Color OS updates have picked up speed in recent years from Oppo, and this partnership for early Android 14 access is no surprise. Color OS 14 brings some minor visual tweaks, better privacy, performance enhancements, and a couple of other features. So, below we have a quick tutorial on how to download Android 14 on Oppo devices.
If you want to try these features early, follow the steps to update your Oppo device to Android 14. Many companies have joined the Android 14 Beta program this year. The beta program kicked off a few months ago for developers and testers, and the system is nearly at platform stability now. Companies will begin rolling out the stable Android 14 versions to their devices in the coming months.
However, if you have a compatible device, you can still try out the Android 14 Beta and experience the new features early. This guide will show you how to upgrade a compatible phone to Android 14.
Before we begin, you have to download the compatible Android 14 upgrade firmware. You can find the official Android 14 firmware for your device online once it’s available. Make sure it’s a reliable source.
