OPPO has officially launched the global version of ColorOS 13, one of the first operating systems based on the new Android 13.

ColorOS 13 incorporates a variety of Android 13 features such as smart multi-device connection options and security improvements, as well as a new Aquamorphic design which is unique to the software.

About 35 smartphone models within the year in more than 60 countries and regions will be included in the ColorOS 13 rollout, starting with the Find X5 Pro and Find X5.

Fundamental performance

The ColorOS 13 launch marks the debut of the Dynamic Computing Engine, a technical solution OPPO developed in-house.

This aims to provide a smoother and more stable system in a way where users will feel the improvements to the overall experience. The most significant improvements are:

  • improved battery life
  • ability to keep more apps open in the background

Smart features

Color OS13’s Smart Always-On Display can now display information not just related to music but also food delivery apps for quicker access from the screen.

OPPO also developed a smartphone-tailored Meeting Assistant for more seamlessness, as well as Multi-Screen Connect which supports connectivity between a smartphone and OPPO Pad Air or PC.

Comfortable UI

For the theme palette, ColorOS 13 adapted a design loosely based on the sky’s color during sunrise and sunset. The system font focused on better readability, while the layout has been upgraded.

There will also be adaptive layouts for screen sizes and more recognizable icons. Additionally, built-in Always-On display images called “Homeland” shows wild animals on the home screen.

Google implies Pixel 8 will be more innovative than iPhone 15

Through a new ad



Almost a week ago, Apple released a new ad campaign to make fun of the newly released iPhone 15 series. Though the campaign seemingly started a new era after the #BestPhonesForever campaign, Google isn’t done with the latter yet. A few days before the launch of the Pixel 8 series, the company is back with a new #BestPhonesForever ad to both hype the upcoming flagship and ridicule Apple’s devices.

In the most recent video, the iPhone and the Pixel are alone in the woods telling scary stories with each other. Scary as it seems, the setting is only a backdrop for the meat of the ad. After the Pixel shared a story, the iPhone voiced out worries about the upcoming Pixel 8 launch.

According to the ad, while the iPhone 15 got a “different mute button, a dynamic-er island, and a new charging port,” it was scared that the Pixel 8 was going to easily take the spotlight in a few days. “What if your launch is more innovative?” the iPhone asks.

The ad doesn’t really get into how the Pixel 8 might be more innovative. However, with the sheer number of leaks available now, it’s already clear what the company is launching on October 4.

Regardless, it’s abundantly clear that Google believes highly in its upcoming presentation, especially when compared to the iPhone 15 launch.

Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash character trailer revealed

Check out what the cast can do in battle



Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash

The first cast of playable characters for upcoming Bandai Namco title Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash has been revealed through the game’s first trailer.

Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki and Satoru Gojo are all shown in the trailer. Meanwhile, battle footage featuring Ryomen Sukuna has been showcased as well to give fans a tease of what to expect.

Itadori is a melee puncher who has a passive skill called “High Gear,” relying on Cursed Energy for him to be able to dash easier. He also has “Divergent Fist” for close-range situations.

Fushiguro is a close-range Combo Master that specializes in coordinate strikes with Shikigami. His “Ten Shadows Technique” will summon Nue, Toad, and Divine Dog. These can be commanded by players to attack on their own.

Meanwhile, Kugisaki is a mid-range striker who uses the “Straw Doll Technique: Hairpin” attack on opponents. This hammers several nails onto foes several times, inflicting more damage. Moreover, “Marking” will allow these planted nails to detonate from any distance.

Gojo specializes in crowd control. He utilizes “Technique Amplification: Blue” to block the movement of enemies. Then there’s “Cursed Technique Reversal: Red” to keep enemies from coming toward him.

His powerful “Hollow Technique: Purple” takes time to build up, but can finish off enemies using a powerful move to knock them all down.

Lastly, Sukuna acts as an anti-hero who can make it difficult for both friends and foes. The wide-range melee attacker can blow up an entire battlefield, while his “Reverse Cursed Technique” allows him to heal by counterattacking.

Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash will be available for PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam at a yet to be announced date.

Watch the trailer.
