“RealmeOS will have features and improvements the company’s fans have been asking for, according the brand’s India head Madhav Sheth”
RealmeOS was first reported to be in the making earlier this year thanks to trademark listings and UKIPO patents. The company even announced the Realme Project X beta testing program recently, without naming RealmeOS. Now, putting an end to speculations, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth, speaking to India Today at the company’s 64MP quad-camera technology event, confirmed the brand is indeed working on its custom skin. However, the CEO didn’t reveal any details. RealmeOS would soon replace OPPO’s ColorOS, with the India head of the brand saying that it’s working with the R&D team to offer features that are highly requested by fans.
The Realme Project X beta testing requires users to test the upcoming software build and offer feedback. RealmeOS is also believed to be based on Android Q and is expected to release later this year right after Google releases the stable Android Q software. As mentioned previously, the company also filed a trademark application for RealmeOS in the UK earlier this year.
Despite Realme started off an OPPO subsidiary, it’s moving away from OPPO’s nest. This makes perfect sense for the company to have its skin of Android, instead of relying on OPPO for software development. Unfortunately, though, there’s nothing we so far know about the OS and its features, but there’s a possibility that it could draw some inspiration from ColorOS. We should learn more information going forward.
Separately, Realme has announced its 64MP camera phone will be launching in India before Diwali. The smartphone will have quad rear cameras and will feature Samsung’s latest 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. It captures images with 16MP resolution in low-light conditions and 64MP in a bright environment. The sensor uses pixel-merging Tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm.
