We can confirm that this update has arrived on our Realme X3 SuperZoom review unit, while GSMArena reports that the Realme X3 is also receiving the same update. It is best to install the update as soon as it arrives on your devices because it not only brings a few important fixes, but also the latest June 2020 security patch. Check for the update manually in Settings if you haven't already received a notification.
As the devices were launched in India just a few days ago, not many users should have them in their hands yet. The Realme X3 SuperZoom and Realme X3 haven't gone on sale yet, and are currently up for pre-bookings only. The first sale is set for June 30 on Flipkart and Realme.com. Hence, the updates are meant only for reviewers and early adopters.
