[Update 2: ColorOS 7 beta recruitment for Realme X2 Pro] Realme announces its Android 10 update roadmap for the Realme X series
Realme is treading with a fast pace, especially when it comes to launching new devices. Earlier this month, they launched their first true flagship, the Realme X2 Pro, with Snapdragon 855+, 50W SuperVOOC charging, 64MP quad cameras, and so many other exciting features. At the same event in Madrid, Spain, the company also launched the Realme X2, which is the Realme XT but with faster 30W charging and a Snapdragon 730G for better performance, and the Realme Q (Realme 5 Pro in India). But one aspect of Realme phones that has left user expectations sore is the software and the company is now working to bring the experience closer to stock Android with ColorOS 7.
In the meantime, Realme is also working on making Android 10 available to the users and had earlier announced its timeline for the update for several older devices. They have now announced the Android 10 roll-out schedule for newer devices including the Realme X2 Pro and the Realme X2. As per the update, Realme X2 Pro will start receiving the Color OS 7 update based on Android 10 in the second quarter of 2020.
Notably, the schedule for the roll-out is for Chinese variants of the smartphones so we expect the global roll-out to come in the weeks following the initial updates. Realme should reveal dates for the Indian variants while launching the phone next month.
Update 1: Realme’s ColorOS 7 & Android 10 update schedules for Realme 3 Pro, XT, X2 Pro, others
Realme has updated the ColorOS 7 update schedule for India with a month-wise breakdown. In India, Realme will release a custom UI based on ColorOS 7 based on Android 10. This echoes their promise of bringing a UI closer to stock Android but we’re not sure of the exact changes yet. OPPO is set to announce ColorOS 6 in India on November 26, 2019, which is when we might get to learn more about this customized UI.
