The month of June is when we will see major software updates being rolled out to Realme smartphones. It will start with the Realme 1, which will get the Android Pie update based on the latest ColorOS 6. This will be followed by smartphones like the Realme 2, Realme C1, Realme 2 Pro, and the Realme U1.

The blog post will no doubt be welcomed by Realme smartphone users who have been wondering when their devices will get the latest software update. Though the company has revealed a timeframe for the roll out, Sheth does mention a couple of points for users to keep in mind.
He writes that while exact date of OTA rollout hasn’t been determined yet, the company will stick to the above timeframe. The rollout will be in phases, and not all units will receive the update on day one. Companies generally opt for a staggered roll out of updates so that no major bugs go unnoticed and affect a large number of devices.
