memoji. It will be a user’s 3D avatar and can animate and export to any apps.

As for the availability, ColorOS 12 will first be available on a new “Photographer Edition” of Oppo’s Find X3 Pro. In October, there’ll be a limited public beta in China for the Find X3 series and the OnePlus 9 series and older generations of phones should see the upgrade by the end of the year.

Oppo says that overall about 110 models of devices and over 150 million users worldwide will take advantage of this new operating system.
