Realme UI is something every Realme smartphone were eagerly waiting for. Finally, the wait is over and it is official now. When it compared to ColorOS 7, it borrows most of its features from the former custom user interface. There are some features which are exclusively available to Realme phones via Realme UI. If you want to describe the new UI, you can call it customised version of ColorOS 7.
As you might be aware of, the Realme UI v1 is based on latest Android 10 operating system. Obviously, it will offer the core features of Android 10. There is system-wide dark mode as well as Always On Display, which is essentially very useful for AMOLED display. In this article, we will be talking about Realme UI features, release date, Stable update schedule, Beta update and more. Without any further delay, let’s get started!
Realme UI Features
As we have mentioned, it borrows some of the key features of ColorOS 7. But at the same time, there are some unique features exclusively available to Realme UI. Which makes it slightly different than the ColorOS 7 and more close to Stock Android. Below is the detailed list of Realme UI:
Realme UI comes with latest Icons which is customisable according to your need. As the heading suggests, You can easily customize the shape, size and transparency of available icons. Besides, it also allows to Realme users to add a new personalize image to any icon. It would be a great option if you love yo change your icon pack without actually rooting the device. Essentially, now you have more control on your icon pack what you actually want to see in front of your eyes.
Dual Earphone Connection
This is the feature you would love to use if you are fond of listening to music in your earphones. With the new Dual Earphone Connection feature, you can connect Bluetooth and wired earphones simultaneously. I was actually surprised to see this option when I saw it the first time. The is indeed a very useful feature if you want to share the audio with another person while using watching your favourite multimedia content.
Both wired and wireless earphones are well capable of listening sound at the same time or wired earphones can be used to receive only media audio and Bluetooth earphones for phone audio or to receive calls. The usability depends upon you what suits you best in different scenarios.
Now Realme UI let you choose the animated wallpapers. Many of its competitors already added these options in their custom user interfaces including MIUI 11. Realme has upgraded its library with 11 new backgrounds for the home screen, which also includes animated wallpapers. If you really love to see moving wallpapers, you can use this option. Otherwise, using normal wallpaper isn’t a bad idea.
Just like the any other UI, Realme UI comes with system-wide Dark Mode. Indeed, it is a core feature of Android 10 operating system. That is the reason most of the manufacturers are giving priority to include this feature. Besides, the company also introduce an additional option called Screen-Off. It is actually Always On Display first introduced by Samsung to utilize its AMOLED panels.
This feature indeed very useful for OLED panels. Because it doesn’t consume much battery while showing some specific information. If you are aware, OLED or AMOLED panels do not use the light while showing black dots. And this feature is best suited if your Realme device has an AMOLED display. By using this option, you can check the time, notifications and some other specification details without even waking up the display.
Redesigned User Interface
Realme UI comes with a redesigned user interface in comparison to older ColorOS 6 found on the majority of Reame Phones. It is now a lot cleaner and bloatware-free, that offers a smooth experience. The Homescreen is slightly different than the ColorOS 7 but overall design changes are minimalistic. The toggle section reminds us the OneUI 2.0, but still slightly different look & feel. The company has already clarified that Realme UI is a customised version of ColorOS 7. So, it is obvious certain similarities between both the UIs.
Screen Light Effects
This feature reminds us of the Edge Lighting features of Samsung as well as OnePlus devices. Whenever you get a voice call or notification comes through, edges of the display glow in a particular colour. It looks great and fills the space of lack of notification light. It could be useful in different scenarios.
Digital Wellbeing has been now mandatory for Android operating system. There is no exception with Realme UI. It offers all the needed options to employ the Digital Wellbeing for specific tasks. Digital Wellbeing includes parental control options to restrict specific uses and keep eying on your kids.
As Google has already confirmed Android 10 primarily focuses on security, Realme UI has some additional security features. Without any doubt, Realme UI will enjoy all the security improvements of Android 10 by default. But it has some other features focused on Security such as Private Information Protection. It returns blank page to specif apps asking for personal data including Call History, Contacts, Messages and Events. It ensures to stop leaking your private information to certain apps.
