Realme and Oppo had separated in 2018, realme being a sub-brand of Oppo it was running on the same ColorOS which was seen on Oppo phones. Realme and Oppo have their independent audiences now, especially in India.
Realme India CEO Madhav Seth at the realme X2 launch event has confirmed that ColorOS 7 Android 10 update for realme X2 will roll out in March 2020, before China version gets it in Q2 2020.
The ColorOS is a bit too ‘colorful’ for most people, it comes with bloatware apps which really dulls down the whole experience of any UI. The new customized UI that realme would be rolling out would be as close to stock-android as it can get. It would be also including a software upgrade for a smoother experience altogether.
The following is the timeline for the same-
- 27th November to 3rd December 2019 — realme X2 Pro beta recruitment application starts (Also available for beta testers from realme X2 Pro and Project X)
- 9th December — Final list of the Beta testers selected will be announced
- 18th December 2019 to February 2020 — Beta testing will be conducted for approximately 2 months
- March 2020 — Stable roll out begins
realme said that information and feedback will be collected from the ColorOS 7 Beta program to further enhance the user interface experience better.
Confirmed realme smartphones that will be receiving the update of realme UI based ColorOS 7.0 Android 10 update:
- realme XT
- realme 3 Pro
- realme X
- realme 5 Pro
- realme X2
- realme X2 Pro
- realme 3
- realme 3i
- realme 5
- realme 5s
- realme 2 Pro
- realme C2
Realme would be ever the more independent by all means with their new Realme UI, and the Chinese brands are often lacking at the software front regarding the excessive bloatware, which sometimes comes off as a cheap ploy. The Android 10 based update sure would be a sign of improvement granted that it also significantly improves the performance of the already loaded realme phones.
