As Oppo took wraps off the new Reno 4 series of smartphones, it also took the opportunity to announce ColorOS 7.2 based on Android 10. It is the newest iteration of its custom Android skin and builds upon everything that ColorOS 7 has to offer. It means users will not only get a few new features but also improvements in existing ones.
Moonlight Night View Video:
We have seen smartphone makers release night modes for still photos but Oppo is taking it one step further. The Moonlight Night View mode is meant to help users record better low-light and night videos. It is claimed to improve exposure and clarity in night videos by up to 74% and 34% respectively.
Oppo's Soloop Video Editor is filled with various video editing options that help the taking video editing game to the next level. It has now received a new Movie Mode that lets users edit videos in a 21:9 aspect ratio, 10 color filters, and multiple video templates. Additional options include the ability to adjust shutter speed and exposure of a raw footage.
Intelligent Battery Saver:
This new feature from Oppo is AI-powered and is meant to help users get most out of their battery capacity. It will essentially study the usage pattern and put those apps to sleep which it will find are unlikely to be used. This will result in reduced battery consumption which will eventually mean a longer battery life.
Super Power Saver:
It is another battery save feature but it will get triggered only when the battery level is low. It will force stop all the apps and services except for important ones like voice calling and SMSes. The aim of the feature is to help the low battery to last for as long as possible and to give you a few extra minutes so that you can find a charging plug nearby.
Images AI Fix:
If you happen to have old and blurry images that do not look good digitally, this AI-powered feature will help them get better. It will apply some automatic fixes that will make them appear more detailed and better.
This is another AI-based feature that will study user behavior. It will look for apps that a user uses at a particular time of the day and will launch them automatically in the background. As a result, when the user will actually tap on the app icon, it will launch much faster and he will be able to get started instead of waiting for it to load up.
Oppo has now made Reno4 camera SDK available for developers with ColorOS 7.2 release. This will help developers in integrating camera functions with their own apps.
As the name suggests, Oppo Labs is the place to test out features that Oppo has been experimenting with. These will include features that have not been released for the masses yet.
