Oppo ColorOS 12 launch date has been confirmed, as the Chinese consumer electronics company prepares for an imminent launch event. Much to the delight of its huge fanbase, Oppo recently announced a new ColorOS software update. Dubbed as the ColorOS 12, the latest update is set to release later this month. In September this year, the company released a poster that confirmed the ColorOS 12 moniker. Aside from that, the poster hinted at some major design changes in the app design.
Furthermore, the ColorOS 12 has been subject to multiple leaks and speculations. The company’s AI Assistant Breeno accidentally revealed the exact date of the launch of ColorOS 12 last month. The image was shared on Weibo by a tipster, suggesting that the latest UI will be released at 3 PM (GMT + 8) on September 13. This date was later changed to another response stating, “coming soon, please stay tuned.” However, a few days ago, the company confirmed that the ColorOS 12 will roll out this month.
Oppo ColorOS 12 Launch Date
According to a report from ITHome, Oppo has announced that the ColorOS 12 will be unveiled during a launch event on September 16 in China. The event will start at 18:00 local time. The much-awaited ColorOS 11 successor, codenamed “Da Vinci” will be based on the Android 12 operating system. It will boast an array of new features, as well as functionalities. Taking to its official Weibo account, Oppo noted that Leonardo da Vinci has been the most proficient human being in science, technology, and art.
Noted tipster Digital Chat Station shared a promotional poster of the upcoming UI on social media. The poster features a smartwatch, tablet, and smartphone, suggesting that the new ColorOS version will support all three devices. Furthermore, this could also be an indication that Oppo is working on its first-ever tablet. On the downside, the ColorOS 12 might not be available for these devices soon. A report from MySmartPrice explains that Oppo will wait until Google releases a stable Android 12 OS update.
If rumors making the rounds online are anything to go by, the new Oppo software will come with a Cross-Screen Interconnection feature. This is quite similar to the Multi-Screen Collaboration from Huawei. Aside from running on Oppo devices, the new ColorOS 12 could run on a slew of OnePlus branded handsets in China. It is worth noting here that global OnePlus phones will continue running OxygenOS.
Oppo is reportedly planning to take some characteristics from Chinese Android skins such as HydrogenOS, and Smartisan OS. In addition to that, the company is likely to adopt key features from the likes of Flyme from Meizu and MIUI from Xiaomi. Considering that Realme is Oppo’s sub-brand, Realme devices are also likely to receive the ColorOS 12. To recall, Oppo made some minor changes in the ColorOS to make Reame UI.
