In contrast, many devices are still waiting for the first OS update. Realme is unbelievably popular for its constant software updates. But unfortunately, some devices were crossed out eligible to receive an Android 10 update.
Realme 1 and Realme U1 released with Android 8.1. Both the devices did receive an Android 9 (Pie) update, which was the first OS update. Also, that was the final.
Realme also officially confirmed that Realme 1 and Realme U1 will not receive an Android 10 OS update. Realme decided to roll out the Realme UI update for these devices but the Realme UI is based on Android 10. So, these devices based on Android Pie neither received Realme UI update nor Android 10.
Realme UI is developed and based on Android 10 Only. So, devices like Realme 1, 2 U1 and C1 can’t be updated to Realme UI. And developing Realme UI on Android 9 is not in the plans.
