Performance and gaming improvements, privacy features

Taking about other improvements, Oppo has introduced a new “oMem” technology for improved app performance. Oppo claims that oMem results in a 25 percent improvement in app startup times, and a 40 percent improvement in RAM utilization. The company has also introduced “Osense” for improved touch response during gaming and less lagging. This results in about 19 percent improvement in frame rates on average and 15 percent improvement in touch response speed. ColorOS 7 also comes with new privacy-related features including App Lock for encrypting apps, and Privacy Safe to hide files.

Camera improvements, Camera X, and India-centric features

ColorOS 7 Camera improvements and changes

Moving to the camera section of ColorOS 7, users will get the new AI Beautification 2. The improved algorithm can better detect different scenes, environments, and lighting conditions. This will ensure that the system applies the beautification best suited for your skin tone. In addition, ColorOS 7 also comes with a new “Ultra Dark Mode” for improved night-time photography. This mode uses AI to detect noise levels to better reduce noise with “a special night scene algorithm”.

Oppo has also added a new “Soloop” video editor to provide a built-in video editor to ColorOS 7 users. The video editor will likely come with a number of built-in presets for fast editing. Beyond this, the company has also added Camera X, a new user interface developed in partnership with Google. Camera X allows third-party apps to directly use the stock camera app to all the built-in features. It means that apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Snapchat can directly capture better quality images with Camera X.

ColorOS 7 also comes with some India-centric features. The first of the lot is called DocVault for securing important documents. The company has teamed up with MEITY, a Government of India department to bring DigiLocker program to ColorOS 7. DocVault will allow users to store “authenticated documents” on their smartphones.

Other India-focused changes include a new Riding Mode for bicycle and bike riders in India. This mode reduces distraction while the user is riding a bike or bicycle. Oppo also added “Music Party” to daisy chain multiple Oppo smartphones to play one single song. Last but not least, the company has also added improvements to its built-in smart assistant.

In the end, the company also shared details about the ColorOS 7 rollout for its devices. Oppo is called this rollout the “ColorOS 7 Trial Version” plan.
