Oppo officially announced the ColorOS 7 (Android 10) beta update is rolling out for the OPPO K5 users in China. According to an early report, OPPO is now pushing the Android 10 update to OPPO K5 in China from February 25.
The announcement about the beta update for OPPO K5 was made through the official ColorOS community platform. As we know, the first batch of the latest beta update is limited only to 2,000 users, and the users need to be running version A.18 on their devices to be eligible to receive the update.
It’s long time since OPPO K5 users have been waiting.
The long-awaited ColorOS 7 For OPPO K5 limited early adopter is officially open!
The number of early adopters is limited up to 2,000. Because the quality of the first adopter version needs to be continuously optimized, so the amount of early adopters is currently small. Please forgive me.
