Realme X April update brings decimal point charging animantion, upswipe gesture indicator & bugfixes

When the Realme X2 was launched, the company not only introduced a new phone, but also introduced a new feature that shows decimal point while charging the phone.

With the help of this two-point decimal system, you could actually see your device charging in real-time. However, this feature was later removed from the devices that feature 20W and 30W chargers, due to some display issues and it was only available for phones with 50W chargers.

This two-point decimal charging system was a pretty nice feature and users were waiting when Realme will push this feature back for the compatible devices.

And if we go by recent announcement on the Realme community website, the decimal point animation has been brought back for the Realme X with the April security patchset.
