The smartphone giant Oppo released its latest ColorOS 11 based on Google’s Android 11 launch on Monday. With the global rollout of the operating system, some standard Android features as well as various in-brand customization options will appear.

“ColorOS 11’s focus on customizing the user interface is based on the customer’s desire for a more personal and unique phone experience,” said Lynn Ni, head of the OPPO ColorOS design project.
The executive added that the company relied heavily on user feedback to develop the UI customization features to give users a personalized UI that offers a wide range of features.
Google and Oppo worked together for the first time to launch a new feature – Google Lens three-finger translation. Users can get translated versions of any text simply by taking a screenshot of the required text with a three-finger gesture.
The latest operating system also offers the ability to respond to texts using Flexdrop while watching a video or playing a game. The new super power saving mode allows users with Oppo smartphones to choose up to six apps to run in low battery situations.
The update also includes a new app lock shortcut that allows users to lock apps using a password, fingerprint, or facial verification. The permissions system has also been updated with the option for temporary permissions, which reset access to the microphone, camera and location when the app is closed. In addition, the auto-reset permissions will reset the app permission settings to their default settings if they have not been used for a long time.
The wide adoption made Oppo one of the first companies to release the Android 11 update. Currently it has been released in beta with an official version that will follow in the coming weeks. ColorOS 11 is released in batches, according to the company. After the takeover by the Find X2 and Reno3 series, at least 28 models will be supported in the entire rollout, including the F, K and A.
