realme ui latest update

A little while ago, Realme announced the roadmap for the Android 10 update for its devices during the Realme XT launch event. Even before that, the rumors surrounding a potential Realme OS had already started popping up on the internet. This, however, was later debunked by Realme’s very own Madhav Sheth who confirmed that the Realme devices will still run on Color OS only and will receive the recently announced ColorOS 7 update in times to come. Turns out that all the strings are now tied and we will indeed be getting a ColorOS 7 + Android 10 based skin for the Realme devices, but it will be somewhat customized. And, the latest post on the Realme community suggests that the upcoming OS will be dubbed Realme UI. As a matter of fact, Realme has officially announced the roadmap for the update as well.

Realme 5 and the recently launched Realme 5s will get the same in May 2020.

Even the old Realme 2 Pro and the budget Realme C2 are listed as the candidates that are going to get the latest update. While the Realme 2 Pro is set to get it in the month of June next year, the company has so far not revealed an exact month for the rollout. Nevertheless, the Realme C2 will be getting the update sometime in Q3, 2020.

This, however, should not stop the beta testers from getting to enjoy the latest update. Realme has already confirmed the rollout schedule for the Realme XT and Realme X2 Pro. The testing phase is set for around 2 months starting from December 18 and will end somewhere in the month of February.

The Beta testers from Realme X2 Pro, Project X and realme XT ColorOS 6.7 Beta, who have proven themselves to be valuable beta testers will also be given chance to try their hands on ColorOS 7 Beta testing. The final list of the Beta testers selected will be announced on 9th December. The work on Beta testing will be conducted for approximately 2 months starting from 18th December 2019 to February 2020. Information and feedback will be collected from the ColorOS 7 Beta program to further enhance the user interface experience better.
