It is still not very clear how the mechanisms that require internet should work, but appears to be a direct integration between browser and shortcuts to popular services in the country, such as Alipay.

Interconnection between devices

In the case of ColorOS 10, this will also be present, although in a more discreet way: the Cross-Screen Interconnection will allow the operation of phones through desktops and notebooks.

When he arrives at ColorOS 22?

Oppo has already confirmed that the high-end device Find X3 Pro Photographer Edition will be the first model to run ColorOS 04.

Next month, the Find X2 and Reno 6 series are expected to test the system, while owners of Reno 5, K9, A phones93, A93, Ace2 and OnePlus 8 will receive the update in December.

This is a good news for owners of OnePlus devices, after all they will also have the new system . The two companies even announced a partnership to integrate the Oxygen OS code to ColorOS, which would bear fruit with the launch of Android 10. With this, it is possible to infer that this new version should encompass the best of both modifications.
