The company starts rolling out a firmware update for its Realme 5S, Realme 5i, and Realme 5 smartphones. The update comes with the firmware version RMX1911EX_11.C.59 on all the three smartphones featuring October security patch. Earlier, in June 2020 Realme 5, 5S, and 5i received the Android 10 based Realme UI update.
However, the new C.59 update brings overall improvement in the system performance and optimization. It also includes the latest Android security patch for the month of October 2020. According to release bulletin, the Android October security patch resolves 27 issues ranging from moderate to critical. The latest security update fixes issues with the media framework, Google Play system and Qualcomm components of Android smartphones. If left unfixe, these vulnerabilities could have enabled a hacker to execute arbitrary code on Android smartphones.
“The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in the Media framework component that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process,” Google wrote in its Android security bulletin page.
The update changelog remains same for Realme 5, Realme 5S, and Realme 5i. We have listed the full changelog of RMX1911EX_11.C.59 update below:
