Realme is finally enabling 4G Carrier Aggregation support on Realme 7 series, Narzo 20 Pro, & more devices

LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation is one of the techniques being used by brands to allow users to enjoy high data rates of 4G.

This technique combines more than one carrier together, either in the same or different bands, making the available bandwidths increase further.

In simple words, when Carrier Aggregation (CA) is enabled, a 4G+ symbol appears on the network signals in the notification bar.

This has become an important feature in recent times that boosts the 4G speeds to reach up to as high as 100 Mbps.

Realme kept its distance from Carrier Aggregation for a long time, at least when it comes to the budget segment devices.

On the other hand, users from other brands have been enjoying this feature for a long time now, even on the lower segment devices.

Well, looks like Realme finally took its lesson and is now considering enabling this feature on more devices it has in the portfolio.

Recent reports from the device sections of the Realme 7 series, X3 and X3 SuperZoom, Narzo 20 Pro, and more devices suggest that the company has finally enabled this feature.

For Realme 7 Pro, this appeared soon after the rollout of the stable Realme UI 2.0 update, for the others it remains a mystery but all of them are on, at least, the beta version of Realme UI 2.0.

This hints that Realme UI 2.0 may be the dam between users and Carrier Aggregation and with an upgrade to the new UI, users will have this feature available.

This, however, has only been enabled for the Airtel and Jio networks. Vi subscribers are yet to bump into this feature.

As a result of this, internet speeds on mobile networks are recording as high as 90 Mbps for a lot of users that once remained even below 20 Mbps.

In case you own these devices and use either of the two networks and still don’t seem to find the 4G+ sign, try switching the sim to the primary slot.

It isn’t certain which all devices will receive this feature as the implication is subjected to the compatibility of hardware.

But looking at the developments, we are hopeful that more devices, as soon as they begin receiving the Realme UI 2.0 update, will have this feature enabled.

That said, we will keep tracking the developments and update here as soon as we have more devices receiving this feature.

Android 12 is also around the corner and here’s something that may excite Realme users.
