Oppo Reno3 Pro ColorOS 7 Developer Beta program kick-starts

The Oppo Reno3 Pro is one of the latest mid-range smartphones from the company. It released in March this year and comes with a decent set of specifications. Being a newer device, it also has Android 10 pre-installed alongside ColorOS 7.

This is the latest skin from Oppo and it brings a host of new features and refinements over ColorOS 6/6.1. Recently, we reported that the rollout for ColorOS 7 had been affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But it seems that Oppo is ready to move forward with the next step. The company has now officially kick-started the ColorOS 7 Development program for the Oppo Reno3 Pro. This program is live for users in India and Indonesia at the moment.


Bear in mind that the Oppo Reno3 Pro already comes with ColorOS 7 out of the box. Thus, this new Developer Program is meant for testing new features and improvements that can be brought forward.

Users must be on either of the following software versions to take part in the beta testing: CPH2035PU_11.A.19_0191_202006190208 or CPH2035PU_11.A.19_0190_202006190208. If you’re running on a version lower than these two, you may not be able to get into the Developer Beta.
