Realme has started to push its version of Android 11 to the 7 Pro. However, Indian users in this OS' early access program appear to be the only ones eligible to receive it thus far. The update contains a number of new features, including system optimizations, extra security features and camera options.

The 7 Pro is a Snapdragon 720G-powered, 65-watt (W) charging phone that launched running Realme UI based on Android 10. Now, however, its maker has announced an update to the latest version (2.0) of its software. This new, 3.57GB-sized OTA contains numerous features of this new interface.

They include access to HeyTap Cloud, a new service that allows the user to back their data up for easy porting to a new Realme phone. 7 Pro users with this update can also "clone" their systems for different user accounts that unlock with different fingerprints. 

The Realme 7 Pro on UI 2.0 can also access new system options, including a three-stage dark mode, optimized auto-brightness, automatic do-not-disurb settings and the ability to "drag" data from one app to another in split-screen mode.

The phone's new camera app now offers grid and level options while recording video, improved stablity while zooming and new direct shortcuts to edit and share options. Then again, this build of Realme UI 2.0 for the 7 Pro is still an early access build, and has met with some reports of instability from some users already.
