Oppo has announced the launch of the first beta of ColorOS 13 in China in a closed program. It will be available on the OnePlus 10 Pro, Oppo Find X5 and Find X5 Pro.
ColorOS 13 with Android 13, it becomes clearer. Oppo is launching a first beta program of its ColorOS 13 interface at a developer conference in China.
ColorOS 13 is compatible with the OnePlus 10 Pro and the Find X5 from Oppo
According to announcements made by OnePlus and Oppo and taken up by Gizmochina« users with a OnePlus 10 Pro, an Oppo Find X5 and a Find X5 Pro can now enroll in the ColorsOS 13 closed beta program “. We already knew that these models could benefit from the first beta of Android 13. A beta is currently not as stable as the official version of ColorOS in place and Oppo indicates that there are still many bugs. In addition, as this is a test, the actions will be recorded, which will affect the performance and autonomy of the smartphones.

However, you will not be able to download it, even if you have one of these smartphones. Oppo has set up a recruitment phase over the past two days, with 500 testers per model. In the coming days, the brand will review applications and roll out the update in batches. Anyway, this beta is currently only open to Chinese users. It is learned that international users “ will have to wait a little longer ».
Not much is known about ColorOS 13 yet, except that there will be visual improvements and new features. Nevertheless, the most interesting changes will be those that will come from Android 13.
OnePlus switches to ColorOS in China
What we can notice in this announcement is that among the list of smartphones compatible with this beta, we find a OnePlus model. Currently in China, OnePlus smartphones are gradually abandoning HydrogenOS (the equivalent of OxygenOS in the Middle Kingdom, and we are not talking about the new Asterix) for the benefit of ColorOS.
However, in the West, the OnePlus brand and its Android overlay have a stronger brand image. This is why we can think that ColorOS 13 would not arrive with us on OnePlus models. Moreover, we learned last February that the manufacturer is working on OxygenOS 13.
More and more smartphone manufacturers are deploying betas for their interfaces under Android 13. We are thinking, for example, of Samsung, which is testing One Ui 5.0 internally.
