Right on schedule, Realme has begun the rollout of Android 10 update with the company’s new Realme UI for the Realme X and the Realme 5 Pro. Back in January, the company rolled out the same update for the Realme 3 Pro and the Realme XT.
Apart from bringing the new Android 10 features, users will also get the new Realme UI. It is pretty much similar to Oppo’s new ColorOS 7 when it comes to design and functionality. But the good thing is that the new UI is close to stock Android, which is a good thing.
The company says that while the roll-out for both the phones has begun, it will be in a staged manner. This means that it will be pushed for a limited number of users, and eventually reach a larger number of users once the company is sure that there are no major issues with the update.
The new update brings an optimized Smart Sidebar feature, two new features for Assistive Ball, bubbles, optimized three-finger screenshot, Focus Mode, new wallpapers and live wallpapers, and more. The Realme Share app is also added to support the sharing of files with Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi devices.
