It has also fixed a few key bugs, and comes with the August 2020 security patch. Realme 2 Pro users will be receiving the firmware version RMX1801EX_11.F.10 in a staged rollout, to ensure there are no critical bugs passed.

Realme announced the August 2020 update rollout for Realme 2 Pro on its forum. Realme said that it will be pushing out the update to a limited number of users randomly, and then have a broader rollout in a few days once it is confirmed that there are no critical bugs in the update.

Users who have not received the OTA update can also download it manually from here if they desire. Scroll down to the Realme 2 Pro on the page and click on download to get the update. Follow the instructions given in the How to update? pop-up go update the phone.

As per the changelog, the update will optimise the default display of battery percentage in the phone, add a deep cleanup feature, and the ability to long press to copy the IMEI. The August 2020 update has also fixed the touch screen issue for Realme 2 Pro users. Long pressing an icon to uninstall the app from inside the app drawer will also be possible now.

Coming to changes in the notification bar, the update will optimise the logic of flight mode for Realme 2 Pro phones, as mentioned above, which will not affect the Bluetooth status after opening. OTG Switch toggles of notification panels will also be added.

As for the camera, the EIS video anti-shake performance has been optimised for Realme 2 Pro users, as per the changelog.

The update has also fixed certain bugs for the phone. The black screen issue while using the camera has been fixed, as well as the black screen issue that arises during standby. The bug that was preventing users from using the flashlight on Realme 2 Pro has also been fixed.
This version does not have the recently introduced Smooth Scrolling feature, which allows for faster, more visually smoother scrolling. It is expected to be rolled out for the phone in future updates.
