“The confirmation for the OTA update comes from Realme CEO Madhav Sheth, who assures that the rollout will begin in a few days“
After parting ways with its parent company OPPO, Realme created a stir in the budget Android market in India with the launch of Realme 2 and Realme 2 Pro (review). The latter has received a lot of accolades owing to its powerful specs and a waterdrop notch design. However, users have reported that the smartphone’s battery backup is not up to the mark. To rectify the issue, the brand has now announced that a new software update will be rolled out through OTA in the next few days.

The announcement came from Realme’s CEO, Madhav Sheth who took to the Twitter to confirm the update. The tweet from the top honcho says that the upcoming update for the smartphone will bring significant improvements to the front camera as well as the battery backup of the handset. While the tweet confirms that the OTA will come next week, no specific date has been revealed. Sheth also went on to announce that the ColorOS 5.2 update for Realme 1 (review) is also in the pipeline, once the OTA for Realme 2 Pro has rolled out.
The Realme 2 Pro update comes in the light of users complaining about the poor battery backup as the smartphone was draining excessively even during standby. Users have also complained about the selfies camera on the smartphone overexposing every shot. Both issues are likely to be fixed in the upcoming OTA.
