OPPO starts rolling out ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 for the F17 Pro and Find X2
OPPO has announced an expanded roll-out for ColorOS 11, the latest version of its operating system, based on Android 11. After a lengthy beta program, we got the first hints of a stable release last week, but now the Chinese OEM has announced the first countries to receive the rollout. A post to the OPPO Community forums today enthuses: “Dear ColorOS Superfans, The long-awaited Official version of Find X2 Series ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 Official Version finally kicks off. So hurry up & don’t miss it.”
The first models to receive the ColorOS 11 update are the OPPO Find X2 Series, which is currently rolling out in India, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Pakistan, Egypt, and Vietnam. We’ve also confirmed that it will arrive in the UK in early December.
Also at the front of the queue is the OPPO F17 Pro, where the update is currently available in India. Users may get a push notification, or alternatively, look for the Software Update page in Settings. In all cases, users who have taken part in the beta will be upgraded to the stable build.
In addition to all the lovely new features in Android 11, OPPO’s version also brings a wallpaper and ringtone maker, customizable always-on display, three-finger translation, gamer mode, and the ability to change the notification tone dynamically according to how many times you’ve ignored it. Most interesting of all, for X2 users, is FlexDrop, which lets you turn apps into resizeable windows which you can place side by side. There’s even more than that, but rather than repeat it all here, why not check out our ColorOS 11 review?
OPPO warns that as part of the installation process, your device could run hot, or drain the battery faster than usual, so best to do it at the end of the day. It should right itself after a night on-charge. ColorOS 11 will arrive on other handsets during early 2021, including the Reno, F, and A series.
