Realme unveiled the GT Neo2, the phone will be available next week and will run Realme UI 2.0 out of the box. That is the brand’s Android 11-based software, version 3.0 will be based on Android 12 instead.
The new version will bring a renewed interface and will increase security and privacy. Next month Realme will announce a time line for updating its current models to the new version of its custom user interface.
What will that UI look like? The work to unify ColorOS and OxygenOS has already started with the Android 12 versions coming from Oppo and OnePlus, so this will likely affect Realme UI 3.0 as well.
The unification will be complete with the Android 13 version, which will leave Realme with a choice – keep maintaining a separate branch or switch over to the unified OS as well. OnePlus is getting a custom version of said OS, Realme could get one as well to help it maintain a separate identity and to better serve its target audience.
In June, the company announced its 1+5 + T strategy; according to which the core of the business is the production of smartphones; and computers, tablets, TVs, smartwatches and wireless headphones will become the five main related products. All of this will be integrated into TechLife, the so-called the ecosystem of the “Internet of Everything”.
