The Chinese tech company via its Twitter account has confirmed that Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro users in India are also getting the latest software update starting Wednesday. The development comes days after Oppo released ColorOS 7 rollout roadmap for smartphones in India that includes the Oppo F9 series, Oppo F7, Oppo A5 2020, and more.

According to the changelog shared on Oppo community page, the ColorOS 7 update comes with the build number CPH1823EX_11.F.09_2090_202006051759.
