[Updated] Realme 3 & 3i Realme UI-based May update released while many await Android 10, brings back swipe-up gestures & fixes PUBG audio

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

Original story (published on May 15) follows:

Realme rolled out the Android 10-based Realme UI 1.0 update to the Realme 3i & Realme 3 not too long ago, as the C.09 build. Well, sort of. While this was the stable version of the update, it was not rolled out to the masses.

Instead, Realme thought it wise to out up this build in the stable update channel and have users who would like to get it first, apply to do so. For the larger masses, the update hasn’t rolled out quite yet.

While that unfolds, users who are still on Android 9 Pie have reported receiving an update. The update which is now available for the Realme 3i bears software version number C.10.

The update brings with it the May 2020 Android security patch and a few more optimizations and enhancements. Some of these include optimized camera quality and has brought back some Swipe-up gestures.

Other enhancements include fixed issues of screen sliding misjudgment and improved gaming experience. You should also see an enhanced battery life in some scenes. The same update has been reported for the Realme 3i.

It remains unclear when the update will be rolled out to all Realme 3 and 3i users but seeing as it is already in its stable form, it shouldn’t be too long before the update is pushed out to more Realme 3 and 3i users. We can only hope that Realme does this soon.
