OPPO Reno7 5G was a fantastic device at launch but lacked one feature the OPPO Reno7 4G and its other siblings had – Android 12.
OPPO Reno7 5G shipped with Android 11 and ColorOS 12 straight out of the box and we hoped OPPO would have sent the update fast enough.
The Company has now sent the Android 12 and ColorOS 12.1 update to the OPPO Reno7 5G in Kenya. It’s a big update – sitting at 1.74GB(H/T Nick Kanali on Twitter).
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.
