“We strive to make ColorOS broader yet more localised, creating a truly global system that users in different markets can experience and enjoy. This means we will continue to expand our localisation efforts to ensure that ColorOS is highly adapted to local user needs,” Manoj Kumar, Senior Principal Engineer, Oppo ColorOS, said in a statement.

The new customised OS has adopted a lightweight visual approach that simplifies it helping users focus more on the content.

Besides full icon customisation, there’s a dark mode that provides superior reading experience in all-day conditions, thus, helping users concentrate more and reducing battery consumption.
