[Updated] Realme X2 Pro August update for global units adds DC dimming, smooth scrolling & more; Realme X50 Pro/Player Edition gets it too
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from Aug 25) follows:
The Realme X2 Pro launched with Android 9 Pie and has since then picked up the update to Android 10 alongside Realme UI. The company’s custom skin resembles Stock Android more than the previous ColorOS skin. Although, it retains most of the features offered by ColorOS.
Moreover, the Realme has released the Android 9 Pie rollback package for the Realme X2 Pro as well. Thus, if users preferred the ColorOS experience, they can opt to downgrade to Android 9 Pie. That being said, the global units of the device are getting a new update.
Previously, we had reported that the Chinese variants of the Realme X2 Pro were picking up the August security update with new features and bug fixes as version RMX1931_11_C.28. Now it appears that the global units are also receiving the same update, albeit with some changes to the release notes.
This new software update is rolling out as version RMX1931EX_11_C.31 for the Realme X2 Pro and it brings the August 2020 security patch to the device. But that’s not all since there are a bunch of new features, optimizations, and fixes that are also part of the update. We’ve added the changelog below:
