OPPO Reno 8 Pro 5G ColorOS 13 Update: Here’s What’s New

OPPO is now rolling out the stable ColorOS 13 update for its current flagship phone in India, the Reno 8 Pro 5G. The update is based on Android 13. OPPO is likely to roll out the update in batches. Therefore, it is likely that the update might arrive a bit late than expected. Once the update is available for your device, you will see an OTA update notification pop up. 

To manually check if your device has received an update, you can go to Settings > Software Update. Once the update has arrived, tap on download and install. It is advised to take a backup of your data before installing the new update. We also recommend having a stable Wi-Fi connection and your device’s battery charged up to 60 per cent at least before downloading and installing the new ColorOS update.

If you have the standard Reno 8, the update will start rolling out for your device on November 18.

The new ColorOS 13 update gets a new design. OPPO’s new Aquamorphic theme claims to offer smoother, more natural and vivid animations. The new update adds a shadow-reflective clock, with shadows to simulate the orientation of the sun and moon.

OPPO also claims that ColorOS 13 is more efficient than ever. The update lets users add a large folder to the home screen. There are some personalisation improvements as well. For starters, the update brings support for Bitmoji for Always-On Display animations. The system also recognises and recommends the best moments in videos and allows you to export and save them to the Photos app with one tap.

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 for enhanced security of private files.
