The Android 10 update roadmap by the Chinese company also includes budget options, including the Realme 5 and Realme 3i. Android 10, which is the latest iteration in the Android family, initially released for Google Pixel phones last week. The new version brings a system-wide Dark Theme and includes enhanced privacy controls within the Settings menu.
As per Realme's roadmap, which has also been posted by the Realme account on Twitter, the Android 10 update will hit the Realme XT, Realme X, Realme 3 Pro, and Realme 5 Pro in the first quarter of 2020. Realme is also set to bring the latest update to the Realme 3, Realme 5, and Realme 3i in the second quarter of 2020, while the Realme 2 Pro would receive the update in the third quarter.
While revealing the update roadmap at the Realme XT launch in New Delhi, India CEO Madhav Sheth claimed that Realme is already one of the few brands that have provided 100 percent Android Pie update. The company, however, appears to have left some of its models from the Android 10 treat. These majorly include once highly popular Realme 1, Realme C1, Realme C2, and Realme U1.
