OPPO R15 is getting the ColorOS 7 stable update with Android 10

In the previous months, we saw a lot of oppo devices were getting the Android 10 based color os 7 update via OTA. Oppo published a new roadmap for devices which will receive color os 7 in the coming weeks. Oppo announced this roadmap via Tweet on July 1st,2020.

According to the roadmap, the OPPO R15 should receive the ColorOS 7 update starting from July 10th, while its “Pro” variant is scheduled to get the update from July 28th. Two more devices, the OPPO F15 and the OPPO A91 will also get their Android 10 updates in this month.
Staying true to its promise, Oppo started rolling out the update to the Oppo R15 from yesterday. Oppo R15 came bundled with colour os 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo and it is powered by Mediatek Helio P60 processor. It is quite surprising that Oppo is giving the Second Major Update to this device.
Oppo also held a public beta for this device in June but now everyone including the beta testers are going to receive the update with build CPH1819EX_11.F.12 via OTA. This update is said to be rolling out for users in Australia but you can expect Global Rollout within next week.
