Got the update in the UK but I had to apply it manually. Was lucky enough to get the ota file through my job but unfortunately I'm not allowed to share it here. Android 12 seems really polished on the x3 pro.

That's a shame as technically it's still not out in the UK then :/ .

If your job roles with Oppo do they have any idea when it's supposedly gonna drop in the UK? As I'm now 2 months out of date or aren't you allowed to share anything like that ? :( Still stuck on A.26

Really going to contemplate the S22 Ultra seems as they are jibbing of Exynos over in the UK this time as they've got Android 12 as do Sony handsets and that is saying something 😂

Wouldn't mind if it was because of a Network vendor but it's unlocked

I don't work for Oppo sorry. It's worth the wait. This build is so polished and for some reason the battery is better!

I know you can't share the file for the job's policies, but I have a question for you.

How is it possible that you got this kind of beta testing version while the beta testers time is closed from a while?
Are them working seriously like that? They are releasing the update for lower specs phone and plenty of X3 Pro are still waiting for the Update.

This is the way on how to lose customers.

This isn't a beta version. It's a final version that needs to undergo network testing in the UK. I work for a mobile network so I have access to the software.

You have the C.41 version. If I remember rightly, the first coloros 12 released in Europe was the C.37. Few days after was released the C.39 version.
I think that C.41(yours) is the last version, currently non available by ota because in test.

Any idea on a timescale that the testing is likely to take before release or how long it normally takes?

It's annoying as my phone's unlocked but still uses CPW (Carphone Warehouse firmware) the same way my X2 pro did.

But the Engineer codes became available then a tool was made to be able to flash and change your region, it worked well too.

Bugs the ar*e off me that the phone it's unlocked, dual SIM'D and for the UK technically locked 🙄💩

Should be running the "Global" version, definitely frustrating when much much lesser Shamsung phones are getting A12 :/ (know that's not your fault mate!) ☺️

    👍 I may return with future update news going forward for those who would welcome it, but meh... If I do, I'm not correcting heresay or stupid, I'm not going to dignify petulant rants with a response.
    My source is not just a customer service rep or a Twitter bot, it's from the team developing these updates.
    I forgot how tedious it was to be part of the tech community.

    I find it really amazing how much one or the other complains and complains as if their life depends on this update. Constructive criticism makes sense, but switching this talk to another manufacturer is annoying. Just do it and keep quiet because nobody wants to know.
    Well people have the freedom to express their views, experiences and compare to other manufacturers.

    It's not the end of the world no, however it's also not acceptable when A. Said company says they will deliver a patch/security patch each month for their flagship only to drop the ball neigh on immediately and make cr*p excuses as to why and B. When they are lagging behind other manufacturers I mean Sony & Samsung have gotten theirs out to flagships and mid range phones.

    Yet here some of us are 2 months+ out of date.

    I complain a lot because I paid a LOT for the phone and those updates were promised until it magically disappeared and that effected the decision making for the purchase.

    I use my handset for everything including my workplace (I work in IT) and due to the data we store/access the devices local storage need to be encrypted as well as being up to date on Security patched too, not 2, 3, 4 months out of date :/ .

    That's why I'm vocal about it, I don't and didn't need to explain myself but chose to so I don't come across as being one of these uncompramising, keyboard warriors 😂.

    But at the end of the day I've paid a lot for the device, part of the marketing/site info was clearly not true and that would have potentially Influenced that, same with them also disappearing the LTPO part of the Screen section 😅.

    Ontop of that I'm expecting these patches to fix known bugs and irritating issues, but in the meantime having to just deal with them.

    I do really like the phone the camera's are amazing next to none! UI feels great, feature set is great along with the charging speeds and how nice the Phone feels and looks physically.

    So it's a shame that they are dropping the ball and just vaguely saying eventually it will come when other manufacturers are already there.

    They want to charge a premium and compete with other premium manufacturers like Samsung etc then they need to be justifying and earning that premium cash, competing on all fronts including software development, patches and OS updates.

    So what you're saying is that the OTA files exist and Oppo doesn't want anyone getting their hands on it? Btw would you be able to post the full file name by any chance I may have an Idea thanks
    File is CPH2173_11_C_OTA_1410_all_ad8023_10001010

    What I am saying is this version is in testing. As you will see the number is quite ahead of the version that's gone live in other markets. It may fail testing and require another build.

    I would be breaking the terms of my employment by sharing so I don't want to share until official. As soon as I get the go ahead will share google drive link here.

    I'm back with some vague news.
    The rollout is / was delayed due to "stability issues" & GUI needed some minor tweaks.
    Apparently areas of Guangdong / Shenzhen have been put into rolling lockdowns recently that may further hamper their progress.
    Was unable to get any clarification on what this means in an ETA for us, but I've been assured it's a number 1 priority.
