[Updated] Oppo K1 Android 10 (ColorOS 7) update status: Here's what we know so far

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

Original story (published on August 28, 2020) follows:

The Oppo K1 released back in 2018 with Android 8.1 pre-installed and has been in line to receive the update to Android 10 for a while. Matter of fact, it is one of the only devices from Oppo that is yet to receive the stable Android 10 build.

Technically, the Oppo K1 has received Android 10 but there’s a bit more to that. Therefore, we’ll be taking a look at all the details surrounding the release of Android 10 for the Oppo K1 here. Earlier, we reported that Oppo kick-started the beta for Android 10 for the device.

However, this beta recruitment was only for users in China. So Oppo K1 users outside of China were not invited to the beta party. Roughly after a month of beta testing, Oppo released the stable version of Android 10 for the device in mid-August.

Unfortunately, this too wasn’t a wide-scale rollout. Instead, only a limited number of users in China got their hands on the Android 10 update alongside the company’s custom skin over Android — ColorOS 7.

Of course, this has not gone unnoticed by users outside of China. Many Oppo K1 users have been questioning the company regarding the release of the stable Android 10 software for their devices. We’ve added some user queries posted on Twitter below:

Fortunately, Oppo has not turned a blind eye to users who are asking about the update. Instead, the company has responded to some users via the Oppo India Twitter handle. The company has sent out the same reply to many users:

Hey there, please be informed that any information regarding a new update for OPPO K1 is currently unavailable. Kindly stay tuned to our social media channels to know more regarding the same. Thank you!

While it’s good to see that the company has responded, it has not yet divulged any details regarding the arrival of the update. So the response does not change anything regarding what we know about the much-awaited Android 10 update for the Oppo K1.

The only thing that users can do is to wait until Oppo begins rolling out Android 10 (ColorOS 7) for the device. So make sure to check out our dedicated tracker to know when it arrives on your handset.
