“Madhav Sheth also noted that all the Realme phones would get an exclusive version of ColorOS 7 with a near-stock Android interface”
Realme, within a short span, has found its way up to become the fourth-largest smartphone brand in India. The company expanded its portfolio with accessories such as earphones, power banks, tote bags. Now, Realme seems to be venturing into the wearable market to take on its rival — the Mi Band. In a #AskMadhav episode, the company’s CEO, Madhav Sheth, hinted that Realme would be foraying into the segment soon. There’s a good chance the Realme fitness band might debut alongside the Realme X2 Pro on November 20th. Unfortunately, the executive didn’t divulge into any technical details about the fitness band just yet.
Furthermore, Madhav also teased the launch of VOOC-fast charging PowerBanks in the future. Apart from the fitness tracker and new power banks, when asked about ColorOS 6.0.1 update, Sheth said that the brand would roll out ColorOS 7.0 directly, and this likely should be based on Android 10. When asked about RealmeOS that was confirmed to be in the works a while ago, the executive noted that all the Realme phones would get an exclusive version of ColorOS 7 with a near-stock Android interface.
Sheth also confirmed that wide-angle video recording support for Realme 5, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme XT would be rolled out through an update before the end of November. However, Realme 5 Pro has received the update recently. Realme XT will be available offline in limited stock and is planning on expanding the availability in the next few weeks. Lastly, the Realme executive clarified that Realme C1 and Realme 2 wouldn’t get Cam2API because of hardware limitations.
