This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (published on September 08, 2020) follows:
The upcoming release of Android 11 is all the rage right now in the Android community. In line with that, we have seen a decent number of OEMs taking a headstart in the development of their respective skinned versions of Android 11.
OnePlus, Xiaomi, Samsung all have relatively active developments of their Android 11 skins, all in a bid to be able to roll out Android 11 to their eligible devices before the year comes to a close.
Launched back in March 2020, the Oppo Find X2 and the X2 Pro ran on the very latest and highest-end chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 865 with up to 12GB RAM and equally high-end internals. The devices ran Android 10 out of the box with the company’s ColorOS 7.1 on top.
The device is eligible for an update to Android 11 and already, we have seen reports of rather active development in that from.
Today, Oppo is seeking to further expand its Android 11 testing for the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro by inviting users in more regions.
Reports coming in indicate that Oppo is recruiting Beta testers who would like to take Android 11 out for a spin on their Oppo Find X2 and Find X2 Pro before the official release.
The invitation is going out to users of the two devices in Thailand, India, and Indonesia. This initial recruitment targets 2000 users in the said regions. To apply, users first need to confirm that their phones have been updated to the versions CPH2023PU_11.A.39. Thereafter, follow the following steps.
– Click ‘Settings‘>>‘Software Update’>> Click the settings icon on the screen>> Apply for Beta Version>>Update Beta Version.
– Follow the guide to apply. （If the application quota is full, please wait for the next round.）
It is refreshing to see OEM, especially these Chinese phone-makers having an early start to the development of Android 11. This could mean that Android 11 will be rolled out to eligible devices much faster than earlier versions, but even that remains to be seen.
To recall, we have recently seen Oppo confirm that these two devices would get updated to ColorOS 7.2 and in line with that, we’ve seen the global beta program of the same.
