Theme Store, as one can guess from the name itself will provide Realme users some fancy themes and wallpapers for their phones. Theme Store was part of Color OS 5 on Realme 1 phones, but somehow didn’t make to next in line devices.

Back then, Theme Store on Realme 1 offered free as well as paid themes and wallpapers, and changing the theme also changed the app icon layout, lockscreen wallpaper as well as the system font.

And now, as per the company’s latest announcement, this feature will be making way to all Realme devices soon.

Madhav as usual took to Twitter to share with Real me users that while the latest 3 Pro and its kin Realme 3 will get Theme Store in next month’s update, Realme C2 will be shipped with the same.

Coming to the older devices, they also added that earlier Realme phones, that is, Realme 1, 2, 2 Pro, C1 and U1 are due to receive the Theme Store update with Android Pie which will be in form of an OTA.

So those of you who have been waiting for Realme to bring back the Theme Store, you’ll get to see it soon.

As for when exactly will Android Pie based Color OS 6.0 be pushed to Realme phones, there’s still time. Just in case you aren’t aware, the company first announced that Pie will be rolling out to Realme devices in the first or second quarter of this year.
