When buying a new smartphone, a theme that is certainly close to the heart is that of updates by the brand as well as those related to the safety of the device through an injection of patches released by Google itself. Among the brands that are providing evidence of attention to this theme, we find OPPO which recently provided for the release of an update relating to its glorious OPPO F11, effectively updating the security patches in August 2021, even before the Google Pixel series smartphones.
Oppo F11 is, in fact, the first smartphone to receive the August 2021 patches, becoming the reference point for monthly updates on tech security. The update is already available in Asia and can be downloaded via OTA, which if you have not yet received it, you can try to force by manually searching for the update through the appropriate section in the update menu.
Unfortunately, the version of the operating system remains unchanged, anchoring to Android 11 (ColorOS 11.1).

The international version of the firmware is the CPH1911_11_F.16 and will continue to reach the OPPO F11 marketed on the Asian market.
