After months of teasing and beta testing, Realme has finally released Realme UI update to the public. The first device to get it is none other than Realme 3 Pro, which was chosen by the company initially for beta besting earlier last year. The update is being rolled out in a staged manner and hence it might take time to hit every unit.
Realme started as a sub-brand of Oppo to take on Xiaomi in India’s smartphone market. Hence, since the beginning, the brand’s phones have been using ColorOS. But in less than a year, Realme became an independent brand and revealed plans for its own UI. Since that announcement, the brand’s CEO Madhav Sheth has been teasing their UI and its features for a very long time. A couple of months back, he even confirmed that it will be based on ColorOS but will have looks close to the stock Android.
