It’s worth noting that Realme has maintained a decent update schedule for its devices over the last couple of weeks. The company has previously released updates for the Realme 3 Pro and the Realme X, featuring the new dark mode and Android security patches. It has also released updates for the Realme 5 and Realme 2 Pro, packing in almost all the same features. Most recently, it released updates for the Realme XT and the Realme 3/3i.
Along with the updates, Realme has also released kernel sources for a couple of its devices. Last month, it released the kernel sources for the Realme XT, 5 and 5 Pro. And now, with the latest update, the company has also released the kernel sources for the Realme X2, even though the device was just launched last month. The timely kernel source release will kickstart third-party development for the Realme X2 and we expect to see new custom ROMs and kernels for the device in the coming weeks.
