The new version of ColorOS will be launched at 7pm AEDT on 14 September. An updated public beta and rollout plans for OPPO users will also be released.
"OPPO continues to work in close collaboration with our long-standing partner, Google, to deliver exceptional user experiences to our customers," said OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran.
"We are proud to be launching ColorOS11, welcoming Google's Android 11 release with our highly customised, efficient and intelligent Android-based mobile OS."
"In Android 11, conversations across messaging apps will be moved to a dedicated space in the notifications section, making it easy to manage your conversations in one spot;
"Bubbles makes multi-tasking on your device a breeze. You can now respond to important conversations without having to switch back and forth between what you’re doing and your messaging app;
"Built-in screen recording is finally here: Now you can capture and share what’s happening on your phone. Record with sound from your mic, device or both - no extra app required;
"You can now access all your smart devices in one place, simply by long pressing the power button. Control your connected devices like your thermostat or smart lock with a tap, so there’s no need to open multiple apps.
"Media controls have been redesigned and are more helpful than ever. You can now quickly switch the device your media is playing on, so you can take your music with you from your headphones to your speaker without missing a beat;
"Android Auto now works wirelessly for all phones running Android 11 as long as you have a compatible vehicle. So you can bring the best of your phone on every drive while skipping the cable—get directions with a tap, talk to send a text, play your favorite media and get help from Google Assistant;
"One-time permissions will allow you to grant single use access to your most sensitive permissions: microphone, camera and location. The next time the app needs access to the sensors, it must ask you for your permission again;
"If you haven’t used an app that you installed on your device in a while, you may not want it to keep accessing your data. Android will now 'auto-reset' permissions for your unused apps and notify you accordingly. You can always decide to re-grant the app permissions the next time you use the app;
"With additional Google Play system update modules, even more security and privacy fixes can be sent to your phone from Google Play, in the same way your apps update. So you’ll get these fixes as soon as they’re available, without having to wait for a full OS update;
"For Android Enterprise users, Android 11 brings the privacy protections you get on a personally-owned device to your company-owned device. The work profile gives your IT department tools to manage a device without monitoring your personal profile data or activity on your phone ; and
"If you're using a Pixel 2 or above you'll get additional features to organise and manage your phone, like app suggestions on the home screen based on your daily routines, and new overview actions that allow you to take a screenshot of an app and select text and images, and more."
