13 Exciting New Features Inside ColorOS 14

ColorOS 14 is now in the process of rolling out, with more phones set to get the update in March – here’s all of its best new features…

If you’re running a compatible OPPO phone, ColorOS 14 is now rolling out. Built on top of Android 14, ColorOS 14 brings with it a host of new features and abilities.

From its refreshed UX design to performance enhancements, this is a pretty sizeable update with plenty of new bells and whistles. And while it is a little late to the party – Android 15 will soon begin rolling out – the update does bring with it plenty of updates and tweaks.

OPPO has made some pretty big promises about this update, most of which relates to how it will improve performance on its phones. OPPO says the battery life will improve and the general speed of phones will increase once the update is installed. 

The only downside? Once OPPO users actually get this update, it’ll be time for Android 15. Google’s Pixel phones should get Android 15 in and around September/October which means OPPO users could be waiting until 2025 for the release of ColorOS 15.
