Oppo ColorOS 13 announced: Here are the RollOut dates

Oppo has today announced ColorOS 13 based on Android 13. This will replace ColorOS 12 which has been present on the likes of the Oppo Reno 7 and the Oppo Find X5. ColorOS 13 incorporates a number of key Android 13 features while introducing a brand-new Aquamorphic Design for a concise and comfortable visual experience and user-friendly UI.

The new ColorOS design is inspired by the way water acts in nature giving that Aquamorphic finish to create a fluid, vibrant, and inclusive UI. With other upgrades like a Card-styled Layout, ColorOS 13 is designed to deliver a concise and comfortable visual experience.

It also delivers a more intuitive user experience through the integration of different Aquamorphic Effects into the system animations, UI, and Quantum Animation Engine with new Behavioral Prediction on users’ control intentions. This is complemented by OPPO’s human-centric inclusive design language, which introduces Empty State Illustrations, Adaptive Layouts for different screen sizes, and highly recognizable icons to enhance readability and overall ease of use. Also, a new series of Always-On Display images called “Homeland”, depict powerful scenes of wild animals in nature. The Always-On Display animations reveal the changes in the homes where animals live, based on daily temperature changes to call on you to pay attention to climate change and the earth we live on together.

ColorOS 13 marks the debut of the Dynamic Computing Engine, OPPO’s system-level technical solutions developed in-house to deliver a more smooth and stable system and all-around improvements to the fundamental user experience. The Engine brings two major improvements, including increased battery life and the ability to keep more apps open in the background. OPPO’s Dynamic Computing Engine improves the scheduling of hardware resources to extend battery life by achieving a better balance between high performance and low power consumption. It also helps to keep more apps alive in the background, making it possible to switch between multiple apps without losing the status within an app or experiencing lag while switching.

Aside from being a great way to express your personality, the Smart Always-On Display in ColorOS 13 can now display information related to music and food delivery apps, giving users quicker access to information and more convenient control over music playback and other functions. OPPO has partnered with world-leading software and service providers including Bitmoji and Spotify, to provide a wide range of convenient and personalized experiences through the Smart Always-On Display.

Always-On Display refresh rate can now be reduced to just 1 hertz to save 30% power consumption for some scenarios. Other smart home screen management features like Large Folders, Shelf, and Home Screen Widget also help users to easily and quickly access the information they need in the way that works best for them.

OPPO has developed the industry’s first Meeting Assistant for smartphones designed specifically for online meetings and integrated into ColorOS 13. The Meeting Assistant can automatically prioritize wireless data packages to provide a more stable connection during online meetings.

Multi-screen Connect now supports seamless connectivity between smartphone and OPPO Pad Air, and between smartphone and PC, boosting productivity and convenience through File Transfer that supports more file formats without hardware limitations. Users connecting their smartphone to a PC via Multi-screen Connect will also benefit from being able to display multiple mobile apps simultaneously on the PC screen.

ColorOS 13 integrates the underlying privacy protection features of Android 13. The system will automatically delete the clipboard history after a short period of time, preventing sensitive information leaks caused by malware. In addition, with the Nearby Wi-Fi feature, users can enjoy Wi-Fi without revealing specific location information. Auto Pixelate can recognize and blur out the profile photos and names in chat screenshots automatically with one tap, and the new Private Safe is encrypted with the widely-used Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to provide high levels of security.

For the global rollout of ColorOS 13, OPPO plans to update nearly 35 smartphone models within the year, covering more than 60 countries and regions, and as many as 160 million users. This rollout will begin with the Find X5 Pro and Find X5 today with the official release of ColorOS 13.
