What’s new? : Features and specifications


The redesigned ColorOS 12 is one of the most significant modifications. Oppo currently refers to its design as a ‘Borderless Design,’ as it does not utilize borders to separate icons. Instead of using paper to differentiate icons, an acrylic sheet has been used, and the icons are dubbed ‘Acrylic Icons.’

Smooth Animations

The ‘Quantum Animation Engine 3.0’ is included in ColorOS 12. Simply swswipingcross the display is significantly more smooth and quick with this engine. The ‘AI Self Smooth Engine 2.0’ cuts power usage by 20% while increasing battery capacity by 12%.

Connecting a PC

ColorOS 12 includes a system-level cross-screen networking option. It may be used in the ColorOS 12 system after installing an OPPO proprietary installer file on the pc and downloading and operating it on a Windows 10 computer. To enable cross-screen interaction, mobile phones are used. It not only mirrors the phone’s screen on the pc screen, but it also allows for data copying and pasting, as well as file dragging and interaction. The way of functioning is similar to plugging a phone into a computer and converting it into a built-in computer device, thus bridging the gap. Control and communication are much more effective because of physical boundaries between devices.


Users can utilize the Free Floating Window functionality to adjust and relocate windows anywhere else on the screen by tapping and dragging them. ColorOS 12 introduces Smart Sidebar 2.0, which is yet another big enhancement. With the touch of a button, you may accomplish a variety of critical functions such as price comparison, listening to the news, and so on. The sidebar is even better now that it has a read-aloud capability and a real-time translation alternative for multiple languages.

Booster for the AI System

Location Sharing 

It’s the same as every other Android 12 feature that is featured in Color OS 12 and aims to help you protect your privacy even more. If an app requests your location permission again, you don’t want to give them your exact location. Alternatively, you might give a rough location. This is useful for weather-related apps, for example, if you don’t need them to track your exact location.

OmojEmoji’sji, 3D animated emojis, are also part of the new operating system. Users can make their cucustomizedmoji avatars using Oppo’s face capture system.
