The Realme 5 Pro is also facing the same fate as the Realme X in India, where the device will skip the beta testing phase and jump straight to stable Android 10. That’s okay, if you ask me, but even so, people still want to know when exactly this update will arrive.

For those on the Realme X, well, we have some good news for you. Sure, we already knew about the previously mentioned February release date of the OS, but now we have even more concrete proof that Realme X Android 10 update is imminent.

It’s a small note added at the bottom of the announcement post, but it’s quite significant. As per the note, the incoming update is here to prepare the way for the release of Realme UI update for the Realme X handset. Without it, getting updated to Android 10 will be a problem.

The update, which started rolling out yesterday, also enables VoWiFi (WiFi calling) feature for both Airtel and Reliance Jio. Follow the steps below to enable VoWiFi calling on your Realme X after installing the February update.

Step 1: Connect to a Wi-Fi network
Step 2: Go to the Settings app and select SIM Card & Mobile Data option and Tap on SIM 1 (Make sure you have Airtel/JIO SIM inserted)
Step 3: Then select the option Wi-Fi calling and turn it on. Under the Wi-Fi calling preferences, you should select Wi-Fi calling preferred option.
Step 4: In some time, you can see VoWiFi calling icon in the status bar.

That’s it! From now on, an incoming VoWiFi call will show an HD icon beside the call timer on the call UI.
