OPPO has also released the timeline for the rollout of ColorOS 14 beta for all its eligible devices. The company has listed 26 devices in the beta program of ColorOS 14, including both flagship and mid-range smartphones.
ColorOS 14: Everything That You Should Know
ColorOS 14 is based on a new design language inspired by water. OPPO calls it Aquamorphic Design and has implemented a gradient-based colour scheme in the UI. Devices with ColorOS 14 can change the colour of the device’s elements based on the time of the day.
OPPO has introduced interactive bubbles, similar to Apple’s Dynamic Island. It can integrate with several applications and display a small bubble related to the ongoing app activity. OPPO says that these bubbles are designed in a way to reduce disruptions due to fullscreen and popup notifications.
ColorOS 14 also brings in a new AOD theme called GO Green. It will display five different nature-related animations on the phone’s lock screen along with the daily step count of the user. It will also display the reduced carbon emissions contributed by the user by choosing to walk.
OPPO has also emphasized AI with its latest software version. ColorOS 14 now comes with Smart Touch which will allow users to pick elements like text, images, and other multimedia from third-party apps, and save them in the File Dock.
The File Dock will let users share that content across any other app with drag-and-drop gestures. OPPO also says that the content of the File Dock can also be synced across other OPPO devices signed in with the same account.
Another new addition is Smart Image Matting which allows users to crop multiple subjects like people and animals from any static image on the screen. These cutouts can be shared across apps, or be used as a wallpaper on the device.
OPPO says that the Trinity Engine is one of the biggest enhancements in performance. It consists of three elements: ROM Vitalization, RAM Vitalization, and CPU Vitalization.
OPPO says that the virtualization process can help to save up to 20GB of storage by compressing certain files. It can also optimize RAM usage using OPPO’s proprietary technologies. The Trinity Engine can keep apps in the memory for over 72 hours. The CPU vitalization schedules the power delivery to the processor, to ensure the best balance between battery consumption and performance.
As ColorOS 14 is based on Android 14, it implements all the privacy features from the latest Android version. Devices will ask for permission from the user to access any additional images and other data when a particular app requires it. OPPO has also worked on the permission management system to make it more privacy-focused.
OPPO has also continued its partnership with Snapchat. ColorOS 14 has introduced a new lock screen shortcut for Snapchat. It also comes with a new widget that shows direct updates from the Snapchat app, along with status and location updates from close friends.
ColorOS 14 Rollout Schedule
ColorOS 14 will first arrive on the OPPO Find N2 Flip in select regions, as a direct stable update. Other OPPO devices will receive the beta version of ColorOS 14. Here’s the list of devices and the rollout schedule of ColorOS 14 beta.
It is possible that OPPO may release ColorOS 14 to some other devices. OPPO’s sister companies OnePlus and Realme also share the same ColorOS DNA in their devices. Hence, some features of ColorOS 14 are expected to arrive on OnePlus and Realme devices too.
OPPO has not announced the timeline for the rollout of the stable version rollout of ColorOS 14.
