If you’re the owner of an Oppo Find 7 or Find 7a and can’t wait to get a taste of Android 5.0 Lollipop, your wait is almost over. Oppo has just released a preview to show what’s to come in the next version of ColorOS. Shown off in the screenshots and video below, version 2.1.0i will be released as a beta version sometime soon.
As you can see below, version 2.1.0i brings a number of user interface changes to Oppo’s software overlay. A more simple and flat icon design is present, as well as a much more responsive interface compared to previous builds of the software. This new build won’t feature as many Material Design-centric tweaks that we’re used to seeing in other builds of Lollipop, but we’re sure most users will welcome the changes present in this update.

A few unnecessary features have also been removed to ensure RAM usage is optimized to its fullest. To check out the full list of features that will be removed, you can head to this page. Notable features to be removed include the live weather functionality in the launcher, some icons and widgets in the lock screen, as well as the dial pad tone in the phone app.
Overall, this new version should be much faster and more responsive than previous builds. If you’re interested in getting some more information on version 2.1.0i, check out the attached video and head to the source link below.
