Oppo has Put Android Pie-Based ColorOS 6 on Open Trial

  • The company is testing this new operating software for Oppo F9 smartphones
  • Oppo will subsequently roll out the same OS for its flagship Find X as well

Oppo has announced the roll out of the ColorOS 6 Open trial version for its F9 smartphone. The new ColorOS 6 Open Trial Version, as per the company, offers users the latest Android Pie mobile operating system experience, and comes replete with all-new customized features.

Company’s official statement read, “All models upgraded to ColorOS 6 integrate the practical new features introduced by Android Pie, including improved interactions, enhanced AI capabilities and optimization of the underlying interface. An all-new navigation gesture in Android Pie offers a cutting-edge experience in user interactions. Android Pie is powered by Google’s AI capabilities with Google Assistant, ARcore, Google Lens and other intelligent scenario-based services. OPPO’s integration of the latest software update provides a smoother, smarter and more user-friendly experience for customers.”

New design concept

ColorOS 6, as per Oppo, adopts a borderless design concept. Oppo combines light, subtle colors and a simplistic white background to create a lightweight and elegant user interface, which differentiates ColorOS 6 from Google’s native interface. This white background design has gradients that blend with built-in art wallpapers.

Oppo’s official statement read, “ColorOS 6 shifts the navigation bar to the top of the screen and streamlines the information hierarchy by replacing tapping with swiping to improve efficiency and smoothness of interactions. ColorOS 6 also features animations that simulate natural friction to create a more intuitive virtual experience for operations, for example, when swiping upward or across the screen.”

Two new camera modes

Oppo’s new OS introduces two new features: Dazzle Color Mode and a new portrait style photography. Dazzle Color Modem, as per Oppo, leverages mapping algorithms to restore vivid colors, reverse light and improve shading in pictures. It also expands the range of scenarios that smartphone photography can handle.

The company said that ColorOS 6 employs AI to scan through the most-viewed photos on social networks globally to customize five portrait filters. Algorithm-based optimization for facial recognition and skin tone adjustment helps to intelligently meet user demand for beautification capabilities.

Oppo has also upgraded its Game Boost option to its latest version in Color OS 6. The company said that v2.0 of game boost option delivers up to 38 per cent increase in performance.

Oppo’s statement read, “The new upgrade first hits Oppo’s popular F9 smartphone and will subsequently be rolled out for the flagship Find X and a range of available Oppo devices in the near future to deliver an enhanced software experience for all ColorOS users.”
