Realme is now the fastest-growing smartphone brand in India and now is aiming to have double-digit smartphone share in the country. The Oppo sub-brand has seen substantial growth in just a year, launching a wide range of devices in India, from ultra-low budget to mid-range.
Oppo and Realme separated within months of its establishment giving it more freedom to work for the youth-specific consumers. Oppo has seen huge growth in revenue by applying a two brand strategy, Realme focussing on quality budget devices and Oppo setting new benchmarks in the premium segment of smartphones.
Recently, Realme has achieved 17 million consumers globally in such a short span of time. Although two of the brands work separate but still Realme borrows a lot of resources from its parent brand Oppo, a major one being the OS i.e. the ColorOS.
We had some reports and leaks suggesting that the brand is working on developing its own RealmeOS. Also, reports came out that the name was also been trademarked which hinted a possibility of a new custom OS by Realme for its wide amount of youth fans.
Madhav Seth, CEO of Realme Mobiles India hinted to bring a new OS which will be close to stock Android experience which he did try in the last update by adding a stock Android like app tray to the Color OS 6 for Realme devices.
When the company announced a closed beta testing for the Realme 3 Pro users in India everyone supposed it to be the RealmeOS. But now with the confirmation from the CEO himself, no signs of RealmeOS but yes, like in past, Realme smartphones will feature a custom ColorOS 7.
This new OS has been confirmed to be similar to the stock Android in terms of the user interface which is a huge demand from its fans which Madhav himself admits. No other information has been shared by the CEO as for now but ColorOS 7 will surely be based on the latest Android 10.
In the AskMadhav Q&A session, he also confirmed that the company’s smartphones with quad-camera setup namely, Realme 5, 5 Pro and XT will get video recording support with the ultra-wide camera lens. Madhav also hinted that its own Realme Fitness Tracker will also be launched soon in India, might be in November when the flagship Realme X2 Pro is making its way to India.
Oppo’s ColorOS 7 will also feature on Oppo devices and among them, OPPO Reno 10X Zoom will be the first one getting the latest ColorOS 7. In an official statement, Oppo’s Vice President confirmed this and also confirmed the existence of the ColorOS 7.
