“Realme UI is said to offer an enhanced and closer to stock Android experience”
Realme has officially launched its very-own custom Android skin, Realme UI, in India as the brand moves away from ColorOS. Realme UI, to recall, was announced during the Realme X2 launch event in the country last month.

It comes with high-saturation and high-brightness colours and app icons inspired by common household items. “The Settings icon, for example, derived from gear parts,” the company said in a press release. The UI also comes with an option to customise the app icons with different shapes and sizes.
Realme UI is backed by the latest quantum animation engine, which is beleived to improve the screen fluency and optimisation. Other highlights of the UI include 11 new wallpapers inspired by natural elements; three customised “trendy” function, including three-finger screenshot gesture, focus mode, and personal information protection; and the goodness of Android 10.
