Realme launched the Realme X7 series smartphones a couple of months back in the country. The Realme X7 series consists of two smartphones – Realme X7, and Realme X7 Pro. Both these devices launched with Android 10 based Realme UI 2.0. Soon after the launch, the company announced that the Realme X7 series devices will receive Android 11 based Realme UI 2.0 Beta update starting April 2021. Now, Realme has announced Realme UI 2.0 Early Access program for the Realme X7 smartphone. Along with it, Realme has also kicked off Realme UI 2.0 Open Beta program for two Realme C-series devices – Realme C15, and Realme C12.
Realme recommends that users must have at least 5GB of free storage and the device must also not be rooted. The company also advises users to take a backup of their personal data before proceeding with the installation.
