Original story (published on September 23, 2020) follows:
Realme UI 2.0 is a big update for Realme users and they are super excited to get their hands on the latest custom skin.
The OEM released the Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) preview update for Realme X50 Pro which gave us a rough look at some of the major changes in the upcoming UI update.
However, some third-party app issues present on the Realme UI 2.0 update were also disclosed by Realme along with the acknowledgement of several feature requests.
While an early access rollout roadmap was not revealed officially, avid followers took screenshots of the supposed Realme UI 2.0 update early access roadmap and shared the info on online platforms.
Now, the OEM released an even more detailed roadmap of the Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update early access but soon pulled it due to reasons unknown.
It must be noted that the previous roadmap provided a quarter-wise timeline of the Realme UI 2.0 update for early access program members. The new roadmap provides a much more detailed timeline of the update.
It is known that Realme X50 Pro is the very first device to get the early access Realme UI 2.0 update from September 24, 2020.
As per the new information, the Realme UI 2.0 early access rollout for Realme 7 Pro and Realme Narzo 20 will start from November 2020 while Realme 6 Pro, Realme 7, Realme Narzo 20 Pro, and Realme X2 Pro will join the bandwagon from December 2020.
The Realme X3, X3 SuperZoom, Realme X2, Realme 6, Realme C12, and Realme C15 early access rollout will begin in January 2021.
February 2021 will see Realme 6i and Realme Narzo 10 early access members grab the Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update followed by Realme C3 and Realme Narzo 10A in March 2021.
Moreover, the early access rollout will continue for Realme X, Realme XT, Realme 3 Pro, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme Narzo 20A in the second quarter of 2021.
It must also be noted that these dates are meant for the first round of the early access rollout in India only and all users will receive the Realme UI 2.0 stable update over a period of time. As expected, the Realme X50 Pro will be the first to get it after which the Realme 7 Pro and Narzo 20 will follow.
Since the roadmap was immediately pulled by the OEM, the information given above might be subject to change.
Nevertheless, it remains the most detailed and official timeline of the Realme UI 2.0 early access rollout for the time being.
That said, we will keep tracking this for further development and will provide updates when more information becomes available.
