OPPO ships their smartphones with ColorOS, a custom Android skin that emphasizes on minimal UI and flat icons. The latest iteration of ColorOS, ColorOS 7, is based on Android 10 and it packs in features like a system-wide dark mode, new navigation gestures, improved Digital Wellbeing tools with Focus mode, and a revamped Camera UI. The update is already available on a number of OPPO devices, and the company had promised to bring the same to the OPPO F7 starting June 24. Staying true to their word, OPPO is now rolling out the long-anticipated update to the OPPO F7.
Tagged as software version CPH1819EX_11.F.11_2110_202006051136, the new firmware should be available across multiple African and Asian countries, including India. Those running ColorOS 6 based CPH1819EX_11.C.12/C.13/C.14 build should get the OTA prompt on their phones right away, or they can manually force the update by visiting Settings > Software Updates and clicking on Trial Version from the gear menu. Despite saying “Trial Version”, the option now leads to the stable build, thus existing beta users can seamlessly perform the transition.
With the ColorOS 7 update, owners of the OPPO F7 are now able to utilize the handy AirDrop like cross-device P2P file transfer protocol. The new build also bumps the Android security patch level to June 2020, which is certainly a big plus. Expand the following section to take a look at the complete changelog of this update.
