Realme jumped into the league of affordable high-end phones by launching the Realme X2 Pro powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus (our review) in 2019. Chinese OEMs reused the same SoC while designing this Realme X3 series, which turned out to be Effective decision to keep the price low without sacrificing raw horsepower. Realme X2 Pro was launched with ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie, while it received the Android 10 / Realme UI update a few months ago and is expected to get “early access” from Android 11 in the coming days. On the other hand, Realme X3 / X3 SuperZoom is running Android 10-based Realme UI out of the box. These three smartphones have recently received new Realme UI updates with new features and software improvements.
Realme X2 Pro’s new OTA version is RMX1931EX_11.C.31. FYI, Realme X3 and Realme X3 SuperZoom are a shared database and therefore they have uploaded an integrated firmware with build number RMX2081PU_11.A.41. These updates contain some notable changes: First, Realme finally brought these phones to Android phones in August 2020 with a new Realme UI design. Next, the company added support for auto-scrolling screenshots, “multi-user features”, and an “ultra-power saving mode” – the latter two can be accessed from the Settings app. The experimental “smooth scrolling” feature also made its way to the Realme X2 Pro with the new design.
