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

Original story (from April 21) follows:

Though Realme did not take too long to deliver the Realme UI (Android 10) updates for the devices under its portfolio, a few smartphones, like Realme 3 and Realme 3i are still in the pipeline to get it.

Both the devices were expected to get the stable Realme UI (Android 10) update by the second week of April, but the update seems distant, as we have already entered the third week of the month.

What gives more weightage to the above statement that the update has been pushed, is the fact that Realme has now started rolling out a new Android 9 Pie-based April 2020 security update for both the Realme 3 and Realme 3i.

This latest update also tags along some bug fixes and stability improvements for both the devices. The OTA is arriving with version number A.28 on Realme 3 and 3i.

Here is the combined changelog of the said update for both the Realme devices:
