After delivering stable Android 10 with ColorOS‌ 7 to the Reno2/Z, F11/F11 Pro, A9, and R17 last month, Oppo is now bringing the latest flavor of ColorOS‌ to the Reno 2F. In a forum post over at ColorOS‌ Community, the company has announced the stable rollout of Android 10 and ColorOS 7 for the Oppo Reno 2F.

The stable rollout follows the close beta program that Oppo kicked off in March, allowing select Reno 2F users to test drive the early software and provide their feedback to the software development team. With the stable release now rolling out to everyone, Oppo says beta participants will no longer receive any further beta builds and will be moved to the stable channel.

ColorOS‌ 7 brings a massive overhaul to the overall look and feel of the software and, as we noted in our review, looks far more aesthetically pleasing than the previous iterations of ColorOS. The update brings along a ton of new features such as new system-wide dark mode,  new navigation gestures, Smart Sidebar, a revamped camera app, optimized 3-finer screenshots, new wallpapers, new Digital Wellbeing tools and much more.

You can find the full update changelog below:
