Oppo Android 12 (ColorOS 12) Update: Beta, Release Date, Top Features, and Eligible Device
Oppo has lately done a decent job with software updates. This BBK owned company has impressively conducted its Android 11 rollout last year. And we expect the same with this year’s Android 12 based ColorOS 12.
The Android 12 is already out for Pixels and Oppo should be busy making its own customized skin based on this OS. Looking at the last year’s version, the Oppo users might have pretty high expectations from the ColorOS 12 this time.
After serving the Pixels with the latest Android OS, Google then offers it to other OEMs running their custom skins based on Android. The same will go with the Android 12 as well. And Oppo, being one such third-party OEM will introduce its newest generation software, the ColorOS 12 this fall.
Once the Android 12 is officially announced, the other OEM working on Android begin their preparations to introduce their custom skin based on this OS. As for the Oppo users, the ColorOS 12 will be incoming this fall on the top of Android 12.
As usual, we can expect the ColorOS 12 somewhere around September and soon after that the top models of Oppo will begin their beta program, followed by others.
