[Second build released] BREAKING: Realme 3 Pro Android 10 update (Realme UI 1.0) begins rolling out (Download link inside)

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 17, 2020) follows:

The stable Android 10 update for Realme 3 Pro is now rolling out in India. The update, as expected, brings the company’s in-house Realme UI 1.0 skin on top of OPPO’s ColorOS 7 customizations.

This doesn’t come as a surprise with the company having promised to upgrade the device to the latest Android 10 in January 2020. Yesterday, the company was also all over Twitter confirming that indeed, the Realme 3 Pro Android 10 update will begin rolling out today.

The same Twitter account also revealed that the Realme UI 1.0 update would be made available today for the Realme XT, but there is still no confirmation that the OS is rolling out, you know, like in the case of the Realme 3 Pro Android 10 update.

We would like to inform you that we will roll out realme UI based on ColorOS 7 and Android 10 for realme XT from tomorrow. Further, keep following our social media handles and official community portal for upcoming updates.

The update, however, arrives only a couple of days after Realme started looking for Realme 3 Pro and XT owners to join the Realme UI early access program. This morning, Realme, interestingly, painted a picture of uncertainty for those who registered into the early access program.

But as long as the update is now rolling out, no one will care about the early access program. So far, those who have picked up the OS say it weighs in at 3.52GB, so be sure to connect to a stable Wi-Fi network to download it.

Realme has made an official statement about the rollout, further confirming the OTA version as RMX1851EX_11_C.01. As it stands, this isn’t beta software and certainly not limited to the early access program.
