Oppo has unveiled its next-gen ColorOS 11 software skin for smartphones at a virtual event today. It is a successor to ColorOS 7 but witnesses a huge number jump to align itself with the stock Android update cycle. The ColorOS 11 update brings along minor UI/ UX and dark theme upgrades, FlexDrop, Oppo Relax 2.0, and a lot more.
Alongside the feature set, Oppo also shared the update rollout scheduled for ColorOS 11 at the launch event. The company promises to roll out the new skin to more than 28 Oppo phones, starting with the Find X2 series today itself. Oppo was also one of the first Android phone makers to roll out the Android 11 preview update, alongside Google, Realme, Xiaomi, and others last week.
