an Oppo phone has the right to it and it’s a little surprise

While we expected to first see Android 11 land on Oppo’s Find X2 range, the Reno 4 Pro 5G visibly capped them to the post. We were indeed able to download the update on a model from the editorial staff.

Between Asus and Oppo, the surprise is total. The Taiwanese manufacturer has indeed set its sights on the ZenFone 6, yet launched in June 2019, to start deploying Android 11 in a stable version. A surprising choice, since companies generally favor their most recent smartphones.

The Find X2 range will wait

On the Oppo side, astonishment is also in order, but in a somewhat different register. The Chinese brand had indeed published the list of mobile devices that will benefit first from Android 11 in beta: the Oppo Find X2, X2 Pro, X2 Lite and X2 Neo were the lucky ones. A quartet which should therefore logically welcome the next version of Android first with ColorOS 11.

Except that the Find X2 range does not seem to be the first to receive the holy grail, since the Oppo Reno 4 Pro 5G has visibly pulled the rug out from under them. A model of the editorial staff was indeed able to download this 3.2 GB upgrade, bringing with it Android 11 and ColorOS 11.

New in ColorsOS 11

This is a little twist, since this phone had never been mentioned among the first beneficiaries. After checking with an editorial colleague, the Find X2 Pro has still not received the update. Like the X2 Lite, according to a Twitter user who responded to our requests. Difficult, at the time of this writing, to make the same observation for the Find X2 and X2 Neo.

As a reminder, ColorOS 11 brings with it a RAM saving of 45%, an improvement in responsiveness of 32% and a more stable fluidity of 17%. Customizing your dark mode with several contrast levels is also possible (Enhanced, Medium and Soft).

The FlexDrop feature allows you to reduce the size of an application so that it takes up only a small portion of the screen. A way to monitor its content while using another app.
