Realme, as a smartphone manufacturer, has been putting a surprisingly decent amount of focus on Android updates despite the fact that their phones run a fairly heavy OEM UX skin (first ColorOS, now Realme UI). Not only have they managed to roll out Android 10 to a large number of devices by now, but we’ve also seen them roll out security updates to these phones on a fairly regular basis. The latest smartphones to receive security updates include the Realme X, the Realme XT, the Realme 5 Pro, the Realme 5i, and the lower-end Realme C2.
