Realme XT Gets Dark Mode, Wide Angle Video Recording Features With the Latest ColorOS 6.01 Update


The Realme XT was the first-ever 64MP camera smartphone to debut in the Indian market. It came with very powerful internals and Color OS 6.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie. And while Realme has already revealed its plans to update the handset to Android 10.0, a new update has arrived with much-anticipated features. The new update weighs in at 2.87G and notably brings not only the dark mode but also wide-angle video-shooting capabilities promised by the CEO recently.

Talking about dark mode, it recently arrived on the Realme 5 Pro as well as the Realme C2 along with the October security patch. However, the changelog for the Realme XT doesn’t mention any October patch at all. The new update comes with a new camera interface and fine-tunes the shooters for low-light, noise reduction, and white balance. A couple of bug fixes have been mentioned as well and are mostly related to the camera itself.

The Realme XT is a fairly new device that launched just in September and a bump to Android 10.0 is promised for Q1 2020 alongside the Realme 5 Pro and Realme X. Realme is also working on Color OS 7.0 which we believe could debut with the Realme X2 Pro on November 20 in India.

The Realme XT was also on a limited-time Rs 1,000 discount in the recent Diwali sale on e-commerce portals.  It is still being sold at Rs 15,999 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage version which is available in Pearl White and Pearl Blue options. Further offers can bring that down by another Rs 1,000 making it Rs 14,999 effectively.

In terms of features, the Realme XT offers a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 712 SoC, an in-screen fingerprint reader, 4,000mAh VOOC 3.0-capable battery, and finally the rare 64MP camera. The only competitor is the Redmi Note 8 Pro if you’re looking for another 64MP camera option and it sells for Rs 14,999 during flash sales. It is scheduled for Rs 2nd November 2019.
