“The next-gen ColorOS 7 Android custom skin from OPPO is likely to run atop Android 10”
OPPO’s current Android custom skin will be superseded by ColorOS 7 on November 20th. The Chinese OEM has confirmed the date on Weibo where it posted a teaser video of the new version ColorOS. While the teaser hasn’t any detail of the ColorOS 7, it’s likely to run atop the version Android 10 mobile operating system. OPPO, meanwhile, has confirmed that it’ll start rolling out the ColorOS 7 to the Reno 10x Zoom edition soon. Furthermore, Realme’s CEO Madhav Sheth has announced the brand is working on an exclusive version of ColorOS 7 that’ll offer a near-stock Android interface.
The Realme version of the ColorOS 7 will be compatible with its own smartphones and is expected to be different than the regular version. The details about the software are vague at the moment; however, rumours are rife that the ColorOS 7 may debut with features such as Dark Mode, Focus Mode (similar to Zen Mode), an optimised Control Center or quick settings menu, and better file management features.
The successor to ColorOS 6, which was released in November last year, is also expected to come with incremental upgrades in terms of performance, camera, gaming, and security. The custom skin could even feature minimalistic UI, new font, gesture-based navigation, and fluid animations. These are mere speculations and we’d advise you to take them with a pinch of salt.

The phone will most likely be unveiled as early as in December, with a price tag of around Rs 40,000.
