A month ago, OPPO started to test the ColorOS 12 update to a limited number of the OPPO Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro users. The update was based on Android 12 and was live in a few countries like Indonesia and India. One has to admit the fact that OPPO has increased the speed of pushing updates. Today, OPPO has started pushing the ColorOS 12 update for both devices. It took them a month to fix all the issues present in earlier updates. The update is limited to a smaller number of units and will be live for all units soon. The wider rollout will start only after the existing updated users give a green signal.
The Android 12 update will be the last major update for both smartphones. It was launched back in 2020 with Android 10 out of the box. OPPO has announced the details of the update through a community post. As per them, the update for OPPO Reno 3 Pro is live for the Indian and Indonesian units. In contrast, the update for OPPO Reno 3 is only live in Indonesia. Your firmware should be on C.23 on both smartphones to receive the new update. The update is also live for the Chinese units of Reno 3, and it must be running on C.14 to become eligible for the update. The Chinese Reno 3 Pro has already received a stable update.
Head to the Settings app and then to Software Updates and tap on Check for Updates for the latest update. The new update comes with the build number F.30. OPPO launched the ColorOS 12 back in November 2021. The significant changes include a new central theme and improved privacy features. It came with a new user interface and provided a cross-screen connection between your PC and mobile. OPPO also includes better battery optimization and optimization in various other areas.
