Android 12 OS is now available for Kenyans’ owners of OPPO’s Reno5. OPPO began sending out Android 12 update to owners of the Reno5 and Reno6, among other device earlier this February. But the update was regional dependent, and were obviously being rolled out in batches.
Now, owners of the 1-year old device in Kenya, are now confirming the arrival of the OS for their smartphone, specifically the Reno5. Officially, both the Reno5 and the Reno5 F are available in Kenya, but it is worth nothing that this update is for the vanilla Reno5, and it is based on Android 12 with OPPO’s ColorOS 12.0
By default, you should have been notified of these update. But incase you missed the notifications, just simply head over to the Software Update section in your phone’s Settings, and trigger a new update check.
Since it is a major OS upgrade, it weighs a notable 4.77GB, so you should either be connected to a good Wi-Fi, or ensure you have enough data plan for this purpose. Also, ensure your phone’s battery is well above 50% before you hit UPDATE NOW button.
For the records, the Reno5 was initially announced on the 31st of December 2020, and journeyed down to Kenya on the 22nd of February 2021. It is actually the 4G variant of the series, and was announced along with the Reno5 F. The phone came in a 6.4-inches FHD+ screen, has Snapdragon 720G CPU, and run on Google Android 11 with ColorOS 11.1 out of the box.
