The Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update is expected to arrive for Realme 7 Pro and Realme Narzo 20 soon.
However, the update will arrive in the form of public beta and will only be available for select users.
The OEM announced the early access rollout roadmap for all Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) eligible devices back in September.
As per the timeline, Realme 7 Pro and Realme Narzo 20 are scheduled to receive the early access version of the latest custom UI in November.
While no specific date has been provided, users of the duo might soon be able to register for the early access program.
While nothing is confirmed when it comes to software updates, Realme has been doing a pretty decent job lately.
This is why the OEM might soon make an announcement for the Realme 7 Pro and Narzo 20 Realme UI 2.0 early access registration.
Users of the duo can expect a lot of features like new color schemes, Always-on-Display and Dark Mode styles, and much more.
Realme X50 Pro is the very first device to have received the latest OS update and early access recruitment for the same started back in September.
The OEM lived up to its promise and keeping that in mind, the latest custom UI should arrive for the Realme 7 Pro and Narzo 20 this month.
Realme has not made any announcements on the matter yet but users can gear up for the Realme UI 2.0 (Android 11) update because of the OEM’s recent track record.
