Realme did a stellar job last year with the introduction of its Realme UI 1.0. Unfortunately, nowadays that company has hundreds of devices to take care of and this is clearly slowing the Realme UI 2.0 update rollout. Still, some lucky smartphone owners are already enjoying Android 11 with the company’s new set of improvements. Among a few select flagship smartphones, we have the Realme 7 Pro which received a stable Realme UI 2.0 update a couple of weeks ago. Now, the device is receiving a new incremental upgrade with bug fixes and May 2021 security patch. It’s good to see that the company is still managing to roll out these incremental security patches.
In addition to the newer security patch, the update also comes to enhance the smartphone’s overall performance and stability. As far as security patches are concerned, they’re well known for addressing certain vulnerabilities within the software. Google is constantly monitoring the vulnerabilities of its Android core and is patching them. Now, Realme 7 Pro has the latest batch of improvements made by the search giant.
Gizchina News of the week
Worth noting that the new firmware is rolling out in batches. Therefore, you may take a couple of hours or even days to receive this update. For now, it is rolling out for a small portion of users. After this initial rollout, the company plans for a broader rollout. We assume that the update will take a few days to reach all eligible units across the world. Aside from the security patch and performance and stability improvements, the RMX2170_11._C.21 update does not bring anything new. For that reason, it weighs less than 17MB.
The update is currently rolling for the units in India, but we should see it reaching global units throughout this week. If you didn’t receive the notification, you can manually check the status by navigating to settings >> System >> Updates. If the update appears, you can click on Download and Install.
The Realme 7 Pro is still alive and kicking in 2021
The Realme 7 Pro was unveiled in Q3 2020 and brought huge improvements for the company’s numbered series. The smartphone has the very same chip as its predecessor (Snapdragon 720G) but introduced an AMOLED display with a UD fingerprint scanner. This panel also has FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The device draws power from a 4,500mAh battery that charges via a super-fast 65W fast charging. For some users, the Realme 8 Pro isn’t a big upgrade over the 7 Pro. The newer smartphone once again has the Snapdragon 720G but has a standard 60 Hz refresh rate. The only big advancement is the 108MP camera, but not everyone will care about that.
