New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on January 30, 2021) follows:
Realme is on fire with the rollout of Android 11 for its devices via the Realme UI 2.0 Early Access program.
Earlier, we reported that the Realme UI 2.0 Early Access program may have been delayed for the Realme 6 and Realme X3 according to a moderator.
Fortunately, Realme stuck to its original plan to announce the Early Access program in January and has opened up the registrations for interested users to test Android 11 alongside the company’s custom skin on the devices.
The announcements were made on the company’s community forums earlier today and the registrations have kick-started already.
There are only a limited number of slots available, thus, if you’re interested in joining the Early Access program to try out Realme UI 2.0 on the Realme 6, Realme C12, Realme C15, Realme X2, Realme X3, Realme SuperZoom, we’d suggest signing up right away.
Follow these steps to enlist yourself in the beta program:
1.Update your device to the required UI version (check the announcement page for your device).
2.Apply for the Early access via the Software Update Application channel:
(Settings > Software Update > Tap on the settings icon in the top right corner > Trial Version > Apply Now > Submit your details and finish the quiz).
If for some reason you wish to downgrade to Android 10, you will be able to do so, however, keep in mind that all documents and files would be erased from the device.
That said, Realme is also expected to announce the Realme UI 2.0 Early Access program for a handful of other devices next month.
So keep an eye out on our dedicated tracker to know more about the status and availability of Realme UI 2.0 for your device.
