Android 11 is here, the 18th version and the 11th major release in the Android OS family has finally arrived. With this, the quest for releasing the latest Android version to their devices has started among the OEMs. Last year, the smartphone makers like Oneplus, Essential Phone, along with a handful of OEMs, were the only ones to release the latest Android beta for their device before anyone else.
And it looks, this year, Oneplus’s sister company, Oppo, will be a part of the elite group. Oppo has announced that its flagship range, Find X series, will be getting Android 11 beta update. Even the update has begun to roll out some eligible devices.
The Chinese smartphone maker has also announced the new version of its UX skin. Oppo’s in-house made ColorOS User Interface is getting a refreshing look, topped up with fantastic features like customized Dark-mode, new Gestures, Super-power saving mode, new All-on-display feature, and a lot more.
Along with a new look, the OEM has also overhauled the branding a bit. FYI, the previous version was called ColorOS 7, whereas the successor is named as ColorOS 11. No hidden easter eggs here; this is done because ColorOS 11 is based on the latest Android version, i.e., Android 11. Thus to maintain the parity, ColorOS 7 jumps directly to ColorOS 11.
Well, if you own an Oppo device and are excited about the new ColorOS 11, you are in the right place. Here, in this post, we will be mentioning the eligible devices for the new ColorOS 11 along with the rollout-schedule, which has been officially announced by Oppo.
