ColorOS 7 details

The ColorOS 7 is a custom built Android 10-based operating system. Successor to ColorOS 6, the ColorOS 7 brings several new updates and localised features, especially designed for Indian users. It features a DocVault with the government-approved DigiLocker integration. The localisation of both ColorOS and ColorOS 7 is based on research on trends and patterns in consumer usage habits.

Oppo's new ColorOS 7 is faster and increases application response time by 30 per cent with multiple apps running in the background, according to the company.

The new customised OS has adopted a lightweight visual approach that simplifies key elements, helping users focus more on the content. Besides full icon customisation, there's a dark mode that provides superior reading experience in all-day conditions, thus, helping users concentrate while improving phone’s power efficiency.
