Realme has revealed its Realme UI 2.0 skin.The new skin brings more customization features to the fray.
Realme UI shares plenty in common with stablemate Oppo’s ColorOS, with Realme’s skin and Oppo’s ColorOS 7 both offering a stock-like take on Android and sharing features.
Oppo previously revealed ColorOS 11 last week, and now it’s Realme’s turn to launch Realme UI 2.0. So what does the new Android skin bring to the table?
Some of the more notable Realme UI 2.0 features center on customization. You now have more system color customization (e.g. notification bar, shortcut buttons), more Always On Display customization (including custom AOD patterns), and more font tweaks (including the ability to adjust how thick/thin you want your font to be).

Other notable Realme UI 2.0 features include an upgraded dark mode, floating windows, improved Digital Wellbeing, Private Space to hide apps/files, and a Security Shield. The latter is a suite of privacy and security features, such as a call blocklist, app permission security, payment service security, and Android 11‘s security features. The company also touted Subtitle Stitching (letting you choose a subtitle to go with a screenshot of a video) and Realme Share for local sharing.
Realme used its Narzo 20 launch event to confirm that the new Android update will be available to the Realme X50 Pro first, via an early access program on September 24 and then an open beta program at the end of October. A stable release will come to the phone by the end of November, according to the brand.
The company didn’t officially confirm a full list of devices set to get Realme UI 2.0, but an image purportedly from the event suggests that the company will be offering an early access program in three waves. We’ve contacted Realme to confirm the authenticity of this information and are awaiting a response. Nevertheless, you can find the apparent early access roadmap details below:

It’s interesting to note that last year’s Realme 3 isn’t on the list. In fact, even the brand-new Narzo 20A, which was literally announced today, purportedly isn’t getting access to any form of Realme UI 2.0 until Q2 2021. Hopefully the official roadmap adds these phones to the list.
