Late September 2020, Chinese smartphone maker realme launched realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 in late September 2020. Just like the previous version, the latest iteration of the company’s operating system is based on OPPO ColorOS, version 11 to be exact. So far, the company has only released stable update for a single device – realme X50 Pro. However, multiple phones have received beta builds. Now, six more handsets have been added to the beta program.
Every manufacturer has a different name for their beta program. Hence, realme tagged its own ‘Early Access’. When the brand officially announced realme UI 2.0 in the second half of last year, it also revealed an update timeline for all the eligible smartphones.
The company has been recruiting beta teasers for its devices, as per the schedule. Therefore, following the timeline, it has now opened beta registrations for the below-listed phones as part of the January 2021 quota.

Interested users of the above-mentioned handsets can head over to Settings > Software Update > Gear Icon > Trial Version > Apply Now and submit details to enroll in the initiative. If they get selected, they will be receiving the beta update via OTA.
That said, for some reason, any user wants to downgrade to the stable channel, they can do it by downloading and installing the appropriate rollback file. However, it is worth noting that this process will format their smartphone’s internal storage and they won’t be able to rejoin the Early Access program.
With all that being said, we do not know when realme will begin to seed stable builds for these phones. Because even the previous batch is yet to receive the stable update.
