Realme, ever since its birth, has been leveling up its game on the software front and has built a good reputation among its users.
The company was quick to come up with an Android 11 update roadmap. Having such a huge smartphone portfolio, it becomes a tedious task to deliver updates expeditiously.
But to everyone’s surprise, the young brand hasn’t let anyone down.
Coming to Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0, although the company has managed to seed this update to a good number of devices, it has mostly remained limited to a small group of people as a beta update. Only the flagship Realme X50 Pro enjoyed the stable version.
Well, it’s about time we start witnessing a wider rollout of the stable version across a bunch of other devices as well.
Realme, in a recent announcement, has revealed that the stable Android 11 program for Narzo 20 has kicked off. The updated UI version is RMX2193_11.C.06.
The stable Android 11 for the Narzo 20 brings along the following new additions.

FYI, Narzo 20 was among the first few devices to receive the Android 11 update back in November last year. And now, it becomes the second device after Realme X50 Pro to have received the stable Android 11 update.
Time to rejoice as an update lies in your device’s update center, waiting to be installed. For those who still have a dormant update center, don’t worry, as it’s a staged rollout and may take some time to reach out to the masses.
OEMs do this to ensure if in case anything breaks, it doesn’t affect the major chunk. As soon as the company is sure about its stability, you’ll find a notification of the update.
If history is anything to go by, Realme Narzo 20 users will not have to wait more than a few weeks to be part of the wider rollout of the stable Android 11 update.
Realme has also bundled a rollback package in the same announcement thread. If for any reason, you miss the older version, you have the liberty to roll back to Android 10.
