Oppo coats the Android operating system with a heavy overlay known as ColorOS. The version shipped with the R5 appeared dated compared to the fresh design of stock Android 5.0 Lollipop. Oppo has updated its software to ColorOS 2.1; however, it remains based on the older 4.4 version of Android.
The R7 was unveiled yesterday at a launch event in Beijing and will go on sale in Australia within a few months.
