Mobile manufacturers make decisions all the time that affect their position in the market, both for themselves and in relation to their competitors. These decisions sometimes concern software and Android many of these decisions are about diapers, like the one Realme also uses.
Despite the fact that Realme and OPPO insist on denying their relationship, the truth is that it does exist and is demonstrated to some extent with the use of ColorOS by Realme in its first steps in the market. Later, the company opted to begin development of one layer, Realme UI, which is already in its second iteration, but now they seem to be considering coming back
The return to ColorOS is on the table
Realme UI saw the light of day in 2019 and a year later in September 2020 Realme UI 2.0 was officially released but its distribution seems to have been somewhat chaotic lately. Perhaps this is the situation that led the company to ask its users (and anyone who wants to respond) would be your future favorite customization layer for Android, Realme UI
In a bizarre survey curated by the brand, Realme is asking its users about various related questions about layers of personalization for Android. It asks, for example, which layer is your favorite in a list where ColorOS and Realme UI are, logically, but also others like MIUI, One UI or OxygenOS, layers of Xiaomi, Samsung and OnePlus
The last question in the survey, however, is the most revealing as Realme sets out to ask its users to choose between two possible names when returning to ColorOS, which seems to have already been decided at this point. In the survey the simple use of ColorOS or ColorOS by Realme is envisaged, in the same way that ColorOS by OnePlus is used for OnePlus sold in China (Poco also does this with MIUI by Poco, for example).
So, maybe we are seeing the moment when Realme decides to go back and revert to ColorOS, OPPO’s proprietary layer which is still used in some OnePlus models, and which could be used in models from now on. from Realme. A curious and lasting decision that, if taken, we trust the brand to explain it.
