Despite the global crisis that is the Corona Virus Pandemic, many phone-makers haven’t exactly slowed down in rolling out updates to many of their devices. This is a very impressive sight to see, seeing as many sectors have been adversely hit.

Realme has been rather steadfast in pushing out updates to its devices. We have seen the Chinese phone maker push out security patches and updates to enable VoWiFi on many of its devices in the past couple of weeks.

Sticking with the same pace, Realme is today pushing out monthly security updates to even more of its devices. Some of these updates are merely monthly security patches while others are bugfixes that come with the new security patch level.

First up are the Realme U1 and the Realme 1. Both devices are getting updated to the March Android security patch level. However, for the Indian model, this update brings a rather important bugfix.
