ColorOS is a mobile operating system created by Oppo Electronics based on the Android Open Source Project.[citation needed] Initially, Realme phones used ColorOS until it was replaced by Realme UI in 2020.[1] Starting from OnePlus 9 series OnePlus will preinstall ColorOS on all smartphones that are sold in mainland China instead of HydrogenOS (Chinese version of OxygenOS).[2]

The first version of ColorOS was launched in September 2013. Oppo had released plenty of Android smartphones before then. It was not stock Android, but Oppo did not label it as ColorOS. Over the years, Oppo launched new official versions of the operating system. To make things less confusing, in 2020 the company revealed that it would adopt the same numbering scheme as mainline Android, such as ColorOS jumped from v7 to v11 with the launch of Android 11. In the future, ColorOS and OnePlus’ Oxygen OS will merge together that will appear on all OnePlus and Oppo phones.[3]
