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.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a PC port

Coming later this fall

Published

on

After the first one got a much-awaited port, it was only a matter of time before a second webslinger pops up on PC. Enjoying a much shorter lead time than the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is officially getting a PC port later this year.

Earlier this year, Sony released the official port for the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, featuring Peter Parker as the titular superhero. At the time, Insomniac and Nixxes Software (the studio behind the port) only had perfunctory plans to bring Miles Morales along for the PC ride.

In practically no time at all, Sony has announced the official coming of the second game through its own teaser trailer. Though the trailer does not end with a release date, it will launch sometime in the fall of this year.

In terms of ports, Sony has found massive success in bringing its formerly exclusive games to more markets. Now, PC players can finally get access to critically acclaimed title from consoles. In Spider-Man’s case, various modders have already created a thriving community for the first game. One such segment involves replacing Peter’s model with other characters like Stan Lee.

Will Miles Morales get the same hype and fanfare? Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues the story started by Peter Parker. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Miles sets off on his own adventure with electrifying powers.

If you can’t wait for the PC port, the game is still available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
