New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on July 30, 2020) follows:

While Android security updates usually bring security patches, some OEMs like Realme push bug fixes and other improvements along. Realme recently provided the July security update to some of its devices that also included the realme Link app.

Now, Realme is pushing the July security update to the Realme X Lite (aka Realme 3 Pro), Realme 3i, and Realme 3 with a lot of bug fixes and improvements.

Realme X Lite/Realme 3 Pro

The Chinese Realme 3 Pro variant gets the realme Link app so it doesn’t have to be installed separately for the Realme Buds Air, etc. Also, the recording to text feature has been added to the Realme recorder app which makes it easier to convert voice samples to text.

Realme 3 Pro is known as Realme X Lite in China.

However, it must be noted that this update is currently unavailable for the Global and Indian Realme X Lite variants. But once it’s out, a similar changelog can be expected for Realme 3 Pro.

Nevertheless, users of the Global and Indian Realme X Lite variants can soon expect the July security update. This is because Realme X Lite and Realme 3 Pro are virtually identical. So, it is safe to assume that both devices will get the same update with minor changes.

Meanwhile, we’ll update this story once the July security update is live for the Global and Indian Realme 3 Pro. So, stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.


As promised, the actual Realme 3 Pro July update is now live as version C.07, up from the June patch that came as version C.06. For some reason, though, the changelog is not as extensive as that of its Chinese counterpart. Check it out below:
