[Update: Dec. 04] OPPO Android 11 (ColorOS 11) update tracker: Devices that have received beta/stable OS so far

OPPO-Android-11-update-ColorOS-8

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on June 30, 2020) follows:

OPPO isn’t the most prolific when it comes to rolling out timely Android OS updates. Matter of fact, the Chinese vendor is still issuing Android 10 beta updates to some of its devices in Q2 2020, yet talks of Android 11 are already doing rounds on the interwebs.

Google has already released the first public beta version of Android 11 for Pixel users and is slowly spreading this love to non-Pixel devices, but not everyone is aboard this ship.

Just like last year, though, OPPO is taking part in this year’s Android R beta testing program. The standard OPPO Reno was the only device taking part in beta testing Android Q. This year, the number has doubled, at least at the time of this writing.

OPPO-Find-X2-and-Find-X2-Pro-Android-11-update

Earlier this month, OPPO revealed that the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro will be part of the beta team testing Android 11. About two weeks later, the devices indeed picked up their first Android 11 beta update.

The expectation is that the stable OPPO Android 11 update will arrive with ColorOS 8 on top. But for now, those making the switch to Android 11 beta on the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro are getting ColorOS 7.2 on top of AOSP.

Owing to the sheer amount of customizations that OPPO will be adding on top of Android 11 AOSP, we won’t be surprised if the stable version begins rolling out late this year or even in early 2021.

But as always, we will keep an eye on the developments and update the table below with the latest news as and when any OPPO device picks up the beta or stable Android 11 update.

New updates will be added in the section below and the tracker follows after that

Update 1 (August 24)
