OPPO Reno5 was launched in Kenya early last year and we got to review it, checking out its features including its photography performance and even putting it against its older sibling, the OPPO Reno4 in our comprehensive comparison review.
The OPPO Reno5 launched running Android 11 and ColorOS 11.
How To Get The Update
To get the update, head to Settings, and scroll to Software Update. If the update is available for your phone, a notification will pop up asking you to download and update.
ColorOS 12 brings a new inclusive UI, smoother performance, and rich features and comes packed with softer icons and animations.
ColorOS 12 ships with features from Android 12 including new quick tiles, new widgets, improved one-handed mode, notification settings, visual overhaul, and new app pairs for split-screen and privacy improvements.
OPPO adds that ColorOS 12 has an average of 30% lower memory occupation and 20% lower battery consumption.
Other features get upgraded including PC Connect, 3-Finger Translate powered by Google Lens, FlexDrop, Private System, Private Safe, App Lock, App Cloner and Phone Manager.
The OPPO Reno5 is undeniably better than its predecessor. The OPPO Reno5 has a gorgeous gradient design with starry black and fantastic silver, an impressive 64MP quad-camera set-up, robust hardware in the form of the Snapdragon 720G chip, 90Hz AMOLED display, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, stereo sound, 50W ultra-fast charging and excellent battery life.
OPPO finally nailed the hardware and software, and this synergy makes the Reno5 a truly standout choice this year.
