Realme U1 users, here’s some good news for you. The company is rolling out a new software update, which not only introduces the latest Android security patch, but also a few improvements.

Realme CEO Madhav Sheth took to Twitter to announce the roll out of the Realme U1 software update. The update version RMX1831EX_A.05 is being gradually rolled out to users. On the forum post, the company mentions that the OTA update will be “randomly pushed out to a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs. If no critical bugs are found, the full roll out will be completed end of January.”

The update brings January 2019 Android security patch to the smartphone. Besides that, the changelog reveals improvements to the smartphone’s cameras. These include improved HDR for the selfie camera, improved skin toning in portrait shots, and a fix to the camera’s tendency to grey out skies.

Other changes include improvements to the overall camera performance, a new watermark, and the addition of a fingerprint gesture to click photos. The phone also gets the reboot function with the update, as well as optimized reminders when Developer Options, Accessibility Mode, and Device Manager are on.
