Oppo this weak unveiled the latest iteration of Color OS, which is a heavily customised Android skin that they use in their phones. The new Color OS 6 is specially designed for full-screen smartphones and uses light and elegant design that would appeal to users’ eyes.
Color OS 6 offers a flat design with white colour in almost all of its stock apps. Though, you can change it according to your preferences from the Theme Store. Oppo has also added an app drawer which users can access by swiping up from the home screen.
Color OS 6 also has AI integrated within to perform several tasks. An example of this is a new tech called “AI Cold Storage” present in the OS. This according to Oppo uses AI to freeze background apps in order to lower the power consumption. This sounds like an interesting feature as instead of killing the background apps, it just freezes them and you can continue to use the app from where you left when you switch to it again.
There are several other new features and improvements. Like, parents can take advantage of “Remote Guard” which monitors their children’s phone usage. Game Mode has been updated to version 2, which offers few notable upgrades like the Touch Boost and Frame Boost. Touch Boost increases the touch response time by up to 22 per cent. Frame Boost helps in achieving up to 40 per cent improvement in frame rates while playing games. Additional features like Dolby sound support, voice changer for in-game voice chat, etc. are also included in the new game mode
Night Mode is now available in the camera app, which helps in capturing more light in images shot in low light. The overall performance of the phone is also increased with App Boost and System Boost.
