After Google announced the Android 12 operating system, smartphone manufacturers are now launching their custom mobile OS based on the latest Android 12 version. Following the same trend, Oppo has announced ColorOS 12. It is the latest version of the company’s mobile OS based on Android 12.

Borderless and Colorful Design

One of the most major changes in ColorOS 12 is the tweak in its design. Oppo calls its design to be a ‘Borderless Design’ now as it no longer uses borders for separating icons. Instead, an acrylic sheet is used to separate icons so the icons are also renamed to ‘Acrylic Icons’.

As the name suggests, the use of colors has increased in the ColorOS 12. There are different colors used to distinguish between different kinds of information. ColorOS 12 is now much more compatible with other smart devices too.

Smoother Animations

ColorOS 12 has ‘Quantum Animation Engine 3.0’. This engine makes swiping across the screen much more comfortable and responsive. The ‘AI Self Smooth Engine 2.0’ reduces power consumption by 20% and increases battery life by 12%.
