New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on January 15, 2020) follows:
More and more phone makers continue to roll out Android 10 onto their devices. Be it Samsung or OnePlus, the respective flagships already received Android 10 based skinned builds as OTA updates.
Still, a good chunk of eligible devices, especially those from OEMs that aren’t mainstream, and plenty of mid-range devices are set to get this update within the first quarter of this year.
OPPO is one such phone-maker who is a little late to the Android 10 party. The company has kickstarted the preliminary development of Android 10 for the OPPO Find X.
The phone was first released back in July 2018 with Android 8.1. It has since been updated to Android 9.0-based ColorOS 6. This time, OPPO just opened a limited run of early adopters rollout of Android 10-based ColorOS 7.
