ColorOS 12 new features:

  • Overhaul of the user interface based on Infinite Design with new icons, animations, avatars. The design of the icons has been uniform throughout the UI, the colors are more muted
  • Optimized position of the UI elements: there are more spaces so that the user cannot get confused
  • Increased text contrast, added color shades
  • Improved FlexDrop function for multitasking: you can drag an app with a gesture, as well as switch between full screen view and those in a small and mini window
  • Smart Sidebar 2.0 with six innovative tools, including playing music from the web directly within the Music Player app or comparing prices on e-commerce sites
  • Connection function between different screens for PC-smartphone connectivity. So you control the smartphone itself from the laptop, for example, and can transfer files quickly (requires Windows 10)
  • Car Screen Projection functionality and support for an increasing number of apps that can be viewed directly from the display of your car
  • Omoji: emoji avatars that can be created through the Face Capture algorithm
  • Smoother animations
  • Performance improvements
  • 300 new animations thanks to the Quantum Animation Engine
