A little while ago, Realme unveiled its in-house custom Android skin, dubbed the Realme UI. We were able to install the latest update on one of our Realme X2 Pro units and have so far tested it extensively. One of the features that make the Realme UI stand out is the ‘Screen Light Effects’ feature that lets you get notified of alerts without having to turn the display of your smartphone on (screenshots and changelog). As it turns out, the same feature will be rolled out to the Realme devices that feature a Super AMOLED display – notably the Realme X2 and the Realme XT smartphones. The Realme X2, in particular, will receive the Realme UI update in March 2020.
Realme X2 to Receive Realme UI Update in March
Madhav Sheth, Realme CEO, has recently confirmed that the Realme devices touting a Super AMOLED display will receive the ‘Screen Light Effects’ feature with the upcoming Realme UI update. Though his tweet does not explicitly mention as to when the update will arrive, the Realme India Support Twitter handle, in response to a follower’s question, has cleared the clouds by confirming that the Realme X2 devices will begin receiving the Realme UI update in March.
Hey, realme X2 will receive the "Screen Light Effects" feature with realme UI in March. Stay tuned for further updates on the same.?

For the unaware, the Realme UI update has already been rolling out to the Realme XT and the Realme 3 Pro devices. The feature that we talked about, however, will, of course, stay exclusive to AMOLED screens.
What the feature essentially does is that it lights up your device display the moment you receive a phone call or a notification. This thereby eliminates the need for a dedicated LED notification light, something the smartphone companies are finding too hard to pull off nowadays, owing to the full-screen displays trend. The lighting effects can be customized and you get the option to choose from three different effects – Amber Orange, Neon Purple, and Ocean Blue. To enable the screen light effects feature, all you need to do is to hit the Settings >> Display and Brightness >> Screen Light Effects.
