Oppo has been busy with the Android 10 (ColorOS 7) update and most of the eligible devices have already bagged it. However, Oppo Reno 5G was due to get the latest stable update in June. We reported earlier that devices including the Oppo F15, R15 and more got the beta update back in June.
The stable Android 10-based ColorOS 7 version came out for the Oppo R15, R15 Pro, and F15 later in July. Nevertheless, many devices are yet to receive the latest update and Oppo intends to remain on top of its game.
Now, the Android 10 (ColorOS 7) stable update is rolling out for Oppo Reno 5G. The new update brings major changes to the device that include the Navigation Gesture 3.0, Dark mode, and much more.
