The Realme 8 Pro launched last week, but the new smartphone from the Chinese OEM is getting its second wireless update. This time, you will receive a security update, which is the usual monthly patch that Android devices receive. The update also brings a new 960fps slo-mo video mode for its rear camera and a few other camera improvements. The Realme 8 Pro is the most advanced version of the Realme 8 that was also announced at the same time.
The Realme 8 Pro update has the build number RMX3081_11_A.27 and is around 329MB so you need to make room before updating. The main goal of the update is to bring the April security patch to the smartphone, which doesn’t actually bring any new features, but is a much-needed patch for your phone to remain secure and function properly. The lump is not something you will notice, but it does its job.
XDA Developers shares That minor thing the upgrade can do is bring in a 960fps setting for the camera’s slow-motion mode or what’s called Hyper Motion Slo-Mo mode. This is just in case you need even more dramatic slow motion video. This only applies to the main camera on the rear, so you can’t do super slow motion while taking a selfie video. It should also fix the flickering and color change issues some users experienced.
The update also brings a new watermark style for photos taken with the 108MP camera. You can enable or disable the logo, device name, and date and time from the watermark. When it comes to the logo, it will now display the new Realme infinity logo, which is being used to boost the detail-capturing capabilities of the Realme 8 Pro’s 108MP camera. The camera capabilities of the new smartphone is one of the highlights of this device.
To update your Realme 8 Pro, go to the phone settings and search for Software update. If the OTA update is already available, you will see the option that says “Update now”.
