Apart from Google, its OEM partners have now also started offering users a chance to test out the next Android update on select devices in its lineup. Realme X50 Pro users were lucky to get access to the Android 11 Beta 1 update earlier in June.

Realme UI 2.0 Is Coming Soon
Apart from the said announcement, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth took to Twitter last night to sneakily reveal that Realme UI 2.0 is coming very soon. The tweet carries an image, showing off the Realme X50 Pro running Android 11 and the Realme UI 2.0 skin. You will have to zoom in quite a bit to see the text on the screen. But don’t worry, we have already done the same for you below.
The tweet’s caption reads: “In the last 2 years, we have introduced many Industry-first technologies and features that clearly make us stand apart. I know you guys love it, there is more in store for you!” Sheth is talking about the Android 11 update coming to Realme X50 Pro, which will also give users a first look at some of the Realme UI 2.0 features.
There is currently no information about the new features we can expect to see from the company’s second-gen software skin. Realme UI was a major step in the right direction though and we expect the Chinese giant to greatly improve on it.
