Original story (published on May 16) follows:

Looking back into the past, the pace with which Realme, as a brand has grown is tremendous. The company is a spin-off brand of Oppo that commenced operations in India, back in 2018.

And fast forward to now in 2020, the Realme user base across the globe has expanded to 35 million users, and guess what? Out of those many users, 21 million users are based in India.

Well, nothing was served to the company on a silver spoon and it had to go through several rounds of evolvement to reach where it is now. One of the key factors contributing to the success of Realme is the impressive improvement in the rollout of timely updates for its devices.

The company has updated several of its devices to the latest Android 10 with Realme UI. Realme 3i and Realme 3, also picked up the Android 10 update, as promised, by the end of April with version C.09.

But, as the updates were rolled out via OTA, it was bound to take its own time in arriving on both the units. And to remove this gap and to give the Android 10 (Realme UI) update first to those who wish to be in the front line, Realme started application channel for users who wanted to get the update first on their Realme 3i and Realme 3.


Later, a new update was pushed for those who were running the Realme 3 and Realme 3i on Android 9 Pie. This new update brought the May 2020 security patches with version C.10, for both the devices.

Cut to now, the manual download links have now been made available for both devices and the changelog mentioned the C.10 as the version of this Realme UI update.

Moreover, those who have already received the Realme UI update, are getting the C.10 update as a monthly patch while the ones who haven’t received the stable Android 10 based Realme UI on their Realme 3i and Realme 3 are getting C.10 as the Realme UI update.

This is a good piece of news, as now all those who have not yet updated their Realme 3i and Realme 3 with the Android 10 (Realme UI) can manually upgrade either of the phones and enjoy the latest features.
