If you are the owner of the Realme XT smartphone then, this piece of news might excite you as there is a new update available for the device. It brings in the latest December security patchset along with the major improvements.
Realme has had quite an eventful year as they become one of the top smartphone brands in India, thanks to its Realme 5 series.
Moreover, the company also took some important steps in delivering the latest security and firmware based updates for all of its devices. To recall, we have earlier reported that other Realme devices like Realme 1/U1 along with Realme 3 Pro have already grabbed the December security update.
Matter of fact, the PiunikaWeb readers must have also come across a report where we shared the hands-on photos of Realme XT running Android 10.
Realme also unveiled the official ColorOS 7 roadmap for its portfolio of devices, and according to it, Realme XT will be served with ColorOS 7 starting from Q3 2020.
Now coming back to the update received on the Realme XT smartphone, it arrives with the version number A.14 and weighs in around 2.8 GB in size.
The update is not purely incremental in nature as along with the latest patchset, it also adds some features like fast switch toggles, nightscape for the camera, font change support in Theme Store, and some bug fixes for animations.
Interestingly, we have reported back in August about the font change support that was touted to be included in the future versions of the ColorOS UI of Realme.
