OPPO R15 Pro/Dream Mirror Edition ColorOS 6 (Android 9 Pie) update finally goes live

Be it OxygenOS from OnePlus or Vivo’s FunTouchOS – they all have their roots in ColorOS, i.e. the skin designed by OPPO. Matter of fact, the original Chinese edition of OnePlus One came with ColorOS as the company was yet to develop HydrogenOS back then.

OPPO recently unveiled the seventh generation of their in-house Android fork, and it is manufactured on top of the foundation of Android 10. A prelim roadmap has already been shared, while current gen flagships like OPPO Reno family is already getting the update in beta form.

Realme, the sister company of OPPO, also kickstarted beta recruitment across the globe. Outside China, their phones will feature a slightly tweaked version of ColorOS 7 called Realme UI. Amidst this situation, OPPO is pushing the stable build of ColorOS 6 for a long-forgotten phone.

We are talking about OPPO R15 Dream Mirror Edition

Don’t mix it with the regular OPPO R15, which grabbed the Pie update during early September. The Dream Mirror Edition is more close to OPPO R15 Pro as both are powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC. However, the physical dimensions are little bit different.

A trial version of ColorOS 6 was made available for OPPO R15 Pro in August, but the Dream Mirror Edition is stuck with a limited soak test since June. Apparently the phone is scheduled to get ColorOS 7 during Q of 2020. Well, at least the owners can taste the sweetness of Pie before that.

Users can pre-register for the stable update

The current update is limited to the following model numbers: PAAM00 and PAAT00. Owners should install the latest Oreo firmware (PAAM00_11.A.30_0300_201910090051) before applying for the stable update.
