From the above list, the only device we can confirm 100% is available, at least on an official basis, in the Kenyan market and whose users are assured of getting the ColorOS 12 update, is the Oppo Reno6 5G (look out for our review in a few days). While we have had the Reno3, Reno4 and several A series smartphones from Oppo available in the local market, the Reno6 is the first 5G device from the company to go on sale in Kenya officially.

We expect changes to the above timeline over the next few days as new information becomes available so, fingers crossed that your device makes it.
