The Realme India Support handle has confirmed in a reply tweet that all Realme phones launched up to date will receive Android Pie update in Q1 or Q2 2019. This comes after it earlier confirmed that the Realme 2 and Realme 1 will receive Android Pie update soon. The remaining devices which are the Realme 2 Pro, Realme C1, and Realme U1 will also receive the Android Pie update as well. The update should roll out to all these above-mentioned phones in either Q1 or Q2 of 2019. It has also confirmedthat the Realme 2 Pro will receive slow-motion video recording with the update next year.

Talking about ColorOS 5.2, the company has also confirmed in a reply tweet that the Realme 2 will get the update by the end of this month. To recall, the Realme 1 already started receiving ColorOS 5.2 last month, and now the Realme 2 will also receive it by the end of December. This was also confirmed by the company via a reply tweet through its official customer support handle. There’s no confirmation from the company’s end though.

Furthermore, ever since the last November security patch, several Realme 2 Pro users have been experiencing battery drain problems, and have taken to Twitter to report the issue. While the company claims to have rolled out an update to fix the problem, several users are still reporting issues. The issue seems to stem from the TouchPal keyboard, causing the battery to drain real fast. Uninstalling the app could be a workaround, but Realme Mobiles may possibly fix the issue with the December security patch.
