Earlier today, Realme launched its 64-megapixel totting Realme XT smartphone in India. The Realme XT features a quad-Bayer 64-megapixel shooter, a Super AMOLED display, and a glass-polycarbonate construction. While the announcement of this phone was quite something, the company also made another explosive announcement.
Its India head, Madhav Sheth, revealed that Realme will be extending the upcoming Android 10 to a number of its popular devices available across multiple price segments. The company announced that the Realme XT, the Realme X, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme 3 Pro are set to receive Android 10 in the first quarter of 2020.
Revealing its Android 10 roadmap, the company also said that it will be extending this software to devices in the budget segment, including the Realme 5 and Realme 3i. However, the update will hit these devices in the second quarter of the year.
By Q3 2020, the company plans to upgrade all its phones with the Realme 2 Pro getting upgraded to Android 10 in the quarter.
As for features, Android 10 will bring with it a number of key feature,
With Android 10, users will automatically see the caption media playing on their phones. Google says that users can enable the function with a single tap. “Live Caption automatically captions videos, podcasts, and audio messages—even stuff you record yourself.” The best part is the feature will work without ever needing Wi-Fi or cell phone data.
Google has also promised Dark Theme on Android devices long back, which will bring a system-wide dark mode to a device. With Android 10, users can choose the Dark theme to keep the battery running for a more extended period.
The gesture navigation on Android 10 is one of the biggest features of the new version where Google seems to be more inspired by gestures on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS Max. Users can go backward and forwards, pull up the home screen, and swipe up to see their open apps with the help of gestures.
