Oppo's Color 3.0 UI leaks, reveals flatter design
Oppo users rockin' the manufacturer's recent handsets (like the Oppo R7) have been using the ColorOS 2.1 UI. While there has been talk of an update to ColorOS 3.0, we haven't heard much about it until today. On Sunday, a series of leaked photographs displayed what is allegedly software version 3.0.0_151216_Alpha, running on the Oppo R7 Plus.

If legit, the images reveal that ColorOS 3.0 will be flatter, offering a comparison to Xiaomi's MIUI. The ColorOS 3.0 UI is based on Android 5.1.1, and features a new dialer with a Yellow Pages function built in. A small arrow at the bottom left corner of the screen allows you to hide the on-screen buttons.

There is no word on when we might see ColorOS 3.0 UI introduced to the public. We do have quite a few leaked images of the UI that you can take a look at by rummaging through the slideshow below.

LG Optimus UX lets me hide on-screen buttons too!
Nothing new, and I'm not a fan of flat-looking UI either (à la iOS).

Don't mind flat design, but this version looks like iOS.

Damn does that relly mean the Find 9 will come with an outdated OS once again. There was hope Oppo would learn from the past, but we still aren't quite there apparently. Only hope is they release it with Spectrum OS 6.0 In Europe and USA

ColorOS is simply behind in terms of Android versions but I like ColorOS that was in my Find 7a. But won't go back to it when Spectrum is here. M for Spectrum is next year too.

Seriously looks like a hybrid between EMUI and MIUI. Goddam
