Besides the Realme 5 Pro, Realme is also pushing the latest update to its another great smartphone i.e. the Realme 3 Pro. The latest update is rolling out with the version number RMX1851EX_11_A.20, and the size of this update is quite big 2.74GB.
The biggest highlight of the update is system-wide dark mode feature and the October Android security patch. This new Realme 3 Pro update also brings along a new charging animation and a new fast switch toggle between SIMs in the notification centre.

The update takes a while to install, around 5 minutes and the system totally responds to the update as this is a huge one. I was personally checking out the features especially the dark mode, head over to the new Realme lab section from the settings and there you will see the option of dark mode.
There’s also the option to enforce dark mode to all the apps and exclude any app too. Most of the apps look great with dark mode and even the home screen, app drawer, notification pane, system apps all of them look great. But few apps like WhatsApp does look abnormal.
Just see the chat part and how it’s just making it white and the text cannot even be recognized. Overall the dark mode implementation is great, some apps might look a bit abnormal so I suggest to disable the feature for those specific apps.
The updated charging animation was not showing somehow, the switch toggle between SIM in the notification centre is a handy feature. Haven’t yet tested the games as the update says the updated firmware will improve the gaming experience.
One thing that I noticed for the last couple of weeks is that the smartphone used to get hot while gaming and throttle, hope this has been looked upon in this crucial update. Also, another important feature is the inclusion of October 2019 Android security patch which is the latest one.
“In order to ensure the stability of this OTA, it will have a staged rollout. The OTA will be randomly pushed out to a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs. If no critical bugs are found, the full rollout will be completed in the upcoming days,” the company has explained on its post.
