OPPO recruits beta testers for ColorOS 7 and Android 10 update for the Find X, R17 and R17 Pro
Late last year at an event in New Delhi, OPPO unveiled the latest version of its custom skin, ColorOS 7, based on Android 10. At the launch event, the company also revealed the list of devices it had planned to update to ColorOS 7. In December, we saw the company rolling out a beta version of Android 10 to the global variant of the Oppo F11 and OPPO F11 Pro. Now, the company has started recruiting beta testers for more Oppo devices in India including the Find X series and R17 series.
Here’s a list of all OPPO phones which are receiving or have already received a closed beta of ColorOS 7:
- Reno 10X Zoom
- Reno 2
- F11 Pro
- R17 Pro
- Find X
- Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition
- Find X SuperVOOC Edition
OPPO says the trial version of Android 10-based ColorOS 7 will be limited to 2000 applicants per phone on a first come first serve basis on the Find X, R17, and R17 Pro. This Beta program is inviting users in India and Indonesia for the Find X, India and Australia for R17, and India, Indonesia, and Thailand for the Oppo R17 Pro, Users willing to participate and test drive the early software can head to their device settings and apply for the beta program. To participate, head over to Settings > Software Update and tap Trial Version. From there, tap on “Apply Now” and check for system update; if there’s quota available, you should receive the update prompt.
Since this is a closed beta build, there will likely be a number of bugs and other issues in the software that needs to be worked out. Waiting for the stable release is recommended if you value stability over cutting edge features. Oppo hasn’t revealed when it plans to roll out the stable version to these smartphones. But given that beta testing is already underway, hopefully, users won’t have to wait too long.
