Realme UI 3.0 introduces a new Fluid Space Design with 3D icons and a much wider range of colors than Realme UI 2.0. Realme has also updated the Always-on Display feature with new themes, including the ability to set any photo as an Always-on Display screen.
Along with a revamped UI, the update also promises a significant improvement in performance, thanks to an AI Smooth Engine.
