A greater and healthier visual experience with a 120Hz screen
ColorOS 7.1 comes with system-wide enhancements that support a 120Hz ultra-high refresh rate, to maximize the potential of the screen and capture every detail in video and animation. A Smart Mode recognizes user scenarios and intelligently adjusts the refresh rate to achieve a balance between smooth visuals and optimal power consumption; users can also opt to manually set the refresh rate at 60Hz or 120Hz.
The update delivers a significant boost to video quality. The O1 Ultra Vision Engine’s Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation (MEMC) can boost 30-frame videos to 60 frames (default) or even up to 120 frames, while it’s HDR Video Enhancer transforms SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) videos to HDR (High Dynamic Range) quality while streaming, generating clearer, sharper, and brighter videos. The All Pixel Omni-directional PDAF improves focusing performance while shooting, enabling users to focus fast and accurately, in dim environments as well as on moving objects. Live HDR videos help capture an exquisite level of detail, with clearer highlights and shadows even in backlit scenes, realizing videos of movie-like quality.
With care for users’ eyes in mind, ColorOS 7.1 offers Natural Tone Display, an adaptive AI display system that automatically adjusts colour temperatures to ensure display consistency, and AI Brightness, which learns user habits to tailor the display’s brightness accordingly and prevent harm from extended use in extreme light conditions. Meanwhile, Dark Mode provides a soothing reading experience, as the low-brightness, flicker-free feature protects users’ eyes from the screen’s pulse width modulation (PWM) frequency.
Designed for improved work and life efficiency
As the work and life boundaries merge, OPPO Find X2 with ColorOS 7.1 is optimized for work. With Wireless Printing, users can now wirelessly print photos and PDF files without any additional applications. Text Scanner recognizes and highlights text in pictures, auto-correcting key areas to generate a clear image and enabling users to take photos of text for note-taking and reading.
ColorOS 7.1 supports multiple accounts on a single phone with Multi-user Mode, meaning that multiple users can seamlessly use the same phone or one user can use a phone for many scenarios, without worrying about different data interfering with each other. To help users unwind physically and mentally, OPPO Relax offers exercises, pleasant background music, and ambient white noise to assist breathing, sleep, and concentration.
A simple and lightweight design to refresh the user experience
ColorOS 7 adopted a lightweight design approach that simplified the user interface while offering users more controls over the UI, helping users focus on their content while reducing visual fatigue, which was welcomed by many users since it first launched in India. ColorOS 7.1 takes this design approach one step further, unveiling even more lightweight wallpapers, icons, and animations to give users even greater options and make the overall user experience more intuitive and effortless.
A smoother system performance
ColorOS 7.1 unveils impressive improvements to the system performance. Anti-fragmentation technology reduces back-end memory fragmentation and decreases app termination and lagging by 93%. Cache Preload ensures that cold starts are as fast as warm starts, increasing the average app launching speed by 25%. The most-used interfaces are also pre-rendered to enhance screen interaction response speeds considerably, boosting the frame rate by 19% and touch response by 38% while gaming. By anticipating user behaviour, ColorOS 7.1 automatically closes apps that the user is unlikely to open anytime soon, increasing system RAM utilization by 40%.
