Oppo ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 beta to be available on 28 new phones from 14 September 2020

Today, OPPO announces that it is the first OEMs to bring the latest Android 11 update to its users worldwide.Equipped with robust features that improve both work and play, ColorOS 11 is the ideal accompaniment to any lifestyle.

Three-Finger Translate powered by Google Lens, is the first feature OPPO has created in partnership with Google and is able to capture and translate text through a simple screenshot taken with a three-finger gesture.

Flexdrop[, another new feature, provides a simple and intuitive solution for multi-tasking. Users can watch videos and send messages at the same time, a feature that is particularly useful for gamers and video-lovers. Users can even switch between and control different smart home devices through a new Device Control menu, without having to download new apps.

To maximise the phone’s available battery, the new Super Power Saving Mode lets users select six apps to run in low-battery situations. Meanwhile, Battery Guard prevents damage from prolonged charging at unstable power voltages by learning user habits. It intelligently pauses charging once it reaches 80% at night, before resuming to achieve a full charge by the time users wake up.

Unparalleled smoothness to “Make Life Flow”

While high frame rates are a positive industry advancement, a common side effect is that phones often experience lags and stutters as a result. To combat this, ColorOS 11 has introduced UI First 2.0, which combines OPPO’s proprietary lag-reducing engine with Quantum Animation. This boosts RAM utilisation by 45%, improving the response rate by 32% and the frame rate by 17%.

AI App Preloading on the other hand learns its user behavior to preload the most-used apps, reducing loading time. SuperTouch also intelligently identifies user scenarios and optimises the phone’s touch response speed accordingly, improving system fluency.

A heightened focus on user security and privacy

ColorOS 11 incorporates stock Android 11’s newly added privacy options while creating a series of additional privacy protection and data security features. Private System[3] creates a separate system where a second version of apps and data runs independent of the original, and is accessible only via a separate fingerprint scan or password

A new shortcut to App Lock enables users to lock apps through password, fingerprint, or facial verification. The permissions system has also been enhanced, with temporary permissions that reset camera, microphone, and location access when the app is closed. Meanwhile, auto-reset permissions return app permission settings to default if they haven’t been used in a long time. To prevent malicious apps from accessing other apps’ data, scoped storage restricts apps’ access to phone data, requesting user permission in order to do so.

The fastest and widest rollout in ColorOS history

The current beta launch of ColorOS 11 invites tech-savvy users to explore the new features and offer feedback, with an official version to follow in the coming weeks. ColorOS 11 is set to be rolled out across OPPO’s various offerings, starting with the Find X2 Series and Reno3 Series. The complete rollout will cover 28-plus phone models, including the Find, Reno, F, K, and A series.
