OPPO ColorOS 12 highlights

Inclusivity is the central theme of ColorOS 12 with OPPO making the new OS emphasize on both comfort and endurance.

OPPO claims that the new OS also addresses lags and stutters after prolonged usage, with Quantum Animation Engine used to further improve animations to achieve the animated effects that are lifelike.

Also added are into the OS are PC Connect, 3-Finger Translate powered by Google Lens, FlexDrop and Phone Manager, all apps which will further help users stay productive.

OPPO’s focus on stock Android 12 is also prevalent with the ColorOS 12.¬† Security privacy which include Privacy Dashboards, Approximate Location Sharing and Microphone and Camera Indicators are added to the OS to enhance already available privacy settings in the previous version.

ColorOS 12 availability

The ColorOS 12 will be available for public beta to its global users from this month (October 2021).

Users of the Find X3 Pro in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia will be among the first to enjoy the public beta before OPPO expands it to more models covering more countries and regions in the coming months.

Aside from releasing the public beta, OPPO will also guarantee three major Android updates for its flagship Find X Series devices, and two Android updates for the Reno and some of the A Series.

Low memory A Series models will also get a single Android update under OPPO’s new Android update policy.

This is definitely good news for OPPO owners as those owning the Find X Series can look to four years of regular security patch updates, and three years for the Reno/A Series.

I’ve personally never used an OPPO smartphone before so I can’t say how ‘stock’ like it is.¬† However, anything that’s almost close to stock Android is something I look forward to as it will be lighter and faster on the smartphone.
