Realme 5i started to receive the January 2020 security patch update. Users’ reports claimed the update is available OTA with the RMX2030EX_11_A.14 version number. As per the shared changelog, the update brings the December 2019 Android security patch, few bug fixes, camera fixes, etc. Realme 5i was launched last week in India and went on for sale just a day before. The mobile is available on Realme.com and Flipkart.
As the sale began just a day ago, there should be fewer owners of the device. The people who own it already will get the OTA update immediately. If you have ordered and are waiting for the delivery of the mobile phone, you should receive the OTA as soon as you get the device.
Improvements in the latest Realme 5i January OTA update
A user forum post confirms that the update brings December 2019 Android security patch with it and not January 2020 patch. The update optimizes an issue of redness in the selfie camera and improved clarity of wide-angle photos. It also fixes the low probability silent problem of gaming when the users plug in their headphones after unplugging them. The update comes with a massive size of 2.59 GB, and, as mentioned earlier, bears version number RMX2030EX_11_A.14.
As the update has a large size, it is better to download it using a stable and strong WiFi connection. It’s better to install the downloaded update when you don’t use the mobile as it takes some time to complete the installation process.
If you did not receive the update, you could also go for the manual update. You can download manually by going into Settings. Realme has also made a manual download link available on its support page. You can download it using the Simple mode or Recovery mode. The process is also mentioned on the support page.
