Original story (from Sept 08) follows:
Google is set to officially unveil Android 11 in the next few weeks and a number of devices from its Pixel-line of devices will get updated on Day 1.
Today, Realme has announced that it is rolling out an Android 11 preview to users of the Realme X50 Pro. We’ve known about this update since way back in July. As this is a pretty early release of Android 11 for any device, Realme is limiting this rollout to only 100 seats.
