Meanwhile, Android 10 updates continue to be released for most Realme devices. Dark theme, smart response in all messaging apps, stealth mode for Google Maps, ‘Focus Mode’ where users can choose apps they don’t want to receive notifications for a certain period of time, and advanced parental control are among the highlights of the new software update. Users will also be able to take a screenshot by swiping three fingers down on the screen with Android 10.
It is not yet clear when Google will release Android 11; however, the company’s current update schedule marks September 2020. We expect the details of the next generation operating system to be clear during the Google I / O conference, to be held from 12-14 May.
