In the past, Oppo wasn’t a company concerned with Android updates providing only a few major updates for select flagships. However, this has changed in recent years with the company bringing timely updates for its handsets. Shortly after the Android 11 announcement, the Chinese firm unveiled its ColorOS 11 skin with many improvements and new features. Today, the Android 11 beta program is reaching three new Oppo handsets, the Oppo Reno 2F, the Reno 10x Zoom, and the Oppo F15. Unfortunately, this covers only the Indian variants. But we expect a wider rollout to happen in other regions soon.
If you own any of these handsets and want to apply for the update, you’ll need to enroll via the Settings app. Just open the app, go to Software Update >> Settings again, and then “Trial Version”. Once you’ve filled out the form, you will be able to upgrade to the beta version of the software. Unfortunately, it seems that the beta program is closed for the Oppo Reno 2F. Apparently, Oppo already has the number of beta testers it needs to keep developing the firmware. Take in mind that this firmware is intended for beta testers and may come with a large number of bugs. We assume that it isn’t ready for daily usage, so make sure to not flash it on your daily driver.
The update introduces a set of new goodies from Android 11 and ColorOS 11
After installing the ColorOS 11 beta update, Oppo Reno 2F, F15, and Reno 10 Zoom users can look forward to all the latest Android 11 features. It includes the Chat Bubbles, more organized notifications with separate Conversation Notifications, Smart Device Controls, One-Time Permissions, Media Controls in Quick Settings, and more. On top of that, ColorOS 11 also brings its own set of improvements. Oppo’s latest software skin brings new theming options, new wallpapers, Flex Drop, Super Power Saving Mode, Ringtone Maker, revamped Dark Mode, and more.
Oppo Reno 2F, Reno 10X Zoom, and Oppo F15 were released with Android 9 Pie
The Oppo Reno 2F was released with Android 9 Pie in October 2019. The device received an Android 10 update and is now part of the ColorOS 11 beta program. The Oppo Reno 10X Zoom also came with Android 9 Pie and will receive its second major Android update in the form of Android 11. The Oppo F15 is a very intriguing entry in the list of Android 11 eligible devices.
Just like the other devices it came with Android 9 Pie, however, it has a MediaTek chipset. It’s not common to see devices with MediaTek chipsets getting two major Android updates. So it’s truly remarkable to see this level of support coming from Oppo.
