Oppo F15 has finally started receiving Android 11-based ColorOS 11.1 after some beta tests were successfully conducted. Oppo F15 was released in India in January 2020 where it came equipped with Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6. This update makes it the second big major OS update for the mid-range smartphone. According to Oppo, the smartphone was supposed to receive the software update on March 17 but some users have already started getting the update on their devices ahead of schedule.
According to tweets by users, initially spotted by PiunikaWeb, Oppo has released a stable version of ColorOS 11.1 to select Oppo F15 smartphones with the firmware version CPH2001_11_F.10. Earlier this month, the company had announced the ColorOS 11.1 update rollout for the Oppo F15 would begin from March 17, and so we can expect a wider rollout in the next few days.
