The updates of smartphones, not only related to security patches but real firmware upgrades, are always a burning and delicate theme able to ignite the soul of the most peaceful technological user. Often some mobile phone manufacturers also play on this factor, releasing far too many updates and fixes, putting in a bad light companies that instead prefer to give away firmware rollouts only if necessary. On the other hand, if a system is well calibrated and reliable, is it really essential to update?
Having said that, I expect your opinions from you in the comments box below, but we come to the news that interests OPPO smartphone lovers, which has just published the updated roadmap relating to the upgrade to the new ColorOS 7, software interface presented by the company last November.
The update began to peep out on some models starting from January but following the recent epidemics due to the Coronovirus that shook the whole of China, the ColorOS 7 development team experienced a setback, therefore leaving users waiting for the coveted update with bated breath. Fortunately things are starting to turn again and OPPO through a press release on Weibo, has confirmed the new roadmap relating to the updates that will come and that will bring ColorOS 7 on the brand's devices.

We reiterate that what was planned by the company in November was completely disrupted, given that the general activities of each company slowed down if not stopped. So let's find out the updated list of OPPO devices that will receive the new ColorOS 7 and when the rollout will begin for them.
For convenience we report the table in the image in text form with model and release date:

- Reno 2Z - by March 31st
For models whose release had already started in January, the roll out will resume on the date reported in the document. The table refers to ColorOS 7 in China therefore for Global models the wait is even longer, probably from mid-April onwards, but of course we are waiting for more details from OPPO.
