Realme’s ColorOS 7-based interface will be called Realme UI; here’s the roadmap for the update

On: November 25, 2019

Realme launched the Realme X2 Pro on November 20th in India. On the same day, OPPO announced the latest iteration of its in-house Android skin dubbed ColorOS 7 in China. As it turns out, Realme is leaving no stone unturned to provide its users with the latest software experience. Today, the company has revealed the roadmap for its own customised UI, which will be based on ColosOS 7 and Android 10. On the sidelines, we spotted a blog post on the Realme Community which reveals that the new interface will be called “Realme UI”. The upcoming Realme UI will start hitting Realme devices from January 2020. Realme XT users will be able to access the update earlier by signing up for ColorOS 7 beta programs, starting from November 27th. Additionally, some beta testers of the Realme X2 Pro and Realme XT who have participated in the ColorOS 6.7 program will also be eligible to test Realme UI starting December 18th.

As seen in the image, the Realme 3 Pro and Realme XT devices will get the update in January 2020. The Realme X and Realme 5 Pro will be next in line, with the update rolling out in February 2020. Post that, the recently launched (and the current flagship of the company), Realme X2 Pro will receive the update in March 2020. The relatively old Realme 3 and Realme 3i devices will have to wait a little longer, and will receive the update in May 2020. The Realme 2 Pro is set to get the update in June 2020. Finally, the budget Realme C2 will get the update in Q3, 2020, although the brand has not yet specified the month.

As far as the features of the upcoming Realme UI are concerned, we are going to get a near-stock Android experience. Furthermore, the update will feature all the new features from ColorOS 7, including system upgradation, smoother gaming graphics, better RAM management, customisable app icons and fonts, and a system-wide dark mode.

As far as the Android 10 rollout schedule for Realme devices is concerned, the following is the official timeline:

Phase 1 (Jan-March, 2020)

  • Realme 3 Pro
  • Realme 5 Pro
  • Realme X
  • Realme XT

Phase 2 (April-June, 2020)

As of now, this is all we know about the upcoming Realme UI, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.
