- The Realme UI brings Android 10 onboard the Realme 3 Pro
- There are new additions like Focus Mode, better camera and more
- Realme was using Oppo's ColorOS until now
Over the past year, Realme has grown in leaps and bounds owing to its launches in the budget segment and the mid-range segment. Because of the introduction of phones like the Realme 5 Pro, the Realme X2 and others, the brand has made its position in the market and has put itself on the map. But, until now, Realme was not using its own custom UI, which is something that every big brand in India does. While Xiaomi has its MIUI, OnePlus has its OxygenOS, Realme was still using the ColorOS which Oppo’s UI, given that Realme was a brand that branched out of Oppo. But, now this is all set to change with the first view of the Realme UI. Earlier this month, Realme launched a preview of the Realme UI and in the same view gave us a hint about the Realme Buds Air Neo. We also got to know the features of the Realme UI and the devices in which it would make its place first. One of the devices was the Realme 3 Pro, which has now become the first device to get the Realme UI update based on Android 10.
