Oppo Android 12 (ColorOS 12) Update Tracker | Supported Device List | Release Date

Updates are being continuously added on top of the page…

OPPO Android 12-based ColorOS 12 is Official

Update as of September After a lot of waiting, it is here. I am talking about ColorOS 12 from Oppo powered by Android 12 and it brings a lot on the table. ColorOS UI has seen a lot of polish in the last two years and with OnePlus’s OxygenOS merger, the list of features will only grow. The COlorOS 12 is refined albeit not a massive upgrade over Android 11.

Oppo says it has improved more than 300 animations w.r.t. ColorOS 12 to bring it closer to reality. This includes updated but subtle system icons, lower information density on the display, and Omoji, Oppo’s avatar emoji feature. It uses a 3D-based model with over 20,000 unique markers to create 3D avatars for photos and video calls among other features. 

Oppo’s ColorOS 12 will pair with Windows 10 (mainstream brands in a limited fashion until a global ColorOS 12 releases) with ease thanks to the Cross-Screen Interconnection feature. This is where you will get all the notifications on your laptop, edit documents, share files, and more without touching the phone. Floating windows have improved as well with the ability to resize the screen from mini to small to a full-screen window. 

The Smart Sidebar 2.0 looks and works similar to Samsung’s Edge Panels offering tools and actions that are based contextually on what you are doing on the phone. Next up, Car Screen Projection is a feature that works like Android Auto Wireless offering access to AutoNavi, Kuwo, Ximalaya, and others in China since ColorOS 12 is currently available in China only.

ColorOS 12 brings an anti-stuttering AI engine that will effectively prevent the phones from slowing down to a degree of just 5 percent less performance after 3 years of usage as per Oppo. Android 12 features including privacy indicators, permission management and others are also a part of ColorOS 12. Turns out Oppo has plans to roll out ColorOS 12 to 110+ models with over 150 million units worldwide. 


Oppo has improved its software update program immensely in recent times. Last year we saw the company being part of Google’s Android 11 beta program. They launched the beta version of Android 11 for their smartphones when Google was also working with beta builds in their Pixel lineup. And when the stable build of Android 11 was released last year, Oppo was quick to react to it, and they updated many of their smartphones to the latest version of Android.

Now Android 11 is no longer the latest version of Android. In February, Google released the developer preview build of Android 12 for their pixel lineup, specifically to allow app developers to work on their apps and make them compatible for the next version of Android. It will start pushing out the beta builds of Android 12 in the Q2 of 2021, and that is when companies like Oppo, Xiaomi, Realme, and more are expected to join in on the action.

Oppo Android 12 Update tracker:

Oppo was one of the first OEMs last year to launch Android 11 updates for their smartphones. This time around, too, we can expect something similar from them. They will probably include their latest flagship X series devices in the beta program. And when the stable build of Android releases, Oppo will start working on providing that update to the same X series devices.

Recently there was a new development regarding the Android 12 update for the Oppo Find X3 Pro. Google recently announced that the Oppo Find X3 Pro would be one of the few devices that will participate in the Android 12 Developer Preview Program. It was the only Oppo device on the list, though. Eventually, it will also be the first Oppo device to receive the Android 12 beta update. For app developers who have the Oppo Find X3 Pro, this is definitely a piece of good news.

Device List:

The company does not have any set plan for providing Android updates. But based on previous year patterns, we can deduce Oppo to provide at least two major Android OS updates for all of their smartphones. From their flagship Find X series smartphones and Reno series smartphones to the budget segment K series smartphones. Every one of those receives at least two major Android OS updates usually. Some exceptions received only a single Android OS update, but most Oppo devices receive two major OS updates. So any Oppo smartphone that came with Android 11 out of the box will definitely receive the Android 12 update. As for the devices that came with Android 10 out of the box, all of them might not get the Android 12 update. So based on the pattern and history, we have compiled a list of Oppo smartphones eligible for the Android 12 update.
