The first smartphone of Realme – Realme X2 Pro was very well received. It offers insane value and goes head-to-head with the OnePlus 7T. The device comes with Color OS 6.0 but the Color OS 6.1 update is already available. There is a dark mode to toggle as well as change the UI color of the system and supported third-party apps to dark mode.
However, this dark mode feature is not available upfront via notification toggle. It’s also worth noting that the dark mode feature is still in beta. As a result, some apps may not appear when dark mode should be enabled. However, if you’ve got yourself a shiny new Realme X2 Pro, then check out the steps below to enable dark mode on the Realme X2 Pro.
Dark Mode on Realme X2 Pro
Enabling the dark mode feature saves battery life thanks to the AMOLED screen. Since the black pixels are off on AMOLED panels, it’s also great for nighttime use.
- Launch the app Setting on your device.
- Scroll to the bottom of the list and then tap realme Lab.
- Now choose option Dark Mode and turn on the switch next to the option Turn it on now. This enables dark mode on the Realme X2 Pro.
- To configure dark mode for third-party apps, tap Dark Mode for Third Party Apps.
- You will see a list of supported apps.
- Just enable or disable the dark mode feature for apps based on your preferences.
Since some apps may not appear their best when toggling dark mode, we have the option to disable it for those apps. At the very least, Android 10 is not available for the Realme X2 Pro, which is disappointing. But thanks to this feature, third-party apps can be switched to dark mode.
There are a few other apps available on the Google Play Store that allow users to enable dark mode in third-party apps. But the Realme Labs functionality has replaced the need for a third-party app to enable dark mode on the Realme X2 Pro.
When will the Color OS 7 update arrive?
The company has released a timeline for the Android 10 update for its devices. According to the timeline, the Realme X2 Pro will receive the update near the end of Q1 next year. This was a much longer wait than most expected. However, the recruitment of beta testers has ended and the selected ones will get to experience Color OS 7 based on Android 10 sooner than others.
Android 10 brings its own tweaked dark mode so we expect to see the dark mode on the Realme X2 Pro a bit more subtle. As its first flagship phone, the Realme X2 Pro will receive at least two major Android updates. Though we hope to see the next big Android update arrive sooner. Until then you will have to use the ‘temporary’ dark mode on the Realme X2 Pro.
