Realme devices get updates with April 2020 security patches


Most OEMs have their own customized version of Android, which is itself a compelling reason to maintain separate security bulletins besides Google’s monthly Android security patch updates. However, big-name companies like Samsung usually opt for a mix of monthly, quarterly, and sometimes undefined update cycle, probably because of their vast product portfolio. Interestingly, the newcomer Realme has been able to keep up a decent amount of focus on Android updates despite the fact that their phones run a quite heavy OEM skin (first ColorOS, now Realme UI). The company is now rolling out April 2020 security patches along with some improvements and bug fixes to a number of devices. We’ll be updating this article as more devices are added to the list.

Devices that have received April 2020 security patch updates:

  1. Realme 3 and Realme 3i
  2. Realme C3
  3. Realme X2
  4. Realme 6 Pro

Realme 3 and 3i

The Realme 3 and 3i are essentially the same phone, thus they even share a common firmware. The only difference between the two is in terms of processing power. While the Realme 3 is equipped with the MediaTek Helio P70 SoC, the Realme 3i is powered by a slightly less-powerful MediaTek Helio P60 SoC. The phones are getting fixes to some bugs along with the April 2020 Google security patches as part of the software version RMX1821EX_11.A.28.
