Not only this, we reported yesterday the hands-on images leak of Realme XT running Android 10 as the company unveiled the latest ColorOS 7 for its devices.
Moreover, the company has also shared the ColorOS 7 timeline in a conference held in Beijing. Below is the image shared by Realme in its community platform.
The important point to note is that all the Realme models will be updated to ColorOS 7. Looking at the image above, the Realme X and X Lite (aka Realme 3 Pro) is slated to receive the ColorOS 7 in Q2 2020, while the Realme Q (aka Realme 5 Pro) will get the update in Q3 2020 and the Realme X2 (aka Realme XT) and X2 Pro will be served with ColorOS 7 in Q4 2020.
In fact, back in September, the company shared its Android 10/Q timeline that included only 8 devices, while the rollout was slated to begin in Q1 2020.
Fast forward to October, the company also came up with the ColorOS 7 roadmap in China and kickstarted its beta program at the beginning of November ahead of ColorOS 7 (Android 10) update.
The new ColorOS 7 roadmap which was recently shared seems pretty different from what was shared back in October (above image). We will keep you in loop once we have more information in this regard.
