Realme Pad to Receive Android 12 Update in Q3 2022

Realme has also announced three years of security patch updates for the tablet.


Realme, a couple of weeks ago, said that the Realme Pad will not receive Android 12 update. The brand faced a little backlash from the Realme Pad users over this since the Realme Pad is barely 5 months old. Realme seems to have reconsidered their decision in a new development, it has now revealed that the Realme Pad will indeed get Android 12 update.

Android 12 Coming to Realme Pad After All

As per a new announcement, Realme plans to roll out the Android 12 update for the Realme Pad sometime in Q3, 2022. Realme Vice President, Madhav Sheth took to social media channels to make an announcement for the same.

To those unaware, the Chinese tech giant had entered into the Android tablet segment back in September 2021 with the Realme Pad. The multimedia-focused Realme Pad was well-received as it offers a good balance in terms of features and price. Since the Realme Pad is now eligible to get Android 12 update, people considering buying it won’t have to worry about the updates.

Also, the company has announced three years of security patch updates for the tablet. However, the Android 12 update for the Realme Pad is still about 6 months away, and by that time Android 13 might hit devices as well.
