There are a lot of Realme smartphones that didn’t get Android 11, but the company can’t wait and need to bring Android 12 to those in the “priority” line. That of course means that it’s already running to bring the Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0 to its devices under the Realme GT series. The original GT with Snapdragon 888, and GT Neo already are part of the company’s early access program for the Realme UI 3.0 update. This also gave the Realme X7 Max 5G the right to join the program, as this is a rebranded Indian Neo. Now, it’s time for the recently unveiled Realme GT Neo 2 to join the Early Access phase of Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0.
The Realme UI 3.0 includes all Android 12 features like Wallpaper theming and new privacy controls. Moreover, Realme implements an AI smooth engine, AOD Personalizations, Floating Window 2.0, Security and Privacy Enhancements, and much more.
Realme UI 3.0 stable update should arrive in Q1 2022 for Realme GT Neo 2
According to the forum post, the Realme UI 3.0 for the Realme GT Neo started on December 16th. The applications will be accepted in batches and there are a few seats for interested users. So, if you can’t wait to try it on your device, run! However, don’t hold your breath, as it’s upon Realme to accept your subscription or not. Those who are unfamiliar with early access builds, may come flooded with bugs. So if the device is your daily driver, then flashing an early access build may not be a good idea. Some apps may not work properly and there can be battery drain issues.
To apply for the Realme UI 3.0 Early Access program, you need to head over to the Software Update section. After that, you’ll need to tap on the Settings icon in the right corner and head over to the trial version. After that, you’ll need to tap on Apply Now and Submit your details and finish the quiz. Soon after the enrollment, your device may get a chance to test the Realme UI 3.0 update. Your device needs to be running firmware version RMX3370_11.A.05 and we recommend at least 60% of battery. Moreover, it’s a good idea to backup your storage before proceeding. If something goes wrong and you need to roll back to Android 11, your storage may be wiped in the process.
Realme is not the fastest company when it comes to updates. So we don’t expect a stable update to reach the Realme GT Neo 2 before 2022.
