Stock User Interface

ColorOS 7 is going to feature a better and a minimalistic user interface which will look more like the MIUI by Xiaomi. The icons have been redesigned to look different from before. The toggles and pop up menus are different too. There will be an app drawer too so if you like an app drawer on your phone then you get that too.

Breeno Smart Voice Assistant

Oppo is developing their smart voice assistant called Breeno which will replace the Google Assistant in Oppo smartphones. The new assistant will only be available in China and won’t be coming to the Indian ColorOS 7 update. Neither of Oppo or Realme smartphones in India will get this assistant in the update.

Improved RAM Management

Oppo will be improving the RAM management in the ColorOS 7 to get smoother and faster multitasking. This means the smartphones with lesser RAM will also run smoother and multitask faster than before. This is another hint that the ColorOS 7 will have near to the stock user interface and contain lesser bloatware.
