Opera Mini Next

, , , , , ,

Opera Mini is the mobile web browser that turns any feature phone into a smarter device. Now, with Opera Mini Next, a preview version of what’s next for Opera Mini, feature phones get even smarter with advanced social media functions.

The web doesn’t stop evolving, and Opera Mini evolves with it. Introducing the Smart Page, a new feature previewing in the Opera Mini Next series of browsers for feature phones, to be launched on all Opera Mini browsers for feature phones later this year. The Smart Page will take its position alongside Opera’s famous Speed Dial shortcuts and give feature phones smarter access to social networks, the latest news and more.

Platforms supported

  • J2ME (Java phones)
  • Blackberry
  • S60


With social integration of Facebook and Twitter right in the first screen of Opera Mini Next, feature phone users get even closer to the social web of their lives and a smarter online experience.

In smartphone versions of Opera Mini Next, the Smart Page will not make an appearance in this version. For smartphones, we’ve focused on improving the web experience itself. Android users of Opera Mini Next will get a smoother browsing experience, with hardware acceleration and a revamped Speed Dial. The revamped Speed Dial screen, with an unlimited number of Speed Dial shortcuts, debuts in all versions of Opera Mini Next for easy access to all your favorite websites.

Opera Mobile is a full browser with client-side support for JavaScript, HTML5, Flash (Android only) and more. In Opera Mini, the browser engine is running on Opera's servers. Web pages are transcoded and compressed up to 90% before being downloaded to the device, making Opera Mini lightning fast and also much cheaper if you are paying per megabyte.

As always, we welcome your feedback in our forum, and please report any bugs in our bug report wizard. Thanks!

Regards,
The Opera Mini Team

yes Do you have a download link for Opera Mini next?

Mika Takalamtakala Monday, February 27, 2012 11:32:34 AM

Is it possible to disable the new HOME screen? I see no use for it, it would be just in the way in accessing the speed dials - and increased number of the speed dials is fantastic.

This version will install next to the version you already have on your device. It has a different icon, and is called "Opera Mini Next".

No, this can't be installed over the current 6.5. You will have to wait for the final release before that happens.

huxr Monday, February 27, 2012 1:21:59 PM

Lol wut? S60's are feature phones now?

But you might have a point. :'(

João Davidpiroxicam Monday, February 27, 2012 3:47:01 PM

Thanks for these new versions. Innovating as always.

SergejsUsergejsu Monday, February 27, 2012 4:20:36 PM

So it means, that this release can not have access to saved pages from OM 6.5.1 for Symbian? sad

Damear A. DadabayevKPbICMAH Monday, February 27, 2012 5:02:01 PM

You can use Opera Link to synchronize the settings between current and Next version of Opera Mini. Not sure about the saved pages, though. But who can stop you from trying? smile

Thu Winwikipedian Monday, February 27, 2012 6:11:12 PM

How does Opera Mini Next auto updates? Also, Opera Mini STILL refuses to capture the password of Gmail.

Ngamer01 Monday, February 27, 2012 7:21:21 PM

Since there is now a home page built into Opera Mini Next, there should be an option for users to have the home pages of their choice if they don't want Opera's default home page.

For those worried about access to Speed Dials, Opera Mini team could make a "opera:speeddials" URL or something that we could bookmark or make that the home page if wanted.

Thank you guys for your great work! What I really miss is a feed reader button. always typing feed:list to adress is so boring!

Rakeshsuwalkarakesh Tuesday, February 28, 2012 2:16:44 AM

Need skin(theme) support like 4.4

Rakeshsuwalkarakesh Tuesday, February 28, 2012 3:31:35 AM

Nice now we can easily change the speed dial order

Khaled KhalilKhaled-Khalil Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:14:21 AM

Even greater

huxr Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:41:37 AM

HUGE thumbs up for implementing session restore (S60 version)!! smile

How come you didn't boast about is (rightfully)? smile

This will be an incredible headache-saver for me.

banned745645pavvel1610 Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:43:10 AM

@Wolfgang Imhof you can add it to your speed dial page

Thomas Oneclicksamoht1 Tuesday, February 28, 2012 10:21:18 AM

"Next" is a even better browser than 6.5 up party

I still prefer java version over sis as java has fullscreen edit smile

Scalak Tuesday, February 28, 2012 10:42:08 AM

Scrolling is now very good on my GT-S5620 Monte:)
Opera Mini Next is super!yes

lokeshkarn Tuesday, February 28, 2012 11:09:11 AM

Could someone tell me when Java version will release, an estimate date?

Final version or Next? Next is already out (http://m.opera.com/next), but the final version hasn't. The Next is the "beta" version of Opera Mini.

On which device would you say full screen edit is better? I'm just curious.

Thomas Oneclicksamoht1 Tuesday, February 28, 2012 11:53:39 AM

On Nokia E72 smile

Edit:
I have a nice black background in native editor. If background was changes from white to black (or grey) in Sis I would start use it smile

lokeshkarn Wednesday, February 29, 2012 1:26:15 AM

Thanx Thu Win, I was just checking o.opera.com.
New version is awesome, I liked the most is it doesn't load or connect when you get out of comment box.

megdarkness2009 Wednesday, February 29, 2012 9:12:32 AM

Филипп,а можно по русски сказать,что нового появилось в Опере Мини Next?

Lalnaua Wednesday, February 29, 2012 11:57:40 AM

wow.. This is the best Opera Mini ever so far. It runs very well on my j2me (s40 v3) phone, unlike Mini 5 and 6 it doesn't close so often because of 'application error' (i.e. something like - out of memory..bla bla bla), which I do hope wouldn't happen later:) I LIKE Opera Mini Next VERY MUCH.
Btw, is there a shortcut to 'go to bottom/top page' like it was in Mini 4? Someone plz tell me..

No, it was removed to make room for other shortcuts.

Lalnaua Wednesday, February 29, 2012 4:31:05 PM

thanks Marianne for the information:)

Overall satisfied.

Mati Kuuskksuuk Wednesday, February 29, 2012 8:20:59 PM

Nokia E51, all OK, except all feeds, what exists in Mini, doesn't exist in Next. It must be a bug, as all others, bookmarks, speed dial does exists. I also tried disconnect/connect Opera Link, still no luck, no feds in Next.

The feeds does not carry over. You would have to re-add. Please support this request to add the feature to Opera Mini: http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1307912
