Oppo will officially unveil the latest ColorOS 11 today that is based on Android 11. The custom OS will be available to a few select Oppo phones initially.
The company has already announced the availability of the Android 11 updates on the Oppo Find X2 series.
OPPOs Android 11-based ColorOS Beta is available for the OPPO Find X2 (Global & China), OPPO Find X2 Pro (Global & China), OPPO Ace2 (China), the OPPO Reno3 4G (Global), and OPPO Reno3 Pro 4G (Global). The company recently recruited beta testers and is holding a virtual event next week to unveil the new version of ColorOS, which will run on Android 11.
“The naming convention of ColorOS 11 (the previous iteration was OS 7) and rollout proximity demonstrate that OPPO is working closer than ever with Google to develop its software and align itself more with the stock Android,” Oppo said in a statement.
ColorOS 11 is expected to bring all the key features from Android 11. The new version will include conversation notifications, chat bubbles, and major improvements to the keyboard.
The latest software will also feature new ways to manage connected devices and media through the phone. Users will also have granular access to applications, this will help users customize what level of access they want to give to an application. The feature will also include background location preferences for more control over sensitive permissions.
Oppo’s ColorOS 11 will also allow users to pin up to four apps to the default share menu. There is a new screenshot pop-up for easier navigation. The update will also have a notification history shortcut.
Other key features include a dedicated conversations section in the notification shade which will make it easier for users to view, engage, and prioritize chats from different applications.
