In late October, OPPO ran an Android 12-based ColorOS 12 Closed Beta program for the OPPO Reno6 series in China. A month later, the company has started recruiting Open Beta testers for two models in the lineup, namely OPPO Reno6 Pro and OPPO Reno6 Pro+.
- OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G
- OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G Diwali Edition
- OPPO Reno6 Pro+ 5G
- OPPO Reno6 Pro+ 5G Detective Conan Limited Edition
In China, the recruitment for the Reno6 Pro will last until 3 PM on November 22. But unfortunately, we don’t have details for India as the announcement post was not live as of writing this article. On the other hand, the registrations for the China-exclusive Reno6 Pro+ have already ended at 4 PM on November 18.
That said, in order to enroll, users have to navigate to Settings > Software Update > Gear Icon > Apply for Beta Version > Update Beta Version and follow the on-screen instructions. In its home country, OPPO also allows applicants to fill a questionnaire to increase the chance of getting selected.
Selected applicants will receive the Android 12-based ColorOS 12 open Beat beta build via OTA. The company recommends users back up their data before upgrading to the beta software from the stable channel. As far as ColorOS 12 stable update is concerned, it will be rolled out once there are no major issues in the software.
Lastly, since the Reno series is eligible for two Android updates, the OPPO Reno6 Pro 5G and the OPPO Reno6 Pro+ 5G will be also receiving Android 13 in the future.
