Oppo is offering users a trial version of Android 10-based ColorOS
The first to receive the update will be the Oppo Reno with the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom and the Reno 2 following close behind
ColorOS is essentially Android 10 but with features that are specially customized for Oppo users
If you’ve been using an Oppo Reno smartphone for the past few weeks then you’ll be glad to know that Oppo is offering users a trial version of Android 10-based ColorOS on the smartphone. The first to receive the update will be the Oppo Reno with the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom and the Reno 2 following close behind. The trial will only be available for users from India, Malaysia and Thailand. The update will be limited to about a thousand people and you’ll be able to apply for the service starting on October 25.
To break it down even further, ColorOS is essentially Android 10 but with features that are specially customized for Oppo users. The update will add new features such as visual interaction, gesture navigation and improved privacy settings as well. The new OS will also feature a brand-new Dark Mode. The feature will come with automatic brightness control system, enabling Dark Mode to adapt to bright outdoor glare, low light and more, providing effective operation regardless of place or time.
The update also comes with new full-screen gestures for better navigation. It will give users easier and more convenient full-screen gesturing, making the best of smartphone border design. You will be able to swipe from the left-hand side of the screen to go back to the previous page. A quick swipe up from the bottom of the phone screen will take you back to the home screen. To view all open apps, users can swipe up from the bottom of the screen then pause about a third the way up the screen.
Another addition to the trial update is the Android 10 Digital Wellbeing feature. This will allow users to precisely monitor their smartphone usage and stay on top of how frequently each app is used. They can see how they spend each day and set daily limits for each app using site timers, and when the timer runs out, the app or site will be paused for the rest of the day. The Wind Down feature also reminds users to switch off at night with by setting a bedtime schedule.
And last but not least, privacy controls on this new update have been overhauled to give users a better browsing and more secure experience. For instance, when an app wants to access your location, you can enable it to access this all the time, when the app is open, or completely block access. If an app has access to location data all the time, then Android will remind users with a one-time notification. These access controls, which can be easily changed within settings, also save much-needed battery power.
In case you want to try out these features, you can head over to Settings> Software Updates> Settings Icon in the upper right corner and then click on Trial Version. There are just a few thousand public trial upgrades that will be available so if you really want to download the update, then you’ll have to get it first on October 25.
