Realme started as an OPPO sub-brand but the company separated from the parent company to operate independently soon after its establishment. Realme Smartphones has now established presence in several regions launching operations from Sub-Continent. This Chinese smartphone maker has proved its mettle in the budget and mid-range segment.
While being an independent company, Realme uses a lot of OPPO services to keep its operations going. One of them is ColorOS, a Chinese smartphone maker’s custom Android skin OPPO, which Realme also uses.
Leaks have been making rounds about Realme working on its own Android-based operating system called RealmeOS, which will look very similar to the Android stock. When a closed beta test for Realme 3 Pro users were revealed by the developer, it was believed to be for the upcoming RealmeOS.
However, if you believe the latest information coming from Madhav Sheth, CEO of Realme India, then the RealmeOS will not come. Alternatively, with the upcoming major release — ColorOS 7, the company will get its own ColorOS branch.
He also stated in the same AskMadhav Q&A session that the company’s quad-camera smartphones — Realme 5, 5 Pro, and XT will receive support for video recording with the ultra-wide camera lens. He also indicated that the Realme Fitness Tracker would soon be introduced in Sub-continent like Pakistan and India.
Coming to the upcoming ColorOS 7, the custom user interface is currently known. OPPO Vice President recently confirmed, however, that the OPPO Reno 10X Zoom will receive the ColorOS 7, which was also the Chinese company’s first official confirmation of ColorOS 7’s life.
