Oppo had announced the Oppo A12 back in April and now the brand has started rolling out a new update for the device carrying the version number CPH2083_11_A.35. The latest update brings the July 2020 security patch and bug fixes for the device.
This is a stable build and not a beta, and hence so we recommend users to update their device to this build as soon as possible. The update is based on Android 9.0 Pie and is being rolled out for the Redmi 7. Similar to all the other updates, this OTA update is rolling out in Europe exclusively over the air. This is a planned rollout so it may take some time to be available in all handsets.
For changes, The update brings software optimization and promises to provide a better user experience. Along with all the optimizations, it also improves the security and performance of the device while bumping up the software version. It also addresses many bugs which were reported in the previous build.
As usual, users should ensure that they back up their data before attempting the download. Also, this update will not arrive on all units at the same time. Thus, if you have not gotten this update, just exercise some patience. Alternatively, you can go to settings to check for available updates manually.
Changelog for Oppo A12 CPH2083_11_A.35
- Integrates July 2020 security patch
The Oppo A12 is the next budget entrant in the list and the phone comes with a 6.22-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch and a resolution of 1520×720. It also has Gorilla Glass 3 protection atop the display. The dimensions of the phone are 155.9×75.5×8.3mm and weight is 165g. It has a diamond finish on the back housing a dual-camera setup and a fingerprint sensor.
The Oppo A12 is powered by the Mediatek Helio P35 which is an Octa-core CPU along with POWERVR GE8320 for handling the graphic duties. The optics of the phone include a 13MP f/2.2 primary camera and a 2MP f/2.4 which on our guess will likely be a depth sensor. There is a single LED flash at the bottom of the setup. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie snapper.
Apart from this, the phone will have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Micro-SD card expandable upto 256GB for storage expansion, 4G voLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and GPS for connectivity. The device comes with two storage variants- 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The software side of things isn’t very interesting as the listing on the official website; shows a ColorOS 6.1 that indicates the phone will come with Android 9 out of the box. Additional features include a Riding mode, Smart Assistant and a Dirac for audio enhancements
