Together with GT NEO 2, realme also brings its latest smartphone operating system, realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12, continuing to deliver the product concept of Seamless Fun, with upgrades in design, fluidity, personalisation, privacy, and functionality.
Fluid Space Design
In realme UI 3.0, the design is more expressive, the layout is more organised, and the overall UI experience is more fluid.
Firstly, icons are completely refreshing due to a new 3D icon design. The outlining adds weight, and a semitransparent method is used to give it a younger feel. The entire icon design becomes more vibrant and three-dimensional once these elements are adjusted. In comparison to UI 2.0, a wider range of colours is added to fit the diverse personalities of young people better.
Not only that, but realme UI 3.0 chooses a layout that gives a spatial sense throughout to lower information density by leaving white space. In addition, the title size and the symbol and text contrast have been enhanced to give users a sense of importance and concentration concerning the information they receive. This results in a more pleasant visual experience.
realme UI has always allowed for a great deal of personalisation. Icons, backgrounds, fonts, and other elements may all be customised to suit users’ tastes. Now realme UI 3.0 supports global theme colour customisation. Users can just select any of their favourite hues as the theme colour. The AOD is upgraded as well. Users can upload a photo and enjoy a unique AOD design. Meanwhile, realme UI 3.0 also launched an AOD of our realme mascot, realmeow. Just choose the one that appeals to you the most and enjoy your all-new AOD style!
Besides, realme UI 3.0 also supports lots of Omojis, like ghosts, food, objects from everyday life, and simply everything you can think of. And realme UI 3.0 has some new dynamic wallpapers for select devices, so you guys can have a taste of the new visual experience.
Fluidity and Functionality
According to our research, the majority of users have been overwhelmingly pleased with the fluid experience of realme UI 2.0. And this has been further improved in realme UI 3.0.
The AI smooth engine is being introduced in realme UI 3.0, which adds all-around smoothness and reduces power consumption in the underlying logic. The total rate of memory usage has been enhanced, memory fragmentation has been minimized, and different programs are intelligently launched thanks to AI memory compression and unified resource scheduling. This decreases memory usage by 30%, improves overall app launching performance by 10%, and increases battery life by 12%.
At the same time, the animations are better optimized. The AI animation engine determines the dynamic change of damping to constrain the movement and curvature of the objects. The effect follows the gesture more “comfortably”. And thus, it becomes more fluid.
Floating Window 2.0 is also introduced to realme UI 3.0. Users may control floating windows as they like, making the windows even more practical and convenient in a variety of communication and usage scenarios.
realme UI 3.0 also updates its privacy functions to assure that users’ personal data and information are safer than ever before.
realme UI 3.0 has a new subtitle stitching feature that allows you to share your favourite pictures or videos privately. To safely share life’s moments, users can delete the photo's location information and photographic data, including the time stamp, camera model, and settings. More limitations to app permissions are also added in realme UI 3.0. In the case of location data, for example, non-specific locations are utilised to safeguard location privacy.
Furthermore, pictorial representations allow consumers to notice apps’ privacy activities. You can see the use of application permission in graphics, a list of apps permission, and detailed information about the use of specific applications, allowing users to master privacy use in all aspects.
What’s more, realme's global community has been officially launched on c.realme.com/global/ that allows realme users and team members to connect from across the globe. This global community will serve as a one-stop communication hub for realme’s latest updates, product launches, and community events so users will be able to get up-to-speed on realme. It also creates a space for interaction between realme’s users and executives, so there is a seamless connection between the community and the brand.
