Oppo K3, R17 Pro & A3s get September security updates

Android 10 is officially available and there is a race among the OEMs to push out Android 10 firmware updates for their compatible devices. Moreover, there is a lot of reason to be excited as Android 10 packs in enhanced security and also gives a lot of customization options.

Oppo is a new player which has gained its slice of the pie in today’s competitive smartphone market. The company offers numerous devices ranging from budget to flagships to even gaming devices.

However, Oppo is not known specifically for timely delivery or its speedy update cycle. Besides, it was reported that the Oppo Reno phones are the ones (for now) to get the Android 10 updates. 

Cut to now, the company has rolled out September security updates for three of its devices i.e. Oppo K3, R17 Pro and A3s. Moreover, there is more to the update than just the security patches for all the devices. Let us talk about each update received on the devices, one-by-one.

The update for the Oppo K3 brings in the Digital Wellbeing and Parental Function as an addon with the September security patch update. It carries the version number A.03 and weighs in 2.8GB in size. Below is the official changelog and the screenshot for it:
