OPPO has a lot of smartphones in its portfolio. The company offers devices that range from budget to mid-range to flagships and even gaming devices. 

Moreover, OPPO has been able to grab the slice of the piece of the pie, in this competitive smartphone market. But, when it comes to the speedy delivery of updates, the company does not hold a special place in the smartphone ecosystem.

Besides, we have reported previously that up till now, only the Reno series smartphones are slated to receive the Android 10 update. Seems like the brand needs to pull up its sleeve it wants to compete in today’s smartphone world.
