ColorOS 11 Features

Every iteration of Oppo’s custom skin – ColorOS bring a chunk of changes to the user interface, and the new ColorOS 11 is no exception. Here’s the complete list.

Oppo brings a new feature that allows you to create your own wallpaper. Now let’s take a look at some other features.

Customizable AOD

Although, Oppo brings a slew of customization options with the ColorOS 11. But the Customizable Always-On Display (AOD), is one of the most anticipated ones. Yes, the new AOD feature lets you design your own pattern and design by moving your finger gently. Not only this but the vanilla text AOD also gets a slew of new gradient patterns and other options.

New Customizations to Launcher

Oppo has revamped the home screen layout customization options. Now you can pinch the display with your two fingers to customize the home screen. The newer option also allows you to change the grid size and apply a third-party icon pack. Not only this, but Oppo also separates the wallpaper section into the three separate sections – Static wallpapers, Live wallpapers, and Art+ Wallpapers.

Enhanced Dark-Mode

Dark Mode is one of the most anticipated features of Android 10. This feature is already available on the Oppo smartphones, thanks to the last year’s ColorOS 7 skin. Now, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer bring three different color options in the Dark Mode – Pitch Dark (aka Enhanced), Blue Dark (aka Medium), and Grey Dark (aka Gentle).

New Screenshot Pop-up

Every screenshot that you captured on your device will head over to the notification center, but this is not the thing in the Android 11. Google brings a new screenshot pop-up in Android 11, which shows a screenshot preview pop-up at the bottom left corner of the screen along with share and edit options. And there is a guesstimate that Oppo also brings something similar to this in ColorOS 11.

Notification History

As the name suggests, it allows you to check the notifications that you accidentally dismissed from the notification panel. This feature made its debut with the Android 11 and also coming to the Oppo smartphones with the ColorOS 11.

Improved App Permissions

This feature is already live on the Oppo Find X2 Pro running on ColorOS 7.2 based Android 11 beta, It simply means that the newer version of ColorOS also bring it to the other phones as well. This feature basically allows you to give access to the app’s permission for just one time, aside from always.

Other than that, ColorOS 11 has a Second Level lock screen (for security), builtin screen recorder, App pinning feature for share menu, conversation bubbles, along with a slew of changes to the notification panel. And the best thing, Oppo also bundle its next ColorOS Android skin with a bunch of aesthetic stock wallpapers, will share it on our website and app (PhoneWalls) once available to us.

So, these are the features available in the ColorOS 11 custom skin.
