For the last few months, Oppo has been aggressively pushing the Android 12 update for its smartphone, even though the Android 13 is just months away from its official rollout. Last month, the company started rolling Android 12 beta on the aforementioned smartphones.
As a part of new features, Android 12 brings customisable UI and other tweaks like three-finger translation, FlexDrop, Private System, and enhanced security. For instance, the phones now give green or orange indicators at the top right when apps are using the front camera and microphone respectively. These indicators were first rolled out by Apple on iOS for iPhones.
