The Realme 2 Pro is still expected to be updated to Android 10 at some point, this time with the new Realme UI on board. This will be the second OS upgrade for the handset.

Although the system-wide dark mode feature is widely associated with the update to Android 10 OS, the Realme 2 Pro and a bunch of other Realme phones got it late last year even before the official Realme Android 10 roadmap came out.

The device is also in line to receive swipe (from left and right) gestures when Realme UI arrives.
