An OS that’s open to the Android developers.
Sharing the common value of a healthy mutual exchange with Android partners and contributing to building a culture of openness and technological exchange to enhance both platforms, ColorOS has incorporated many stock Android features. Similarly, ColorOS has inspired the customizable trend in Android 12, like the Wallpaper-based Theming system in Material You, which one would be able to find a similar self-developed feature in previous ColorOS editions.

In addition to the free camera SDKs covering OPPO’s most advantageous camera capabilities – including Ultra Steady Video Shooting, HDR, Super Wide-Angle, etc., OPPO has further opened its HyperBoost, Color Vision Enhancement to benefit Android app developers and enhance the Android ecosystem.
