Back in 2020, Realme used the X-series to launch some of its flagship smartphones. One of these devices in the Realme X50 Pro 5G. The device launched originally with Android 10 and received an Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 stable update in December. It was one of the first devices to get Realme’s Android 11. Due to the flagship nature of this handset, it is still eligible for another major Android upgrade. Therefore, Realme has started the beta program that will bring Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0 for this particular handset.
The Realme X50 Pro is the next addition to the growing list of Realme smartphones running Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0 beta. Worth noting, however, that the early access beta is only available for the devices in India. Those who want to participate in this early access program can do it right now. You can head to the smartphones’ Settings >> Software Update menu and click on the Settings Gear. After that, click on the Trial Version >> Early Access >> Apply Now, and submit the requested details. You’ll receive an update if your application is accepted.

Realme X50 Pro joins the Android 12 beta testing
Worth noting that before proceeding with your Realme UI 3.0 application, you’ll need to be on RMX2076PUNV1B_11.C.23 firmware. The device should also have more than 10 GB of Internal Storage and at least 60 percent battery. There is no actual time limit for joining the beta program. However, that will depend on the number of available seats. Realme says that the update will be limited to a specific amount of users right now, future applications will be accepted in batches.
We need to remember that are a few things to take into consideration before proceeding. First of all, it’s risky to join an early access program with your daily driver. If you need the phone and its features working on a daily basis, then you shouldn’t update right now. This is the early access build, which probably is the most buggy one. Realme is aiming to collect feedback from users to iron out the issues and polish the firmware. The company will likely run an open beta in the coming months where everyone can join and install. After that, we’ll see the stable rollout. However, don’t hold your breath just now. Realme is known for doing long beta tests.
Once the Realme X50 Pro 5G receives the Android 12 build, we assume the device will reach the end of its support.
