Oppo’s next custom OS version will be called ColorOS 7 and it is set to go official in China on November 20. Oppo will launch ColorOS 7 later this month and one of the phones that will receive the latest operating system will be the Reno 10X Zoom flagship. ColorOS 7 will succeed ColorOS 6 and is expected to be based on Android 10. It will bring new features such as Dark Mode for Oppo phones and improvements to the UI on a whole.
Oppo has not yet revealed what ColorOS 7 will bring to its smartphones. The ColorOS 7 launch date teaser suggests the update will improve gaming performance and offer a minimalistic UI experience. Oppo VP Brian Shen had teased last month that Oppo phones would get system-wide Dark Mode soon.
ColorOS 7 will not just be seen on Oppo phone, but on Realme phones as well. Realme started off as a sub-brand of Oppo and has since become an independant name, but still uses ColorOS on its Realme phones. Realme had previously confirmed that it was developing its own custom software skin, called RealmeOS, but it looks like we won’t see that anytime soon.
Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth recently confirmed that Realme phones will stick to ColorOS. He also revealed that Realme phones will get an exclusively customised version of ColorOS 7, which could look quite different to ColorOS 7 on Oppo phone. While Sheth has not talked about the features, it is speculated that ColorOS 7 for Realme phones will offer a near stock-Android experience similar to OxygenOS.
With ColorOS 7 set to release on November 20, you can expect Oppo to also reveal a list of phones that will get updated to the latest custom operating system soon. Realme will likely also announce its exclusive version of ColorOS 7 around the same time.
