This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (from March 29) follows:

Back in November last year, Realme released the roadmap for the Android 10-based Realme UI. Sticking to the schedule, after pushing Android 10 to Realme 3 Pro and Realme XT in January, and Realme X and Realme 5 Pro in February, Realme X2 and X2 Pro were due in the current month.

Realme X2 was expected to get upgraded during the last week of March. And right in time, the device got to taste the latest-and-the-greatest Android 10. However, its Pro kin, on the other hand, was expected to get bumped to Realme UI somewhere in the mid of the month, but that didn’t really happen.

Cut to now, the wait is over even for Realme X2 Pro users as the OEM has finally pushed the stable Realme UI/Android 10 update to the device. The update bears build number RMX1931EX_11.C.23 and brigs in a lot of Realme UI/Android 10 goodies.

But before you head to check whether Android 10 has hit your X2 Pro unit, please be informed the update is being pushed in batches. The broader rollout will begin after ensuring there are no major bugs/issues. So the wait may be longer for some of you.
