Realme 1, 5, 5s, U1, X, and X2 get updates with February 2020 security patches

Realme certainly has a fast device release schedule. After launching the flagship Realme X50 Pro (first impressions), the brand has started teasing the upcoming Realme 6 series, and live photos of the Realme 6i have appeared via FCC certification. However, it hasn’t forgotten its older phones. It started rolling out ColorOS 7-based Realme UI, powered by Android 10, to the Realme XT, and the Realme 3 Pro, while beta programs are available for the Realme X2 Pro and the Realme X2. For the most part, the company has been diligent with monthly security patch updates as well, as its record here is actually better than OnePlus. Google released the February 2020 security patches three weeks ago. Now, Realme has started rolling them out for the Realme 1, Realme 5, Realme 5s, Realme U1, Realme X2, and the Realme X.

All of the below updates are for the Indian region. The update for the Realme X is based on ColorOS 6.0, and has a download size of 2.79GB.
