Battery

Camera

● Added Slow Motion mode.

UI

●  New Material Design icons.

Security

● Android Security Patch Level: December 5, 2018.

16 December: According to the official Realme Forum post, Realme 2 Pro will get a December update with Fix for notification blinking issue in developer mode, Slow motion, and new security patch by the end of December 2018. However, the full rollout may start in early January 2019. The update will not contain major software changes and will be based on ColorOS 5.2, so still no Android Pie or ColorOS 6.0 update.

Update: The Realme 2 Pro will be updated to ColorOS 5.2 on November 20 or later with features similar to that on the Realme 1, the CEO Madav Seth quoted. “Please note that we’ll do our best to meet these deadlines but a minimal delay might happen, and you may not receive the update on the very same day as rollouts take time,” states Realme in its November 2018 update.

Update: OPPO subbrand Realme start rolling out an OTA update to the Realme 2 Pro by the end of this year, which will bring front camera improvements and battery optimizations while gaming said Realme CEO Madhav Seth, in a post on his Twitter handle.

Considering Google has come up with a solid new way of updating Android phones to the latest version of Android at a much faster pace via the implementation of Project Treble.  Which offers separations of concern from vendor’s driver within the chip, so the OEM doesn’t have to wait for the chipmaker to update things, it is now not a headache anymore. Because of which updating the mainframe software is much quicker now.

However for that, the phone should be treble enabled, and to check the same, there are many ways by using the terminal emulator which is a hassle if you are not an advanced user so for a more quicker way you can download the Apps for the same purpose from the Play Store as well.

Coming back towards Android Pie update for Realme 2 Pro, According to the companies official statement, all Realme devices including Realme C1, Realme 2, and Realme 1 will get the Android Pie update in H1 of 2019. As the device is bit new and selling well, the company may update the device to Android 9 Pie based Color OS 6.0 in Q1 of 2019.

However, there could be delays due to ColorOS 6 as that will be heavy skin on top of stock Android. On the other hand, you will continue to receive security patches for the next two years. However, some insiders suggest that RealMe may seed the Realme 2 Pro Android Pie update at the end of January. We will update the article as soon as new news is there about the update.
