Realme 5 Pro & Realme XT first updates bring September security patch & camera improvements
Realme has already pushed the latest September security patches to a number of its devices not just in India, but also in its home country of China.
We first reported about Realme September security patches a week ago, but this was for the Realme X Lite. For the uninitiated, the Realme X Lite is the same device you know as the Realme 3 Pro.
The new patch hasn’t crossed over to the global Realme 3 Pro, but as you wait for it to arrive, you may want to check out the new dark mode that is part of the company’s mysterious Project X. If this is a new song to your ears, well, Project X has been largely associated with the rumored RealmeOS.
Realme has also released September security patches to the standard Realme 5 and Realme 2 Pro and now joining the party are the superior Realme 5 Pro and Realme XT, two phones that are still very new on the market.
The Realme 5 Pro started selling earlier this month and the incoming update becomes the first-ever OTA for the device. It is arriving as version RMX1971_11_A.09 and it has more than just the new security patch, as seen below.
● Improved system stability
● Improved sharpness of the rear main camera
Packing a 48MP quad-lens camera on the rear, the Realme 5 Pro is receiving an update that further improves the sharpness of photos captured using this shooter, so be sure to grab to improve on the quality of photography out of the box.
Similarly, the Realme XT update, which is arriving as version RMX1921EX_11_A.10, not only installs the September patch, but also tags along a couple or so camera improvements.
– Improved the quality of photos
– Improved the performance when camera previews.
– Android Security Patch Level: September 5 2019
Of course, both Realme 5 Pro and Realme XT September security patches are based on Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.0.1 running on top. But as usual with OTA updates, it will take a wait of several days before all units receive the download notification.
Also, Realme has yet to add these two devices on to its official software support page for India, so we still don’t have access to the firmware requires for a manual upgrade. The page should be updated in the coming days, though.
