Last year, Realme did a stellar job by introducing Realme UI with Android 10 for many of its devices. However, when it comes to the Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 update, the company is taking a long time. Most of the devices released in 2021 are coming with Realme UI 2.0 pre-loaded which saves potential users from waiting a long time to taste the latest software iteration. However, this wasn’t the case with the Realme Narzo 30A and Narzo 30 Pro. Although both devices arrived this year, they’ve still arrived with Android 10-based Realme UI 1.0. The Chinese brand is running to fix this and now the devices are giving a step closer to the Realme UI 2.0 era.
Realme Narzo 30A, Realme Narzo 30 Pro and Realme 5 Pro join Realme UI 2.0
The Realme Narzo 30A, Realme Narzo 30 Pro, and the old Realme 5 Pro are now joining the list of devices eligible for the Android 11-based firmware. This is not a surprise for the Narzo 30 users, but it’s great to see the old Realme 5 Pro getting the same treatment. After all, the device comes from the Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6 days. Just like every early access update, Realme has posted on its community forums that the update may not be ideally stable enough for usage in primary smartphones. The update may also be intermittently available, and Realme states that the Realme UI 2.0 early access channel has a limited amount of seats.
Requirements for Realme UI 2.0 update
For trying this update, you make sure that you have at least 5GB of available internal storage space. The second step is to check if your device has more than 60 percent of battery juice. The process isn’t recommended if you need the smartphone daily. Just imagine taking the smartphone on a trip and it starts to fail suddenly. Those who can test will be able to check and report feedback about bugs or stability issues to Realme. After a couple of weeks, Realme will likely move these devices into the Open Beta status and then to the stable branch.
The first device to receive Realme UI 2.0 was the Realme X50 Pro in September 2020. Since then, Realme has been working hard to bring the update to many of its smartphones running Realme UI 1.0. We are curious to see how the update program will evolve now that the company is preparing the road for Realme UI 3.0. The update will have Android 12 as a base and will roll out first for the Realme GT 5G.
