Realme makes good value for money hardware but are usually panned by enthusiasts for their software. The company has identified that flaw, however, and is set to shake things up by adopting a new skin said to be similar to stock Android.

OPPO launched the Realme brand last year as a high-value option for the Asian and European markets. Since then Realme has done extremely well, breaking into the top ten smartphones global ranking, and offering stiff competition to other high-value brands like Xiaomi's Redmi.

While Realme makes great hardware, especially for the money, like most other Chinese OEMs, its software is far from popular with the Western crowd. Thankfully, the company looks to be set to shake things up. 

According to Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth, the company's devices will jump to ColorOS 7.0 directly from the current ColorOS 6.0, skipping all the incremental versions between. Realme phones will adopt an all-new exclusive form of ColorOS, designed to be quite similar to stock Android. 

Such a move would immediately put Realme on the maps of Android enthusiasts worldwide, as the phones are usually panned for the less than optimal skin they ship with. In fact, OPPO's ColorOS is generally regarded as one of the worst OEM skins.

The CEO also confirmed that a future update will bring ultrawide video recording to phones like the Realme 5, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme XT.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
