How to Flash Realme Firmware on your Device [Software Update Guide]

In this guide, we will tell you the easy ways to flash Realme firmware on your Realme smartphone. The thing is, there are a majority of people out there who use smartphones but they are not aware of software updates. They have no idea how important it is to keep the phone updated with security patches and other time-to-time updates released by the OEM. Hence, with the guide, we believe they can know about software updates and install them on their own.

Realme is a Shenzhen-based Chinese smartphone manufacturer brand founded by Sky Li, who was the Ex-VP of Oppo Electronics. The parent organization of Realme is BBK Electronics. Last year, Realme has launched a couple of devices in a competitive price tag with good hardware specifications in order to compete with Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, and other brands. All the mentioned brands are good in providing budget and mid-range segment all-rounder Android smartphones. As Realme is a sub-brand of Oppo, all the Realme devices are running on Oppo’s ColorOS skin based on Android out-of-the-box.

The ColorOS skin is quite optimized and offers a quite stable experience as well but according to the users, it should be more optimized, fully-featured, and stable like other custom skins such as OxygenOS or MIUI. Though Realme developers and community are quite active and friendly in terms of sharing troubleshoot guides, tips, bug fixes, etc to its devices, the Realme users are waiting for a new enhanced ColorOS skin only for Realme devices. Recently, Realme India CEO, Madhav Seth, has mentioned that they’re working hard to deliver a stock-like user experience with ColorOS 7 which will be optimized for Realme devices.

Realme after its rebranding as a separate entity in 2018, has become one of the successful smartphone companies in India. We have seen the company releasing budget devices in its initial days. However, soon it came up with mid-range and premium phones, lacing them with all the latest techs. Simultaneously, it has also improved its software support efficiency over time.

Usually, people think that a new or not so widespread smartphone brand doesn’t roll out software regularly. This is not true for Realme. They follow a planned approach for system updates and push software patches for all of their devices.
