Oppo has offered a preview of version 2.1.0i of their ColorOS based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, giving their users an opportunity to preview some of the features headed to their smartphones in the near future. This version is currently in its final stages of internal testing, and will likely be available for download within days in a beta form.
The loyal Oppo fanbase have been frustrated by the slow adoption of Android Lollipop by the Color OS interface, even then, many updates have been Betas, and some official releases do not get pushed via over-the-air at all. Given the vocal community along with a consistent string of updates (even Betas), Oppo earns props for engaging with its customers the way it does.
With ColorOS 2.1.0i your Oppo handset will get a flatter, brighter UI, bringing it somewhat in line with the Material Design principles. The custom platform still manages to retain its semi-skeuomorphic texture from previous releases. The music player is updated significantly, with more of a “CD look” versus the “vinyl on a turn-table” accent.
Home screen folders have been cleaned up, and the preview is promoting a much smoother action when executing commands. Changes to the home-screen background are done with a real-time preview. Apps are set to start faster, the power-up cycle is faster, and images render quicker.
Other elements to recent UI updates remain, such as the single-layer launcher set-up. Since ColorOS 2.1 is based on Android 5.0, Oppo has even included an “Easter egg” Android Lollipop game which you can see in the following video demo.
