Realme reveals Android 10 schedule for the C2, wireless charger availability, and more
After a two month hiatus, Realme India’s CEO Madhav Sheth recently returned with another episode of AskMadhav — the company’s video Q&A series on YouTube. In the latest episode, Sheth revealed a ton of information about upcoming software updates for some of the company’s products and hinted at a couple of new products that will be added to its portfolio later this year.
Starting with software updates, Sheth confirmed that the budget-friendly Realme C2 from last year will receive the Realme UI update based on Android 10 in September. With the update, C2 users will get access to all the new features Google introduced in Android 10, coupled with the new UI design and features included in the company’s latest Android skin.
Realme recently released a flash tool for installing ColorOS/Realme UI updates on its devices. However, at the moment, the flash tool is only compatible with the X50 Pro. In the video, Sheth confirmed that the company will be adding support for more Realme devices running Android 10 shortly. The company will make an announcement on the Realme community forums as soon as the flash tool receives support for more devices.
Speaking of the Realme Band, Sheth revealed that the music controls feature, which was promised in a previous episode, has already started rolling out to users via an OTA update. He further added that the company is working on new watch faces for the fitness band, which will be rolled out to users “very soon.” Additionally, Sheth confirmed that the company is working on an improved notification management system for the Realme Watch. Talking about upcoming devices, Sheth revealed that a new 55-inch ‘flagship’ Realme TV will be launched in India next month, and the company will be launching a wireless charger in the country this month.
