For a long time, software updates were considered a weak point of Chinese and other phone makers. This changed in 2022 for Oppo as well as Samsung and other major companies. The BBK-owned Chinese brand already has updated a number of smartphones in China and other markets only a few months after Color OS 13’s debut.
As we prepare to enter 2023 the brand has revealed the Color OS 13 update schedule for the first quarter. Here are the details.
Oppo will release stable and beta versions of Android 13-based ColorOS 13 to a large number of smartphones in Q1 2023. The Oppo Reno 7 5G and Oppo K9s will be the first to receive the beta update. The update is only for the Chinese region, but the global rollout timeline should be revealed soon.
Here is the comprehensive list of beta and stable roll outs for Oppo phones in China.

As mentioned earlier, the global rollout will be announced within a day. But since Oppo has been highly efficient with its Color OS 13 rollout, it will not take long before the update arrives in the global market after China. It should become available in Pakistan as soon as the international rollout begins.
Note that the devices mentioned above are only the first handsets that will get the update. It will reach older and cheaper phones gradually overtime.
For the oppo upgrade. Those who spent a lot in the country for the oppo smartphone will get the upgrade first. I received my upgrade in the last 10 days of December 2022. Take care. Bye 👋👋😎
