The new Intelligent Battery Saver will learn the user’s habits and automatically put some apps to sleep when they are unlikely to be used. By doing it, the battery on the smartphone will be conserved and the night time drain will be avoided. This will improve night-time battery consumption by up to 10%.
AI image fix
AI image fix feature will help preserve digital copies of old or blurry pictures. This feature will automatically repair the pictures by removing haze, noise, graininess, or blur in the older images.
Super Power Saver
Super Power Saver mode will stop everything except for the most important features like calling or messaging. OPPO claims that 1.5 hours of messaging on WeChat will only utilize a 5% battery when the phone is in Super Power Saving mode.
ColorOS will now be able to pre-launch applications in the background even before you tap on the app icon by learning your usage habits. This feature will reduce the app startup time but may reduce battery life.
Camera SDK which will allow third-party app developers to use capabilities of all the cameras on the Reno4 as well as all the features natively supported in the stock Camera app. For example, the SDK will allow apps like Instagram to extend support for OPPO’s beauty or HDR mode, or use any camera other than the primary one for taking the pictures directly from within Instagram.
