Here’s the First Look at Android 10-based ColorOS 7 Running on the Realme X2 Pro

ColorOS 7 Realme

It’s been not too long since OPPO showcased its new Android 10 based operating system —  ColorOS 7. The company, in fact, had organized a huge launch event in India for its official launch just last month. At the event, OPPO had laid out the rollout schedule for ColorOS 7 for most of its phones. Among the devices slated to get the official nod to ColorOS 7 included several phones from OPPO’s sub-brand Realme. At the launch event, OPPO had revealed that the Realme X2 Pro would get the official update to ColorOS 7 by March 2020, and by the looks of it, the company is on track to deliver on this promise. If you recall, just days after the ColorOS India launch event, Realme officially rolled out the ColorOS 7 Beta Program for all Realme X2 Pro users. Anyway, the reason you are reading about ColorOS 7 and the Realme X2 Pro is because of a recent video posted to Weibo. The video provides a glimpse of ColorOS 7 in action on the X2 Pro.

What is interesting about the video is that it shows the first glance of the changes to ColorOS 7 that would set Realme phones apart from other OPPO handsets. The Weibo video description talks about the refined animations that seem to be tailored for the 90Hz display in he Realme X2 Pro. The combination of the refined animations combines with the high refresh rate display should ensure a much better user experience.

Another key takeaway from the video is that the software has started to resemble the stock Android UI. This move should please most Android purists out there. ColorOS fans need not worry as almost all the features that make ColorOS stand out from stock Android shall be retained. That being said, do note that we are still in the early stages of the development of this Android 10-based ColorOS 7, and there is a good chance that some of these UI elements could change by the time the final version of the OS is released in March.
