As one of the first OEMs with phones that run on Android 12, the new OS will first be rolled out on the Find X3 Pro in Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia

Oppo plans on expanding to more models covering more countries and regions in the coming months.

More details below from the press release.

Inclusivity Now a Central Theme

Having its presence across 68 countries and touching the lives of 440 million users around the world, inclusivity has been a central theme in the creation of ColorOS 12.

Building on OPPO’s Infinite Design concept – which is lightweight, clean, rich and highly customisable – the new OS provides a more inclusive experience.

It also comes packed with softer icons, animations and information framework that are friendly to different languages and cultures, as well as an adaptable framework that works with different phone formats.

Smoother, Seamless Experience Powering Greater Productivity

Giving users a smooth, seamless experience has been at the core of OPPO’s R&D and Innovation, and the new ColorOS 12 emphasises on both – comfort and endurance.

Thanks to the long-term code decoupling efforts, ColorOS 12 has made some achievements in addressing lags and stutters after prolonged usage, especially in anti-fragmentation and intelligent resource allocation, leading to a low 2.75% system aging rate in three years, an average of 30% lower memory occupation and 20% lower battery consumption.

Catering to users’ visual intuitiveness, the Quantum Animation Engine adopts more than 300 improved animations to achieve the animated effects that are life-like.

By imitating physical habits of resistance, inertia and rebound, the feature makes the overall experience smoother and more aligned to the cognition and habits of the human brain to bring an experience that is more realistic and intuitive.

Practical features such as PC Connect, 3-Finger Translate powered by Google Lens, FlexDrop and Phone Manager allow ColorOS 12 users to stay productive through multiple scenarios.

Prioritised Privacy: Cutting the gimmicks and focusing on the basics

OPPO has been listening to users’ feedback and prioritising privacy on ColorOS.

The ColorOS 12 comes packed with all the improved security and privacy features from Android 12 including Privacy Dashboards, Approximate Location Sharing and Microphone and Camera Indicators.

All of these features empower users to be the masters of their own privacy with clear, visualised menus and buttons. ColorOS 12 also keeps the well-received features developed by the OPPO team, such as the Private System, Private Safe and App Lock.

Aware that privacy to users is all about being transparent, OPPO has been improving the data compliance through storage and process.

With servers deployed in multiple locations across the world, OPPO guarantees that user data stay in the nearby servers, which is saved in a non-plain text format and is transmitted using a proprietary protocol.

Holding privacy certifications from authoritative organisations such as ePrivacy and ISO27001, OPPO deploys third-party supervisor in the data security field to ensure everyday process compliance.

An OS that’s open to the Android developers

OPPO values a healthy mutual exchange with its Android partners and contributes to building a culture of openness and technological exchange to enhance both platforms.

While ColorOS has incorporated many stock Android features, ColorOS has also inspired the customisable trend in Android 12, such as the Wallpaper-based Theming system in Material You, where users will find a similar self-developed feature in previous ColorOS editions.

Another example of this exchange is the App Cloner from ColorOS that is now featured in Android 12.

OPPO’s ColorOS aims to become a more Android developer friendly OS.

In addition to the free camera SDKs covering OPPO’s most advantageous camera capabilities – including Ultra Steady Video Shooting, HDR, Super Wide-Angle, OPPO has also further opened up its HyperBoost, Color Vision Enhancement to benefit Android app developers and enhance the Android ecosystem.
