OPPO Unveils ColorOS 7 on its all-new Reno 3 Pro


OPPO has unveiled its first flagship of 2020, the Reno 3 Pro, with the latest iteration of its Android 10-powered ColorOS 7 in India.

With the official version now available, Reno 3 Pro users will be able to enjoy a stable version of OPPO’s delightfully smooth and effortless OS 7, which packs in a series of smart tech solutions and fresh, localized features for OPPO’s 45 million-plus users in India.

Despite receiving high praise following its launch late last year, ColorOS 7 was only available as a trial version on 13 of OPPO’s devices in India including Reno, Reno 10X Zoom, Reno 2, Reno Z, F11, F11 Pro, F11 Pro Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition, and R17, R17 Pro, A9 as well as Find X, Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition and Find X SuperVOOC Edition.

ColorOS 7 is by far the best operating system for OPPO. Its lightweight UI and intuitive animations make Reno 3 Pro’s visual experience even better, especially the much-anticipated Dark Mode and Soloop video editor.

Now, it boasts of customized visual optimization for fans of short videos, called OSIE, which is the first software-based visual optimization for short video apps to enhance image quality and visual effects. The improved Hyper Boost accelerator software improves touch response by 16% and frame rate by 38%, making the Reno 3 Pro perfect for gaming.

Driven by a “lightweight” design approach, the stable version of ColorOS 7 comes equipped with an optimized interface, refreshed UI design, and added comfortable sound effects to let users focus more on their work and their daily lives.

Brings greater efficiency and convenience to work and daily life

With multi-user mode, users can now separate work life and personal life easily with different accounts, or also share their phone with others without having to worry about privacy breaches.

This is because the data of different accounts does not interfere with each other, and separate passwords and custom features can be created. OPPO is first smartphone brand to integrate DigiLocker services as part of its efforts to ensure safety and security of user data, and so it uses DocVault, an India-exclusive feature that allows users to store and access digital ID documents, with toughened security. With it, OPPO aims to bring the ease and convenience of paperless governance to its growing numbers of Indian users.

On top of this, ColorOS 7 brings an advanced three-finger screenshot that allows you to select a certain area with a long press, as well as OPPO Share with a cross-brand transfer, allowing smoother, effortless file-sharing. Other features include a customizable always-on clock display, a smarter sidebar and intuitive screen-off gestures.

Infinite Design is perfectly incorporated into the standard Android experience

ColorOS 7 features a lightweight UI skin that simplifies the user interface, helping users focus more on their content. It also comes with customizable icons, which look more refined and textured, while OPPO also redesigned the icons for more than 500 third-party apps to ensure even better visual consistency.

Ever keeping local users in mind, ColorOS 7 has a set of artistic wallpapers and a wallpaper of the iconic Hawa Mahal designed especially for Indian users, emphasizing ColorOS’ global vision to be a “window to the world”.

It comes equipped with Android 10’s well-received Dark Mode, which provides a superior reading experience even under bright light, and reduces battery drain by 38%. ColorOS 7 developers also paid extra attention to adapting the top 200 popular third-party apps to better-fit Dark Mode visually. What’s more, it boasts intuitive animations for charging, weather, deleting apps, etc. together with new sound interactions inspired by nature, to bring a more comfortable listening experience.

Supporting the Reno 3 Pro’s visual and entertainment experience

OSIE (OPPO Screen Image Engine) Ultra Clear Visual Effect is the industry’s first software-based visual optimization for short videos. OSIE will help third-party apps to enhance image quality and visual effect by increasing picture saturation and contrast while reducing noise. It boasts an outstanding audio performance with Dolby Atmos® and Hi-Res Audio, delivering an even more immersive and intense realism to your favourite movies, mobile games or music.

In addition, the video bokeh effect and the smart Soloop video editor allows every user to effortlessly create professional-looking videos on Reno 3 Pro with just a few simple taps, and then easily share them on social media.
