OPPO has announced its ColorOS 11 based on Google’s latest Android 11. The updated OS comes with more UI customization options ranging from Wallpapers to Dark Mode, which offers a complete personalized experience in the system UI and UX. You can freely customize your Home screen layout, widgets, transitions, wallpapers, and icon styles. Just pinch the Home screen with 2 fingers to bring up the personalization settings. There are personalized color schemes that let you choose your favorite color from 10 colors in 5 schemes. Your selected theme color can be applied to controls and icons to ensure a
consistent visual experience.
Further, the Always-On Display is more customizable now. A simple, black panel is provided as your canvas. Tapping or dragging your finger on this panel will generate your own style AOD patterns. The dark mode has evolved too. It offers three color schemes with different level of contrast. OPPO Relax now comes with Sounx Mix to let you choose from a selection of sounds (including natural, urban, ASMR, and everyday sounds).
ColorOS 11 comes with new features as well. It is incorporated with Three Finger Translate powered by Google Lens. It allows you to translate text in apps, webpages, and
