Realme has revealed more information about its upcoming update, the Realme UI that is built with user feedback in mind. Realme UI is still based on Oppo's ColorOS 7 and offers features such as Personal Information Protection, Smart Gestures, Dual Earphone Connection, and more. Realme has also detailed the timeline for the rollout of the new update.

Last year, Realme hinted that it would be launching its own version of Android based on community feedback. We also saw the company show off some aspects of the new UI during the Realme X50 launch. Now, the former Oppo subsidiary has detailed some more information about its new OS, Realme UI.

Fans have been requesting Realme to offer a near-stock Android experience as ColorOS was way too bloated. It looks like Realme did take some cues from stock Android, but the new UI seems to be very reminiscent of Oppo's latest ColorOS 7 based on Android 10. Realme UI features a revamped icon set and implements an updated quantum animation engine for smoother transitions and visuals. 

Notable new features include a Focus Mode, Smart Gestures, native Dark Mode, Dual Earphone Connection, Personal Information Protection, and more. The Personal Information Protection is a neat feature to trick apps that request personal information with blank data. Dual Earphone Connection enables using Bluetooth and wired headphones at the same time, which is a real boon for those who want to share their listening with their partner. 

The timeline for various Realme devices to get updated to Realme UI is as follows:

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
