Users of OPPO’s Find 7 and 7a smartphones rejoice, you’ll finally be getting some Android KitKat goodness (while others move on to getting some Lollipop, haha) at long last. OPPO has just released V2.0.0i of its own take on Android called ColorOS, and this update will be available for the OPPO Find 7 and 7a.
Features of the new version include a more minimalist design aesthetic, a global Gaussian blur effect for that svelte feel, more fluid animations, a redesigned task manager, and all the other inherent goodies coming with Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone’s relatively strong specs should be able to handle the transition, although we don’t really know how much the blur effect and the animations will tax the phone’s resources in daily use.
I suppose time will tell if this iteration of ColorOS will be a user favorite. According to OPPO’s official forum post, the update will not be available OTA, so users will have to manually do the update by downloading the files needed. For more info on the features, check out the video below.
