OPPO outs global version of Android 12-based ColorOS 12


OPPO’s Android 12-based ColorOS 12 are now rolling out to its users. It closely sticks to an Android 12 experience with an all-new inclusive UI, smoother performance, and additional features to boost OPPO smartphones.

The new ColorOS 12 comes with several new enhancements including a light UI with softer icons, animations and information framework that are friendly to different languages and cultures, and an adaptable framework with different phone formats.


Its Quantum Animation Engine brings in more than 300 improved animations. Smoother animations are made possible by imitating physical habits of resistance, inertia, and rebound.

Performance has also been addressed on the update. ColorOS 12 reduces lag and stutters after prolonged usage, especially in anti-fragmentation and intelligent resource allocation. This leads to a low 2.75% system aging rate in 3 years, an average of 30% lower memory occupation, and 20% lower battery consumption.

Additional features include PC Connect, 3-Finger Translate powered by Google Lens, FlexDrop, and Phone Manager.

Privacy has also been addressed on the ColorOS 12. The OS has the improved security and privacy features from Android 12 including Privacy Dashboards, Approximate Location Sharing and Microphone and Camera Indicators. OPPO has added a couple more options such as Private System, Private Safe, App Lock, and others.

OPPO’s ColorOS 12 are now rolling out in Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia on the Find X3 Pro. More models and regions will receive the update in the coming months.
