With the ongoing Corona Virus Pandemic, many sectors have been affected. Companies are urging the employees to stay home and many economies are generally slowed down. The smartphone industry hasn’t been spared either.

However, despite these hurdles, many phonemakers are still finding ways to roll out updates to devices. Most recently, we saw the OnePlus 7 and the 7 Pro getting updated to the March Android security patch update and now, Realme is following suit.
