The company will review the entry and after application success, the build will hit your device within 3 working days. In case the application quota is already full, please wait for the next round (if there’s any). Also, the selected users are expected to report the bugs in the ColorOS community or contact the customer service center directly.
As this is a beta version, the package will not be as smooth as a stable build. In fact, it may carry a lot of bugs and some third-party apps might not work as well. Therefore, we do not recommend you flash it on your primary phone. An already known issue quoted by the company is the AOD of Music display malfunction. Lasty, do not forget to take a backup of your data before testing the beta version.
