The next version of ColorOS is arriving soon. OPPO has confirmed that ColorOS 12 based on Android 12 will launch sometime later this month.

OPPO shared the general timeline for the rollout of the ColorOS 11 successor via its Weibo account. The announcement fell short of revealing the exact date for the launch, but its release coincides with the expected rollout of Android 12 to some of the best Android phones.

That only makes sense seeing as the Chinese phone maker was one of the first third-party OEMs to offer the Android 12 beta build earlier this year. Specifically, OPPO released the Android 12 beta on the Find X3 Pro, which looks set to pick up all the new features that Android 12 has to offer in the next few weeks.

Today, OPPO was said to announce the features of the Android 12-based ColorOS 12 user interface. It was also among the expectations to share a timeline about the smartphones that will receive ColorOS 12. However, the company has made an announcement that will leave the enthusiasm of users in the crop. The latest information is that “it will be available in mid-September” about the new interface.

ColorOS 12 is expected to be released on September 13. OPPO has not personally confirmed this information. However, Breeno, the voice assistant he developed for his smartphones, asked a user, “When will ColorOS 12 be released?” In his answer to the question, he pointed to September 13. OPPO released the wallpapers of the new interface about one week ago.

How to download ColorOS 12 wallpapers?

  If you like the ColorOS 12 wallpapers released by OPPO, you can open it in full screen by clicking on it once. Then you need to hold down the photo and press the “Download file” or “Save as” button. Then you can enter the wallpaper settings of your phone and set the downloaded image according to the home screen or lock screen.

According to the agreement, the new user interface will also be used on OnePlus phones. Born under the umbrella of OPPO, OnePlus will thus reunite with the company. Some features of the OnePlus interface HydrogenOS will also be integrated into ColorOS 12. It is not yet clear what exactly these features will be.

OPPO is getting ready to come up with a much faster and user-friendly design with its new interface. Although the features of ColorOS 12 are not clear, it is known that a multi-screen sharing similar to Huawei stands out. According to the information announced, OPPO named the feature it will offer as “Cross-Screen Connection”.

With ColorOS 12, a simpler design and transparent icons are expected to appear. Simplicity is also included in the file manager section of the interface, which is expected to come with a control center similar to Xiaomi MIUI 12. It will also offer various improvements in the widget and settings section.

It is expected that all the features of the interface will be explained in detail with the smartphones that will receive ColorOS 12 in the coming days.
