Realme jumped into the league of affordable high-end phones by launching the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered Realme X2 Pro (our review) back in 2019. The Chinese OEM reused the same SoC while designing this year’s Realme X3 series, which turned out to be an effective decision to keep the price low without sacrificing the raw horsepower. The Realme X2 Pro was launched with ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie, while it received its Android 10/Realme UI update a few months ago and is scheduled to get an “Early Access” build of Android 11 in the coming days. The Realme X3/X3 SuperZoom, on the other hand, run on Android 10-based Realme UI out of the box. All of these three smartphones have recently received new Realme UI updates with tons of new software features and optimizations.

The version number of Realme X2 Pro’s new OTA is RMX1931EX_11.C.31. FYI, both the Realme X3 and the Realme X3 SuperZoom share a common codebase, thus they have picked up a unified firmware with the build number RMX2081PU_11.A.41. There are a few notable changes in these updates: First, Realme has finally brought in the August 2020 Android security patches to these phones through the new builds of Realme UI. Next, the company has added support for auto-scrolling screenshot, “Multi-user feature”, and “Super Power Saving Mode” – the last two can be accessed from the Settings app. The experimental “Smooth Scrolling” feature has also made its way to the Realme X2 Pro through the new build.

Realme is known for its staged rollout model. The company prefers to push the updates randomly to a limited number of users and switch to a broader rollout a few days later to avoid the spread of showstopper bugs. Nevertheless, you can download the sideload-friendly full firmware package (in OZIP format) corresponding to the aforementioned builds from the index below and flash them right away.
