Oppo unveils Color OS 11 based on Android 11 globally null

Last week, Google finally made Android 11 officially available on smartphones, with Pixels getting the upgrade already. Soon after, Android OEMs joined the fray with beta offerings of their own. Starting today, Color OS 11 will be available for certain Oppo phones in open beta. Here’s everything new it brings to the table.

Oppo unveiled the Color OS 11 globally, directly jumping from Color OS 7 which was based on Android 10. The company states that this was done to have parity with Google so that users would know which version of Android they are currently on. This was also the fastest Android upgrade from Oppo to date, beating last year’s 83 days with a hefty margin. With over 370 million Color OS users across the world, the company targets covering more than 28 models in its beta program.
