Unfortunately, not every smartphone that gets released will get the latest software. There are still tons of handsets out in the market or owned by users that still run Jellybean. For Oppo’s Find 5 and N1, the thought of them getting upgraded to Kitkat was thrown out the window when the company reported themselves that they would not update the two handsets. Now new information suggest that Oppo will indeed upgrade the Find 5 and the N1 to Kitkat and with the latest Color OS 2.0. For users of those two devices, the hope may be alive although there should always be some sort of solace found in knowing that a ROM might cure what ails you.

In the comments, a user complained about how his Find 5 will never get Color OS 2.0. In response, Oppo Commented back saying, “We have plans for a KitKat based Color OS 2.0 for both the Find 5 and N1. Please stay tuned for more news on this in the near future.” So for many Find 5 users that are upset about how their device won’t be getting an upgrade, the time is finally here. Oppo will update these later generations with Color OS 2.0 which is their newest Android skin and it will be based on Kitkat 4.4.
It’s great to see the Find 5 get upgraded to the latest software available by Android. The Find 5 was Oppo’s flagship device before the FInd 7 came to life. This news is exciting for many Find 5 fans who may have been frustrated with Oppo because they said they didn’t have plans to update. Now that the company confirms an update, Find 5 and N1 users can experience the all new Color OS 2.0 and the joys of Kitkat. The comment made by Oppo on their Google+ page is the only information provided by the company that their will be an update. Further details of the subject have not surfaced. According to Oppo, more news will be revealed in the future, so all we have to do is sit and wait to see what the company has in store for everyone next.
