OPPO officially launched its newest operating system, ColorOS 13, to global users. In addition to bringing a variety of new features, ColorOS 13 is one of the first operating systems based on Android 13. Interestingly, the Reno8 Series will certainly get an update this year.
In a press release received by Alomaki.com , OPPO explained that ColorOS 13 combines a number of key features of Android 13, while introducing a new aquamorphic design for a compact and comfortable visual experience and a user-friendly interface.
The aquamorphic design itself features a new theme palette inspired by the changing color of light between sunrise and sunset on the sea surface. OPPO has also added new fonts to improve the readability of text in multiple languages.
Another improvement that users will find is the Card-Styled Layout. According to OPPO, with this layout ColorOS 13 will provide a concise and comfortable visual experience. It will also be more intuitive to use thanks to the integration of different aquamorphic effects into system animation, UI, and the quantum animation engine with new behavior prediction to give the user complete control.
There’s also a new Always-On Display called Homeland, with animations that reveal changes in the homes where animals live based on daily temperature changes. This animation also reminds users to pay attention to climate change and the earth.
The Smart Always-On Display in ColorOS 13 can now display information related to music and delivery apps. Specifically for this feature, OPPO has partnered with the world’s leading software and service providers including Bitmoji and Spotify. The refresh rate of the Always-On Display is also reduced to just 1 Hz, to save 30 percent of power consumption.
For those who frequently conduct online meetings, OPPO has developed the industry’s first meeting assistant for smartphones called Meeting Assistant. This feature automatically prioritizes wireless data plans to provide a more stable connection during online meetings. Meeting Assistant also simplifies notifications (notifications) to minimize distractions, while allowing users to add OPPO Notes shortcuts that help take meeting minutes in pop-up windows.
Another cool feature is Multi-screen Connect. As the name implies, this feature supports seamless connectivity between smartphones and OPPO Pad Air, and between smartphones and PCs. While the Nearby Wi-Fi feature allows users to enjoy Wi-Fi without revealing specific location information.
Concerning privacy and security, the Auto Pixelate feature can recognize and blur profile photos and names in chat screenshots automatically with one tap. There is also the latest Private Safe which is encrypted with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
