With the introduction of a dedicated Theme Store on the devices, the users of Realme smartphone will be able to change the user interface on their devices easily. They won’t have to rely on third-party theme stores for the same.
Apart from the Theme Store, the company is also planning to launch its own dedicated App Store for its users but there’s no certain timeline available for that. While Huawei has an app store called AppGallery which is also available for Honor users, Samsung has an app store named Galaxy Apps.
