- Oppoâs ColorOS is one of the best custom Android skins.
- Oppo is bringing new changes and improvements to it with Android 14.
- It is scheduled to release in August.
With the release of the Android 14 developer beta update, OPPO also started rolling out the beta of their very own skin of Android, the ColorOS 14. The 14th software revision brings some significant changes and a user interface overhaul. The ColorOS 14 is OPPO’s in-house skin on top of Android 14, with heavy customizations, feature implementations, and performance improvements developed for Oppo and Chinese OnePlus devices.
The First Android 14-based Beta update was released on Oppo’s Find N2 Flip in May. And, since then, the beta for other Oppo and OnePlus devices is expected to arrive anytime soon. Let’s see what Oppo’s new ColourOS 14 offers, when we can expect it and what features it brings.
ColorOS 14 Update Release Date
Seeing OPPO’s track record of their ColorOS release, the last version of ColorOS, the ColorOS 13, was released in August. And release in August is a thing for OPPO regarding the ColorOS release. Usually, OPPO unveils their ColorOS updates alongside their flagship smartphone release, and we can expect the same this year. The stable builds of ColorOS 14 based on Android 14 might be available in August.
ColorOS 14 Top Features
Like Android 14, the ColorOS 14 update will also focus on security, accessibility, and customizations. Here are some key features we can expect with ColorOS 14 stable update.
In ColorOS 13, Oppo already overhauled the control centre and is tipped to get more tweaks in ColorOS 14. The update is said to have more curbed edges and will be more accessible. The company might bring changes in the quick settings shortcuts where it will be more inclined towards the bottom for better one-hand usage.
The Icons on the ColorOS were recently introduced with an Aquamorphic design with Monet theming. OPPO is expanding its customization options like icon shapes, size, the look of icons, and more with the ColourOS 14 update. The leaks suggest that you can set the grid size of 2X4 icons for the first time in ColorOS smartphones.
Google has followed iOS and has added tons of new customizations in the Lock Screen, like new clocks, fonts, and icons alongside new wallpapers that can adapt any design user want, from emoji to icons. ColorOS has always had such features in lock screen customizations and is adding more where you can see more clocks and fonts.
The Oppo is known for its innovative charging animations, especially in the devices with SuperVOOC charging support. They have constantly refreshed the charging animations with something new and better every time. This time it seems no different for ColorOS 14 as well. It is sure to have a new and improved charging animation.
Widgets have had a lot of hype since the theory was introduced in iOS, but they have yet to be new news to an Android user as the devices have been around since the first version of Android. But, following the hype, they have so many improvements in every OS in the market, and ColourOS 14 is sure to be on the Widget hype bandwagon. Following the trend, the ColorOS 14 will bring new and improved system widgets with curated functionalities that will benefit users.
