Tada! The wait will finally be over in the coming week. Oppo F9 and F9 Pro users have been gawking the arrival of the Android 10-based ColorOS 7 since it was announced that the device will pick up the beta in the month of April.

However, a couple of weeks back, the OEM revealed that the update had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic circumstances. Then just yesterday, we highlighted that Oppo F9 & F9 Pro will get the Android 10 beta either by the end of April or somewhere in May beginning as was revealed by a ColorOS forums moderator.


Well, the OEM didn’t take long to come up with a concrete date of arrival, as just a few hours later, incoming is the good news that the first batch of ColorOS 7 beta/trial update for the Oppo F9 & F9 Pro will be initiated next week, i.e. on April 30. Following that, the second batch is planned for the middle of the next month.
