Realme 2 Pro₹ 15,990, one of the company’s latest smartphones in India, will soon receive an OTA update. With an aim to compete with companies such as Xiaomi and Huawei, Realme was spun off from Oppo earlier this year. The brand has since launched four smartphones – Realme 1₹ 9,749, Realme 2₹ 8,990, Realme C1, and Realme 2 Pro – in the market. The Realme 2 Pro, which was launched in the country last month, is set to receive an important software update. The company CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the over-the-air (OTA) update will be rolling out in less than a week. The CEO has also noted that the company is working on bringing the ColorOS 5.2 update to the Realme 1.
Realme CEO Madhav Seth, in a post on Twitter, said that the company will roll out a new software update to the Realme 2 Pro in less than a week. He added that the OTA update will come with improvements to the selfie camera and battery while gaming. Madhav had posted the tweet on Saturday informing users that the update will be rolled out in a week’s time. This essentially means that Realme 2 Pro users should get the update by the end of this week.
In the same tweet, the Realme CEO also informed that the company is working on bringing the ColorOS 5.2 update to Realme 1, which was the first smartphone from the brand. He wrote, “RM1 color os 5.2 update we are trying to line up immediately after this update.” Interestingly, Realme 2 Pro was the first handset to come with ColorOS 5.2.
