Oppo is a Chinese company that makes some very popular smartphones. Granted that most of the company’s products don’t ever see the world outside the Great Wall but some of its flagships have been sold in other countries and they have been well received. The company said in August that one of its old flagships, the Oppo Find 5, will not receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update. That announcement certainly left many users disappointed. Well now they can get their hopes up again as Oppo seems to have backtracked on that decision.
That’s not all. The company also confirmed that the Oppo N1 is going to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update as well. Oppo made these confirmations on its official Google+ page where it replied to comments about Find 5 not being eligible for the KitKat update.
Android 4.4 KitKat is Google’s latest iteration of its mobile platform. It brings a couple of new features apart from subtle changes for the user interface. However it will soon be eclipsed by Android L which Google showed off back at I/O 2014 and is going to be released in the next couple of months.
Oppo Find 5 and Oppo N1 will receive Android 4.4 KitKat through Oppo’s ColorOS 2.0 update which is based on KitKat. The company hasn’t revealed exactly when the update will be pushed out but says it will land on these devices “in the near future.”
