OPPO Is Going To Introduce Realme OS At The End Of This Year
OPPO’s sub-brand Realme CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that they are developing their own system UI. So far, the company has been using OPPO’s Color OS as their mobile system. But this does not allow it to provide some of the features that fans have been asking for.
There is currently no detailed information about Realme OS, which should be available at the end of this year or early next year. It is unclear which (if any) existing Realme phones will be updated to the system. It is reported that the operating system is based on Android Q, but Sheth did not confirm this.
Will Realme OS be closer to native Android or will it be deeply customized? In an interview in April, Sheth said ‘I believe that native Android is not the right experience’ and said that although the company’s goal is to provide the performance and long-term support of the native Android system, we also hope to have some additional features.
Realme is currently focusing on launching three 64-megapixel four-camera phones in India before Diwali (October 27). And we may see the first Realme OS-based smartphones by the end of the year or early next year. It’s less possible the company will bring this new system to the mentioned phones. But they have more chances to get updated than the current models.
By the way, the dual-brand strategy is adopted by the most of Chinese smartphone brands. Huawei did this with Honor; Xiaomi did this with Redmi; VIVO did this with iQOO. Now it’s the turn of OPPO. And we should admit Realme is doing quite well. So developing its own operating system is logical and expected.
