OPPO is bringing the Android 11 beta to the Find X2 series this month
After months of Android 11 Developer Preview releases, the first Android 11 Beta is here. The Beta is different from the Developer Preview releases because it’s intended more for enthusiast consumers, not just developers. The Beta should be more reliable and it’s also going to be available on non-Pixel phones. A few of the first phones to get it will be the OPPO Find X2 series this month.
OPPO is pleased to announce that the Android 11 Beta will be coming to the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro this month. The company was a part of the Android Q Beta last year, so it may come as no surprise to see them take part in it again. OPPO has confirmed that the Beta will come with the ColorOS user interface on top. Regardless, it’s always great to see OEMs participate in these programs to give users an early look at the next version of Android.
The key themes that Google is focusing on with Android 11 are People, Controls, and Privacy. We’ve been following these themes throughout the Developer Preview period, but the features may be new to you if you haven’t been keeping up. You can read our in-depth coverage of the first beta release, but here’s a quick rundown of the highlights:
- “Conversations” section in the notifications
- Bubbles notifications
- Consolidated Keyboard Suggestions
- On-device visual cortex for voice commands
- Smart Home controls in the Power Menu
- Redesigned media controls
- One-Time permissions
- Permissions Auto-Reset
This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what Android 11 brings to the table. We’ll continue to dive into the update to find more. OPPO Find X2 and Find X2 Pro users can look forward to trying out these things for themselves soon.
