Realme 8 Pro gets April security patch and camera improvements with second software update

Sagar, 01 April 2021

The Realme 8 Pro unveiled last week is receiving a new firmware with version number RMX3081_11_A.27. This is the second software update after a build with version RMX3081_11_A.24 was rolled out before the launch, which came with Starry Mode and Starry Timelapse features.

The new build bumps up the Android security patch level on the Realme 8 Pro from February 2021 to April 2021, which is impressive since even Google's Pixels are yet to receive the April patch.

Additionally, the firmware adds Hyper Motion Slo-Mo mode to the smartphone's rear camera and updates the watermark style. It also brings VoWiFi support for Vi (Vodafone Idea) to the Indian units. You can check out the complete changelog of the update below for more details:
