Yesterday, Oppo announced Reno 4 series in China alongside products like Enco W51, Oppo Band, and more. To everyone’s surprise, these handsets run ColorOS 7.2, a brand new version of the company’s mobile software. So, here in this post, let us deep dive to know what’s new.
Super Night Scene for Videos
As the name suggests, Oppo has developed an algorithm called ‘Moonlight Night Scene Video’ (translated) to record better quality videos in low-light. The brand claims it enhances the brightness and clarity of videos by 74% and 34% respectively.
Movie Mode for Videos
Xiaomi introduced Vlog mode in MIUI 11 / 12 for certain phones. Similarly, Oppo has added movie mode capable of recording videos in 21:9 aspect ratio. Users can choose from 10 movie filters, several templates, and adjust parameters such as exposure, shutter speed, and more. This feature is part of ColorOS’ Soloop video editor.
Super Power Saving Mode
This mode will help users make use of the last remaining percentage of their phone’s battery very efficiently. Oppo says users can use WeChat for 1.5 hours (90 minutes) with only 5% battery when the Super Power Saving Mode turned on.
AI App Pre-launch
The system improves the app launch speed significantly by analyzing the user’s daily usage habits and trends. This feature is also found in MIUI 12.
People either scan or click pictures of their old physical photographs. Usually, those are of bad quality and need some edit. AI Repair does this job for users by removing visible blurs and noises.
Oppo Camera SDK
At Google I/O 2019, the search giant announced CameraX API to let third-party apps have access to features of the device’s stock camera app. Oppo was the first smartphone maker to announce its involvement in the project.
Now, with ColorOS 7.2, the company has released an updated SDK that allows third-party apps to access ultra-wide angle camera as well as stabilization functionality.
ColorOS 7.2 Rollout
ColorOS 7.2 only comes pre-installed on Reno 4 and Reno 4 Pro for now. A few months back, Oppo announced ColorOS 7.1 with the release on Find X2 and Find X2 Pro. This particular version is also only available on the launch phones and Oppo Ace 2.
Sadly, Oppo is still rolling out ColorOS 7 (announced in November 2019) to the older devices running ColorOS 6.1. The company is yet to announce which handsets will be receiving the now released latest version.
Since most of the features in ColorOS 7.1 / 7.2 are targeted at mid-range and high-end smartphones, we don’t expect the company to roll out these versions to all the devices that are receiving ColorOS 7.
