How to change the region on Realme

Realmi adjusts its smartphone software for specific regions. Restrictions are set according to the requirements of certain countries. But many users want access to additional features, so they wonder how to change the region on Realme and whether it is possible at all. In this article we will consider an effective method that will allow to change the region completely, despite the binding to a specific country.

Is it possible to change the region to Realme and what it will do

Если зайти в настройки телефона, то можно увидеть отдельный раздел «Язык и регион». В данном пункте есть вкладка, позволяющая быстро установить любую страну. Но, к сожалению, все не так просто. На смартфонах Realme смена региона только через настройки является бесполезной. Новые функции не появятся, и вы не заметите никаких отличий.

The thing is that Realmi ties the phone to the sales region, so changing the country in the settings does not bring the desired result. To unlink the factory region and set a different one, you need to do a multi-step procedure, which we will discuss below. Let's say right away that unlocked bootloader and root rights are not required.

Users want to change the country on their phone to get access to advanced features. Such features as a proprietary theme store, system call recording, radio, and HeyTap account appear. These options are blocked in almost all European regions.

How do I determine regional affiliation?

Определить текущую региональность очень просто. Достаточно посмотреть на фирменной упаковке электронную почту службы поддержки. Если смартфон приобретался на территории Европы, то, соответственно, на нем установлена Европейская прошивка (EU) с привязкой к определенной стране (Украина — UA, Беларусь — BY и т. д). Телефоны, купленные в России, оснащаются Российской прошивкой. Домен выглядит как RU. Расширение UZ обозначает Азию.

Если говорить вкратце: на смартфоне установлен тот регион, на территории которого он был официально приобретен. Дела обстоят чуть сложнее, если устройство заказывалось с китайского интернет-магазина. Такие детали нужно отдельно уточнять у продавца.

    Good afternoon. Not so long ago changed the region to a multi-language (was Europe, ordered from China) in order to get the theme store on the phone. Changed (pre-installed 10 Android, as 11 did not work), the theme store appeared, worked fine, but ... did not appear recording calls. The next day, changed the region to Russia, there was no call logging but no theme store. Can you suggest the region, which will be all at once and keep the NFC, the frequency of communication and the Internet, etc.? Or so universal does not exist?

      To record calls, only the RF works. On the same region put the usual store APK, everything will turn on.

    Good day. I did a rollback from android 11 to android 10 and installed the multilingual region (all according to your instructions), and in the phone selected the region of Thailand.
    The ringer remained from google and call recording did not appear. Then I tried to change the region again, but there is no OK in the right window OPPO UNLOCK.
    Reflashed the phone again, but nothing has changed.Installed the ringer Realme,but the record does not appear. Over the air phone does not see the update.
    SIM card KievStar and location Ukraine. What can be the reason?

      You need N time to pass between the change requests and the approvals. Try in a couple of days. I also recommend that you immediately put a multi, then select the desired one in the settings. Recording calls appears almost always in the RU region.

    If you change the region on the phone Realme GT Neo, which is designed only for China - will there be at least English in the theme store? Because in Chinese it is somehow not very clear everything))))

    • Yegor Borisov
      Published: 13.08.2021 Reply to the message

      In the Chinese version, region 1 is China. I advise to read about the firmware. Also as an option you can try to put the EU version of the theme store.

    Smartphone Realme GT 5G. For the Chinese market.
    I did all the operations. Everything worked (up to the creation of the bridge). But when I connected the phone in the left window of SegrecyAutoUnloker 1.5 appeared a set of numbers, but when you click on Unlok in the right window "Ok" does not appear. The Unlok button is in Stop unloking mode.
    I disconnect the phone. In the system dialer I enter the command *#3954391#, but no line appears.
    How to solve the problem?
    Thank you!
