Oppo has been pretty meticulous in the way it has handled its rollout of Android 11-based ColorOS 11 to its eligible devices, releasing monthly roadmaps of how it plans to deploy the same.
Recently, we have seen the company publishing the May 2021 version of the same with devices like the Reno2, Reno Z, A91, A5 2020, and the A73 5G set to get updated.
Keeping to its word, like we’ve seen with many other similar rollouts in the past, Oppo is now making stable Android 11-based ColorOS 11 available to users of the Reno Z.
Now, to get this update, you must be running on the latest detectable version of ColorOS, ColorOS 10 build number C.35 which will allow you to get the update to ColorOS 11 version F.02.
Also worth noting is that this initial rollout is limited to users in Saudi Arabia and the UAE (United Arab Emirates) although a wider rollout should follow pretty soon assuming there aren’t any major issues.
