Realme 5 Pro/Q, Realme X, Realme 3 Pro/X Lite, X50 Pro 5G March update with swipe gesture from both sides, bug fixes released

A majority of Realme handsets that are eligible for an update to Realme UI 1.0 based on Android 10 are yet to see the new OS. Perhaps the coronavirus outbreak in China is to blame, but things seem to have normalized over the recent past.

So far, the Realme UI update is available for the Realme 3 Pro, Realme XT, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme X in a stable version. The likes of Realme X2 and Realme X2 Pro have it in beta, with the stable version expected before the end of this month.

With Android R already in the works, we have also shed some light on some of the devices we expect to receive Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 when the time comes, probably late this year or early 2021.
