Realme has started rolling out Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 for Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro smartphones. It is the stable rollout of the build after a few weeks of open beta testing. These are the newest smartphones from the company that is now receiving the taste of the latest Android experience.
The Realme 7 Pro Android 11 update bears the build number RMX2170_11.C.20 and for Realme 6 Pro users, the build number is RMX2061_11.C.15 for the software. It is an over-the-air release and will become available to select users at random at the beginning. If there are no major issues affecting the user experience, it will be expanded to the rest of the users.
This is the reason we would suggest you be patient if you are not receiving the update already. You can check for the update availability by visiting the system settings and then the update section.
