Oppo is updating its Android-based user interface, ColorOS, to version 2.0 with a whole host of visual changes and performance enhancements. Oppo has been known for offering their phones with the choice of running either stock Android or its own ColorOS, which is an extensive UI based off of Android. Version 1.0 wasn’t the most beautiful software to use, nor was it particularly intuitive. ColorOS 2.0 looks to improve on that.
ColorOS 2.0 is based off of Android 4.4 KitKat and features design changes like more minimalism, a Gaussian blur effect in different areas of the UI and a new set of animations to make the experience smoother and more natural. The gesture panel has also been improved to allow you to program in your own gestures to help speed things up. Some of the performance enhancements include a better task manager, smart memory cleaner and a Super Power Saving mode that allows you to get maximum battery life.
Oppo won’t be pushing ColorOS 2.0 via an OTA update, so you’ll need to download it here via Cloudfront. It should also be noted that ColorOS 2.0 is currently only available to owners of the Find 7 and the Find 7a.
