Oppo has pretty much changed its software-philosophy after Realme proved to be a success. If in the past the company was marked by the lack of software updates for its smartphone, now it is doing a remarkable job in bringing Android 10-based ColoOS 7 for recent smartphones. The Chinese firm announced the rollout of ColorOS 7 in December last year, and it still is rolling out the update for some devices in China. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic surely delayed some of the company’s plans. Despite this, the company announced a new July update schedule for certain smartphones in China.
- Oppo R15 – July 10
- Oppo A9 – July 10
- A9X – July 10
- Oppo A3 – July 10
- A91 – July 24
- R15 Dream Mirror Edition – July 25
The ColorOS 7 update is yet to reach these smartphones in Global markets. In fact, the Oppo R15 series will get the update in July in markets like Australia, China, Europe, and India. However, the Global Oppo A91 will only receive its global update by August.
What is the big deal in ColorOS 7 update?
ColorOS 7 brings a ton of improvements for the Oppo smartphones including System-wide Dark Theme and a new Interface. Moreover, there are some improvements in security and new features for the stock camera app. It’s a massive update if you’ve been running the Pie-based ColorOS 6.x. The rollout shows how the company is changing its nature. The company wasn’t the best in providing software updates a few years ago. We can say that this abrupt change is one of the effects caused by the huge success of Realme. The company’s former subsidiary is now known as a brand that delivers good software support for its customers. As aforementioned, Realme devices are running a branch of ColorOS 7 dubbed Realme UI.
