We’re just a day away from the November 20 launch of ColorOS 7 in China and a week away from its November 26 global debut in India. But just ahead of the event, OPPO has released a couple of teaser trailers to talk up some features of the custom operating system.

(Update: It’s official! See ColorOS 7 launched. Here’s when your phone will get it.)

There will be a new Focus Mode, which is a feature the company hopes can improve your sleep pattern and timing. Perhaps it provides a more specific kind of Do Not Disturb settings that you can tweak.

There’s also Soloop Recording, which offers AI-based, one-button video editing. We must note that the OPPO Reno 2 series already has a Soloop feature, so perhaps this update introduces new settings, or it could be included in the stock camera app. This feature might also be limited to the higher-end phones that can handle the processing power it might require.

ColorOS 7 will also be optimized for gaming with new game acceleration features that aim not to degrade picture quality, frame rate, and resolution. One of the gaming-related ColorOS 7 trailers shared in Chinese social media accounts can be found here.

OPPO wants to provide an optimized and more comfortable experience with ColorOS 7. Some of the other features we’re expecting to show up include a system-wide Dark Mode and a more minimalistic user interface.

Other details we also expect to hear at the event include the release schedule for this update as well as a list of compatible smartphones. The OPPO Reno 10X Zoom Edition is expected to get ColorOS 7.

As for former OPPO sub-brand Realme’s take on the custom OS, its India CEO, Madhav Sheth, has promised a closer-to-stock Android UI version of ColorOS 7. Rumor has it that it was going to develop a custom RealmeOS user interface but then decided against it.
