OPPO and vivo, both smartphone brands from the Chinese behemoth B.B.K. Electronics, have wasted no time in releasing betas of Android 12, Google's mobile operating system that was announced at the search company's annual I/O event held on 18 May.

OPPO has its own skin, ColorOS, over Android, while vivo has a skin known as FuntouchOS. vivo's flagship iQOO 7 Legend is among its first devices to be able to run the Android 12 beta. OPPO launched the beta for its flagship X3 Find Pro.

As far as new features in Android 12 go, there is more compatibility with multimedia formats and support for more content insertion. The UI details have new functional bars and updated operating modes.

Gamers have not been forgotten, with apps able to provide audio-coupled haptic feedback through the phone's vibrations.

"We are glad to have Google as a long-term partner as we have had successful collaborations over the years, working together to guarantee ColorOS keeps up with the latest version of Android," said OPPO Australia managing director Michael Tran.

"Currently we have close to 400 million monthly active users of ColorOS around the world. With Android 12, we will continue our momentum to provide developers and users the most vibrant experience."

Developers can visit the developer sites of vivo and OPPO to experience the Android 12 beta which is made for the two models mentioned.
