The next big update on OPPO’s interface will be called the ColorOS 11, jumping the moniker from its predecessor, the ColorOS 7.
OPPO didn’t provide the reason why they skipped the numbers 8 to 10, but we suspect it’s about uniformity. As you know, the upcoming ColorOS 11 will ship on top of the also new Android 11 operating system from Google.
Expect the naming uniformity to continue in the generations to come as OPPO always refreshes the ColorOS alongside every major Android releases. With that, we might see ColorOS 12 to go with Android 12, and so on.
Going back, the Android 11-based ColorOS 11 will make its official debut on Monday, September 14, 2020, at 9 AM GMT (5 PM Philippine time) on all of OPPO’s social media handles. You can bookmark this article to see the live stream video linked below.
Although it’s yet to be released, a ColorOS Beta version of the update was already seeded on the flagship Find X2 devices and the global versions of the midrange Reno 3 and 3 Pro. If you own these devices and you signed up for the beta program, you already have an idea of what the final version would be like.
In general, the Android 11 will bring a couple of improvements to its supported devices. One of the biggest ones is for security, which will prevent snoops from spying you using the camera and microphone.
