Although many users criticize the choice of the BBK group of merge Oppo and OnePlusinstead, it seems that those who decide the awards for the best design have to say the opposite. The Chinese company ranked first in four categories at the prestigious design competition Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2022. The Chinese brand was praised for its proprietary user interface coloros 12, waiting for the release of ColorOS 13 which has been announced a few days ago.
Oppo has focused a lot on ColorOS, the Android skin of its smartphones, so much so that it has won four first prizes for its design
The first prize went to Oppo Sans, the company's universal font that supports 11 languages. It differs from analogues in the visual optimization of each font, which greatly improves readability regardless of the diagonal and model of the device. It follows Or Relax, an application designed to help users relax from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. The app contains a selection of relaxing music, as well as i sounds of nature (the sound of a waterfall, the singing of birds, the sounds of rain, etc.) cities like Reykjavik, Beijing and Tokyo.
The third prize in the list is the one given to Omoji: “animated” digital avatars using a special face capture algorithm. To implement this functionality, the developers used 52 of the most common facial expressions in combination with over two hundred stylistic elements. And the fourth prize for the best implementation of the split screen. In ColorOS 12, this function is expressed with a vertical swipe with two fingers, which allows you to switch to multitasking without unnecessary gestures.
OPPO also shared plans for the next generation of the proprietary skin. The company's specialists are now actively working on ColorOS 13, which will arrive with Android 13. The official presentation of the interface is scheduled for next Thursday 18 August. Owners of the flagship smartphones of the Find X5 series will be the first to be able to test it.
