Realme 1, U1, C1 and Realme 2 will not be updated to ColorOS 7 and Android 10
Late last month, Realme revealed the ColorOS 7 release timeline for a few of its devices. As per the schedule, the Realme 3 Pro, XT, X, 5 Pro, and X2 Pro will get ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 in the first quarter of 2020, with the Realme 3, 3i, 5, 5s, and 2 Pro to follow in the second quarter. Lastly, the Realme C2 was scheduled to get the update in Q3, 2020. The company has since opened ColorOS 7 beta recruitment for its flagship X2 Pro, with plans to roll out the stable update by January 2020. At the time, the company didn’t reveal whether the update would be released to older devices. But now, it has officially announced that the Realme 1, 2 U1, and C1 won’t be receiving the ColorOS 7 update.
As reported by The Mobile Indian, in a recent tweet Realme has confirmed that the aforementioned devices won’t be receiving the Android 10 update. The tweet came from the company’s official support handle for the Indian region in response to a query from a user. This new information falls partially in line with a post on the Realme Community from earlier this year, in which an admin stated that the Android 10 update probably won’t be released for the Realme 1 and 2 Pro. Thankfully though, the recently released update timeline confirms that the Realme 2 Pro will receive the update sometime in June next year. However, the Realme 1, 2, U1 and C1 won’t get the same treatment. These four devices were initially released with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and have already received ColorOS updates based on Android 9 Pie.
We would like to inform you that ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 update will not be rolled out for realme 1/ realme U1/ realme C1/ realme 2.

It’s worth noting that ColorOS 7 on Realme devices will offer a closer to stock Android experience, unlike the version released on OPPO devices. As of now, the company has released no further information in this regard. However, since the company has already started ColorOS 7 beta recruitment for the Realme X2 Pro we expect to learn more about these changes in the next couple of weeks.
