OPPO is planning to upgrade its devices to Android 14 as soon as Google publicly launches the new mobile operating system. The smartphone company has been pretty steady when it comes to timely Android upgrades and monthly security patches sent to its midrange and flagship lineup.
The company is now promising that some of them will get Android 14. The OS is still in its beta program and will launch in a few months as it gets into its platform stability stage on its roadmap.
The previous rollout has seen the final version roll out in late August or early September.
Android 14 brings features like a customizable lock screen, new gesture navigation tutorials, a clock shortcut in the notification shade, new Material Design 3 toggles, new Material You icons and colour palette, a prominent charging indicator on the status bar, customizable emoji wallpapers, AI-generated wallpapers, a delightful user switching animation, a new mouse cursor, Health Connector now becoming a system app, new ANGLE layer, new toggles for Bluetooth stylus devices, Battery health indicator, and more.
These are the devices slated for Android 14 and ColorOS 14 updates:
- OPPO Find X5[Full Review] and Find X5 Pro
- OPPO Find X3 Pro
- OPPO Reno8 5G[Full Review], Reno8 T[Full Review], Reno8 Pro
- OPPO Reno7 5G[Full Review] and OPPO Reno7 4G[Full Review]
- OPPO A98
- OPPO A78
- OPPO A77
- OPPO A57
The company recently launched the new Find N2 Flip in the Kenyan market. It came at a time when Samsung was the only one selling a clamshell foldable format smartphone with the Z Flip4. We’re expecting the Z Flip5 later next month during Galaxy Unpacked 2023.
Foldables aside, OPPO is planning to bring the new Reno10 to the country next month. Reno10 will feature a curved 6.7-inch AMOLED screen powered by Snapdragon 778G chipset coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
We’ll see a 64MP primary with a 32MP telephoto(2x Zoom) and an 8MP ultrawide camera. It’ll have a 32MP front-facing camera.
It will ship with Android 13 but we expect it’ll be the first to get Android 14 as well.
