Oppo released stable Android 12 & ColorOS 12 update for Oppo A55 and A16



OPPO released stable Android 12-based ColorOS 12 stable for two more smartphones: Oppo A55 and A16. A couple of days ago, the same update released for Reno7 Z and F21 Pro.

OPPO users and fans of the brand are almost certainly aware of the two channels usually used for the release of updates – the Stable and the Open Beta – but next to these, there is also a third: the early access Test channel is the most exclusive of all and the one to receive the latest news before any other, as long as you are willing to endure some inevitable extra bugs.

After updating to the latest ColorOS 12 version, the operating system will do several actions to optimize your device automatically.
