Realme teases the new Realme UI based on Android 10, reveals update schedule
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:
- Realme XT and Realme 3 Pro - Jan. 2020
- Realme X and Realme 5 Pro - Feb. 2020
- Realme X2 and Realme X2 Pro - Mar. 2020
- Realme 2 Pro, Realme 3, and Realme 3i - Apr. 2020
- Realme 5, 5s, and 5i - May 2020
- Realme C2 - Q3 2020
