Android Q Beta Realme 3 Pro

At the I/O 2019 conference, Google announced a new developer beta version of Android Q. Even though this is the third beta version, some smartphone makers are simply referring to it as Android Q Beta. As part of the announcement, Google revealed that the Android Q Beta is now available on a total of 21 smartphones which includes the Google Pixel lineup. This means the beta version is available on 15 non-Google smartphones across 12 different smartphone brands and sub-brands.

The list of non-Google devices includes a number of recently launched devices including LG G8 ThinQ, Oppo Reno, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, and even the Realme 3 Pro. Given that we have the Realme 3 Pro with us that we reviewed recently and that it is available on sale in the Indian market, we thought about installing the new Android Q Beta on the device. It is worth noting that Realme 3 Pro is not the only Android Q Beta supported smartphone in the Indian market but it sure is the cheapest.

However, before we start with the instructions to install the Beta on the device, it is worth noting that Android Q Beta is still in testing stages and not as stable as the official ColorOS 6 Operating System that comes with Realme 3 Pro. We do not recommend this installation process for users who have little to no experience in flashing custom ROMs on Android devices. This process will remove all the data from your smartphone so it is essential that you take a backup of all the important data present on your Realme 3 Pro smartphone.
