Yesterday Google announced the official release of Android 12, and soon after, Oppo announced it will globally launch Android 12-based ColorOS 12 next week – on October 11.
That means Oppo will introduce the global ROM of ColorOS 12 next Monday, which should be slightly different from the version announced in China last month and is already available for some Chinese Oppo and OnePlus units.

Oppo hasn’t detailed the ColorOS 12 global ROM’s rollout timeline yet, but the company is accepting applications for the Find X3 Pro’s ColorOS 12 beta version in Malaysia and Indonesia.
