Recently, Oppo started sharing the ColorOS 12 Beta and official version plans for the second quarter of 2022. According to the roadmap, four Oppo handsets are set to receive the Android 12-based ColorOS 12 Update through the Beta Program. The four devices to receive the Beta Program are Oppo F19, Oppo F19s, Oppo A74, and Oppo A95. As this is still a Beta Update, the interested users need to apply for the program to test Android 12 on their Oppo devices. There is a limited quota of 5,000 users for each device. This essentially means that just 5,000 users will be able to apply for the program with the last date of joining being April 8th.
Oppo starts recruitment for ColorOS 12 Beta Program
The ColorOS 12 Beta Program for Oppo F19 and F19s has been started in India while the Beta Program for Oppo A74 and A95 has gone live in Indonesia. If you’re an Oppo A95 user and you want to participate in the ColorOS 12 Beta Program, then your device should run on A.09 while for the other three devices, the required version will be A.23.
