One other good piece of news from the company is that the upcoming release of ColorOS 7 will bring a heavily requested feature: a closer-to-stock-Android user interface for this build.

Realme CEO Madhav Sheth confirmed this in a recent #AskMadhav video. ColorOS, in its current state, is heavily customized, so we definitely welcome this news.

What isn’t clear, though, is when ColorOS 7 will be available. It also isn’t clear if the user interface is based on Android 10. But when Sheth was asked about ColorOS 6.0.1 update, which is already available on the Realme XT and Realme 5, he said, “Why 6.0.1? Let’s directly roll out ColorOS 7.” The statement suggests ColorOS 7 rollout is happening soon.

Realme is expected to launch the Realme X2 Pro in India next month. Already unveiled in China less than two weeks ago, the phone is considered the brand’s first true flagship, so that might be an appropriate time to introduce a new software experience, too.
