Oppo joined the Android 10 bandwagon late as compared to other OEMs. However, once it joined it stuck with the update roadmap and updated a bunch of its eligible phones with the Android 10 ColorOS 7 OS.

AI Pre-App Launch
ColorOS 7.2 relies more on the phone’s AI features. And with the help of the AI Pre-app launch feature users will be able to easily and more quickly launch the most used apps on their phones. Notably, this is done by pre-loading the most used apps in the background before the user accesses them.
The AI learns from your daily habits and usage and grabs all the information. Then as per your usage statistics, the phone will automatically keep the apps running in the background giving your faster access to the apps that you use the most. Oppo touts that this technology results in app launch time, 23.63% faster. Besides, the more you use this feature on your phone, the better the AI gets and the app launch time could even go faster as per more data available.
OEMs are now creating a dedicated place where the users could test out the features that are yet to come on the phones. Notably, Oppo has included the Oppo Lab, where users can try out the experimenting features.
There are currently two features that are available under the Oppo Lab, i.e. Lab Ringtone that enables users to create their own ringtones and second is the Decision Spinner that enables users to make decisions with the spin of a wheel.
Quick Return Bubble
Oppo aims at making multitasking much simpler with the Quick Return Bubble feature on the ColorOS 7.2. Especially when users are gaming on their phone and also chatting or doing other stuff on other apps. The Quick Return Bubble provides a seamless switching experience back to your game no matter which app you are using.
Notably, the running game will be opened in the background and will be minimized in the form of a bubble. And whenever you want to switch over to the game, tap the bubble and you will zoom into the game. Moreover, if you are waiting to respawn, the bubble will show a timer to tell the time left for your character to respawn.
Artist Wallpaper Project
As many as 30 new artistic wallpaper has been added with the ColorOS 7.2 on the Oppo Reno 4 Pro smartphone. Under this project, Oppo has collaborated with popular artists across the globe to bring brilliant high definition wallpapers.

Another convenient feature that this new Oppo ColorOS 7.2 based on Android 10 brings is the Super Power Saving Mode. This helps to improve the battery performance of your phone when it drops down to low battery levels. Once activated, Super Saving Mode will adjust the CPU frequency to use as minimum power and adjust the backlight of the phone accordingly.
Moreover, you can also customize the power saving ability of individual app as well. A pop-up message will indicate you to activate the Super Power Saving Mode if your battery level reaches 5-10%. Besides, only 6 apps will be allowed to be operated once this feature is activated on the phone.
Pull Down Gestures
In the process of making the home screen accessibility more convenient for one-hand usage, Oppo has introduced a new feature called Pull Down Gestures.
You need to swipe upward on the left or right edge of the Home screen to activate the Pull Down Gesture on your phone. Once activated all the icons will gather down at the bottom half of the screen to open any app more easily.
