Realme on Monday officially announced the launch of its new 'Realme UI'. The new interface brings visual changes include app icon redesign and customisation options. Realme also says the new UI brings better "screen fluency" among several other features.

Performance

Realme says its 'Realme UI' comes with the latest version of quantum animation engine, which brings improved screen fluency. The company said it has optimised the interface to improve performance and power consumption.

New features

Realme UI will come with a Focus Mode. The new feature can "keep users provisionally isolated from the outside world, and the system will simultaneously play some relaxing music to help users concentrate on the return to authenticity," said the company in a release.

The three-finger snapshot gesture feature has also been reworked. The updated UI will allow users to only touch and hold the display with three fingers for a few seconds to take a screenshot. Users can swipe down on the screen to the point where they want the screenshot captured. This will do away the need of cropping after taking a screenshot.

Visual changes

Realme UI will come with new system colors, icons, wallpapers, and animations. "In terms of colors, realme UI synthesizes the naturally high-saturation and high-brightness colors…," said the company.
