[Beta recruitment] ColorOS 7 will come with loads of new software features, elaborates Realme

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Being an open source software, Android is free for any manufacturer to use and redistribute (the trademark is exclusive to Google and the vendors have to license it under individual contracts, though). So, the companies can transform the platform into the way they like.

All the leading OEMs have their own Android overlays. Samsung has OneUI whereas OnePlus phones run on OxygenOS. Huawei devices flaunts heavily skinned EMUI. MIUI is Xiaomi’s Android theme. And, what Oppo touts is ColorOS.


ColorOS is laboriously-transformed-version of Android with features that stock OS lacks. Moreover, it helps them achieve a unique appearance that makes it stand out from the rest. However, there are many who just loathe heavy skins and love the stock version.

Oppo-spinoff Realme also uses ColorOS. Although a standalone skin has been in talks for months, nothing went official until now. The latest version available on the handsets is ColorOS 6, based on Android Pie. Owing to the release of Android 10, the brand is planning the next iteration.
