[Updated] Oppo Reno2 F ColorOS 7 (Android 10) update early adopter recruitment begins in India

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on March 27) follows:

Android 10 operating system that came back in September 2019, is not a new thing now. Google is already prepping up for the release of the next iteration of Android OS, the Android 11 and has already pushed the Android 11 Developer Preview 2.

By this time, the Android 10 update should have been rolled out for the majority of the smartphones, but it is not the case. Brands like Oppo are yet to completely roll out the Android 10 update.

Though we cannot rule out the present scenario due to the Coronavirus outbreak, OEMs are trying their best to upgrade their phones to the latest security patches and operating systems.

In line with this, as per recent development, the ColorOS 7 (Android 10) early adopter recruitment has begun in India for the Oppo Reno2 F.

Notably, as per the revised roadmap, the ColorOS 7 (Android 10) beta update test, was scheduled to take off on March 27 for the Oppo Reno2 F and it seems like Oppo has stuck with the timeline.
