Original story (published on February 17, 2021) follows:

Realme has stuck to its Realme UI 2.0 Early Access rollout plans and has released the beta update for a bunch of smartphones such as the Realme 7, Realme 6 Pro, and Realme X2 to name a few.

At the time of this writing, only the Realme X50 Pro and Realme X50 Pro Player edition have bagged the stable version of the company’s new skin based on Android 11.


Although, as we had reported earlier, the company may begin seeding the stable update for some models such as the Realme 7 Pro in March.

That said, according to Realme’s plans, the Realme 7i, 6i, and Narzo 10 have been in line to get the Realme UI 2.0 Early Access update this month.
