The new update is about 2GB in size and carries version number RMX1805EX_11_A.54.
As per Realme‘s official forum, the update adds features like notification icons to the Status Bar as well as an app drawer. It also brings support for navigation gestures and Riding mode. The latter helps keep distractions at bay by muting notifications. Furthermore, the update will also change the design of the notifications shade. It adds Realme Theme Store as a standalone app. The changelog also includes an updated User interface of AI Board.
The update is being rolled out via over-the-air, so it will hit the devices gradually. If Realme 2 users haven’t received a notification for the same, they can check in the phone’s Settings section. After Realme 2, the next smartphone that is expected to get the ColorOS 6 update is the Realme C2, as per the roadmap.
