Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update brings Pseudo Base Station Blocking feature for protection from fraudulent messages & ads
Realme UI 2.0 preview update is out for Realme X50 Pro and the stable version will start rolling out to several devices from November.
Realme’s parent company, Oppo, is also preparing its ColorOS 11 update and we saw glimpses of both custom skins earlier in the month.
Also, Realme even discussed the third-patry app issues present on the Realme UI 2.0 update while also addressing several features requests.
The launch event of Realme Narzo 20 series was held pretty recently where the features of Realme UI 2.0 were also detailed. More on that here.
However, there is one feature from Oppo’s ColorOS that was missing when Realme UI first came out with Android 10 i.e. Pseudo Base Station Blocking.
The Android 10-based ColorOS 6.7 beta update included this feature which blocks imposter base stations disguised as base stations of actual mobile network carriers.
Theoretically, this feature should protect devices from connecting to malicious cellular base stations rather than connect to an actual mobile carrier.
Realme introduced the Realme UI custom skin with the Android 10 update and the Pseudo Base Station Blocking feature was not included in it.
Now, the feature has been re-introduced with the Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update and a bunch of devices will eventually get the Pseudo Base Station Blocking support with the latest custom skin.
The OEM has updated the official Narzo 20 Pro page with the details of Pseudo Base Station Blocking stating that the feature will prevent fraudulent messages and advertisements.
Pseudo Base Station Blocking: realme UI 2.0 can help to recognize pseudo base stations and protect you from fraudulent messages and advertisements.
This clearly indicates that Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) is indeed a major update and the OEM is hell bent on providing the best user experience along with it.
While the early access for Realme X50 Pro will start from tomorrow, a detailed roadmap of the Realme UI 2.0 early access rollout can be found here.
That said, we will provide more updates once new information becomes available as we are constantly tracking the development of Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11).
