Realme UI new features in the works: Ultra power saving mode, battery charging alarm, support for third-party icons, & more
Chinese smartphone OEM Realme debuted back in 2018 and since then, the company has done tremendously well to capture its fair share of the smartphone market.
The company initially focused on the Indian market and later on expanded in Europe and other Asian regions. Basically, the company’s idea of providing affordable phones has done the trick for them.
Realme also ditched its parent Oppo’s stock UI, i.e. the ColorOS, and developed Realme UI exclusive for its devices. Realme smartphones receiving Android 10 updates have also been updated from ColorOS to Realme UI.
Another important factor that has contributed to the company’s success is taking continuous feedback from its users and implementing the best ones among them. This gives the users a sense of assurance that Realme is taking note of all their complaints and suggestions.
And in line with this, started the 100 Pioneer Challenge, where Realme users can share their feature suggestions, which if deemed fit, will be implemented in Realme UI via future updates.
Recently, this challenge ended and 8 new features, as suggested by Realme users, will become a part of Realme UI for Indian users.
Notably, features like ultra power-saving mode, battery charge alarm, convert to pdf and direct print options in Gallery, WiFi Sharing with QR code, third-party icon support, revamped visuals to show battery stats, lock important notifications, and change the color of setting toggles have been accepted by Realme.
Here is a list of all the features picked up by the OEM for your reference:
