Realme 2 Pro to Receive Slow Motion Video Support Via OTA Update in Early 2019, CEO Confirms

Realme 2 Pro will gain the ability to record slow motion videos as part of a software update early next year.


Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that it plans to bring the slow motion video recording feature to the Realme 2 Pro sometime in the first quarter of 2019. He also hinted at the possibility of the feature being rolled out to other Realme smartphones. While slow motion video recording is not a common feature in budget smartphones, some Realme 2 Pro rivals such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Mi A2 do offer 720p HD slow motion video capture at 120fps. The Honor 8X, which starts at INR 14,999 in India, offers 480fps slow motion video recording.

Realme 2 Pro to Gain Slow Motion Video Recording Support Early Next Year

Realme will be bringing slow motion video recording to the Realme 2 Pro with an OTA update for the smartphone in the first quarter of 2019. A more specific timeframe has not been provided by the company, so Realme 2 Pro owners may need to wait until March to receive slow motion video recording support. Older Realme smartphones such as the Realme 1 certainly have the hardware to support slow motion video capture, so Realme can certainly choose to bring the feature to the Realme 1. Whether or not that will actually happen, remains to be seen. Entry-level Realme smartphones like the Realme C1 and the Realme 2, however, are unlikely to gain the feature.

Even though it has not been officially confirmed yet, we expect the Realme 2 Pro to receive the Android Pie update as well in the first quarter of 2019. So far, the company has confirmed the Pie update for the Realme 1 and Realme 2 smartphones. Since the Realme 2 Pro is the most expensive smartphone that the brand sells currently, there is a good chance that it will be updated to Android Pie soon after the Realme 1 receives the update.
