OPPO has been among the major smartphone manufacturers that have released the new Android 13 update. While the company has not released its latest ColorOS 13 update for most phones, it has released the update for several premium phones and mid-range phones launched in 2022. The company has already rolled out the update for its latest Reno 8 series in India. Now, the Reno 7 Pro has received the new Android 13 update.
OPPO confirmed that the Reno 7 Pro India variant will receive the update from December 16. The company has also listed a few things to keep in mind before installing the new Android 13 update.
OPPO Reno 7 Pro 5G gets ColorOS 13
The OPPO Reno 7 Pro 5G joins the list of smartphones that received the ColorOS 13 update based on Android 13 within a few months of the official launch. The company confirmed that Indian Reno 7 Pro users can expect to start receiving the new update from December 16.
To check if your Reno 7 Pro has received an update, go to Settings > Software update. Once the update is available, tap download and install. Since the update is being rolled out in stages, you may not receive it on the scheduled date. We suggest waiting a few days in such a situation.

Once you have the update, wWe recommend that you back up your data before downloading and installing the update on your primary phone. This will help recover the data if there is a problem installing the update. Once the update is installed, the operating system will automatically take various actions to optimize the device, which could cause it to heat up, lag, and/or drain the battery more quickly. OPPO recommends users to turn off the screen and charge their device for a whole night after the successful update.
It’s also worth noting that some third-party apps may not be compatible with the new update, which could lead to frequent crashes or lag. It is recommended to update these apps from the App Market or Play Store for smoother operation.
The new ColorOS 13 update gets a new Aquamorphic design, which the company claims provides more fluid, natural and vivid animations. It also provides support for adding a larger folder on the home screen along with some customization options. Users can now add bitmojis in their always-on display (AoD) animations. Not just Bitmoji, as other apps like Spotify, Swiggy, and Zomato also support customization options in AoD.
The operating system also recognizes and recommends highlights from videos and allows users to export and save them to the Photos app with a single tap.
The update is also said to be more efficient than ever. For better privacy and security, OPPO has added an automatic pixelation feature for chat screenshots to hide personal and sensitive data. The ColorOS update also comes with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt all files and improve the security of private files. You can click here for the full list of features in ColorOS 13.
