The company also said that its newly launched mobile operating system is based on “Make Life Flow” concept and that it maintains the stock Android features while also providing the rich UI customization sought by Oppo users.
As far as the features are concerned, ColorOS 11 brings all of Android 11's features onto Oppo smartphones. It also comes with features such as dark mode customisations and new battery saver mode among others.
So here are all the top features of ColorOS 11 that you should know about:
