How to Install Realme UI 5.0 on Realme GT Neo 3/GT Neo 3 150W
Here are some prerequisites for installing Realme UI 5.0 on your Realme GT NEO 3 and Realme GT NEO 3 150W.
Ensure that your device is on the latest stable version of Realme UI 4.0. The exact version numbers are mentioned below:

Here are the steps to enrol in the early access program of Realme UI 5.0.
- Open the Settings app on your phone.
- Enable Developer Options. You can do this by going to About Device > Version > Version Number > Tap on Version Number 7 times.
- Now go to the ‘About device’ section, Tap on the Realme UI 4.0 banner, and then open the three-dots menu.
- Select ‘Early Access’ and then tap on the ‘Apply Now’ button.
- Your application for the early access program of Realme UI 5.0 will be submitted.
If you are selected for the program, you will then get an option to update to the Realme UI 5.0 beta version on your phone. Note that the number of seats for beta testing is very limited, and hence interested users should enroll for the program as early as possible.
Realme also says that the beta version could be unstable in some aspects, and may contain bugs. Beta users are requested to cooperate and report these bugs to the company using the on-device bug report option.
Realme also lets users leave the beta program, and roll back to the previous stable version. The user will have to manually download the software package for their respective device, and install the stable version on their phone.
However, rolling back to the stable version will result in a factory reset, and the entire data on the user’s device will get erased. The user also will not be able to re-enroll in the early access program.
Here are the download links for rollback packages.
Realme GT NEO 3: RMX3561_18.104.22.1681(EX01)
