Realme 2 Pro Gets Android 10 OS and Realme UI with the Latest Software Update

Android 10 update for the Realme 2 Pro

The Realme 2 Pro was launched almost two years ago, in September 2018. The phone came with the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with ColorOS 5.2 customization at the time of its launch. In 2019, the smartphone was upgraded to Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6. The Realme 2 Pro is now getting the Android 10 operating system with Realme UI.

Realme had started the ‘Realme UI Early Access’ program for the Realme 2 Pro almost a month ago. This was a public beta testing program of the Android 10 OS for the smartphone. Realme is now rolling out a stable version of the Android 10-based software to the beta testers as well as the regular users of the Realme 2 Pro. This Android 10 update for the Realme 2 Pro comes bearing the version number RMX1801EX_11.F.07 and it is 2.95GB in size.

Going by the user reports online, the update is being rolled out via the OTA method, in stages. If you haven’t got the update yet, you can check for it manually from the ‘Software Update’ section of the smartphone that can be found in the setting menu. It is worth mentioning that there is an issue going on with Realme’s OTA servers due to which a few users might be getting the ‘No network connection’ error while they are trying to check for the update manually. Worry not, Realme has said that the issue will be fixed in two working days.

The new software for the Realme 2 Pro brings almost all the standard features of the Android 10 operating system. Since the new software is baked with the brand’s latest UI customization, the Realme UI, it gets additional features of the custom UI pack.
