Realme’s existing smartphone portfolio are all based on Android 8 Oreo but back in November, the company confirmed that it will be bringing the Android 9 Pie update to its lineup soon. Now, a listing on benchmarking platform Geekbench shows the Realme 2 Pro running on Android 9 Pie, hinting that we could expect an official OTA update for this and possibly other phones too, soon.
The listing was uploaded on January 30 and lists the model number ‘RMX1801,’ which is the model number of the Realme 2 Pro (Review). It also confirms the presence of a Snapdragon 660 SoC and the model being benchmarked is the 4GB variant of the phone. The listing only confirms the version of Android, which is Pie in this case, and not the version of ColorOS.
The phone in question got a single-core score of 1453 points and a multi-core score of 5438 points. To recall, Realme had last month announced its Android 9.0 Pie update plans for its entire range of smartphones in India, and had given a timeline of Q1 or Q2 of 2019. The Android 9.0 Pie update would also bring slow-motion video recording alongside, the company had revealed at the time.
Apart from an update to Android 9 Pie, Realme also promised users the ability to unlock the bootloaders of the Realme 2 Pro and the Realme 1, which the company delivered on January 15. The company has also jumped in the mobile accessories business and its first product is the recently launched Realme Buds wired earphones.
