Which Oppo phones will get Android 10?
Oppo has remained tight-lighted on its Android 10 update schedule so far. Having already received the Android 10 beta, we know that the Oppo Reno will be set for the full upgrade soon.
On top of that, the second generation of Oppo Reno phones is expected to arrive very soon, and we’d strongly expect these to either ship with Android 10 or else receive the update shortly afterwards… but that’s all the info we’ve got so far.
We certainly hope that pricey handsets such as the Oppo Find X and Oppo RX17 Pro are in line for the update too, but we’ve received no confirmation of this yet. Oppo has a vast stable of devices that varies from country to country, so the scheduled rollout is likely to be a complicated and possibly protracted affair.
