Oppo has a new initiative called Project Spectrum, that will bring a brand new ROM to their devices. The new software combines elements from stock Lollipop with ColorOS functionality.
This new official stock ROM for Oppo phones will probably be ready before the year is out, since the demo below looks very stable. The Oppo Find 7 is among the first devices to get it and advantages here include speed and lack of bloatware. We’ll also get betting off screen gestures, MaxxAudio acoustic tuning and EQ and a new camera app.
This camera app is taken from ColorOS, has a Manual mode with quite a few tweaks and reminds me a bit of the EMUI camera app from Huawei devices. The firmware isn’t ready for download, but I’m sure it will be up soon. Project Spectrum wants to achieve what Oppo couldn’t with ColorOS and I find it interesting that it’s based on Lollipop instead of Marshmallow.
It appears this choice was made because of the Qualcomm base, that’s not ready for Marshmallow yet.
