Sheth revealed that the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro smartphones would get the Theme Store with the update that will arrive in May 2019. The tweet states that the Realme C2 has pre-loaded Theme Store, which means it won’t need any OTA update like other Realme phones. Buyers of the Realme C2 would enjoy the Theme Store out-of-the-box.
Other Realme phones including the Realme 1, Realme 2, Realme C1, Realme U1, Realme 2 Pro will get the update for Theme Store whenever they receive ColorOS 6 updates. In the previous reports, we learned that the Realme 1, Realme 2, Realme C1, Realme 2 Pro, and Realme U1 would start receiving Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6 update June onwards.
This is a piece of great news for Realme users who wanted a Theme Store. Until now, Realme users had to depend on third-party Theme stores to change the outlook of their phone’s UI, but now they will get official Realme themes on a dedicated Theme Store.
Timelines for THEME STORE update
Rm3 & Rm3pro: In May OTA
RMC2: out of box
Rm 1, Rm2 , RmC1, Rm U1, Rm2pro : OTA with Pie.
Thank you all.
