Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro are now receiving the official version of Android 11 software. The update is available right away, meaning you can download it on your phone. The new update brings a host of new features, including chat bubbles and a rich power menu, in addition to stricter privacy controls such as app permission on a one-time basis. The Android 11 update for the Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro has so far been available in the beta version, which is why all users could not download it before. But with the stable version now out, all the users of eligible phones can download and access Android 11.
In a community forum post, Realme announced the new Android 11 update with the Realme UI 2.0 skin on top is now available. According to the post, the rollout of Realme UI 2.0 will take place in batches. This means that the update will not be available to all users of Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro at once. The rollout may take some time before all units of the eligible phones will be covered. "The update will be randomly pushed out to a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs. If no critical bugs are found, the full rollout will be completed in the upcoming days," Realme wrote in the forum post.
There are some common issues that even this stable Android 11 build for both phones. Before I tell you about them, here are the official build versions for Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro. After updating, you will see the build version RMX2170_11.C.20 on your Realme 7 Pro and build version RMX2061_11.C.15 on the Realme 6 Pro. Remember that you need to be on RMX2170PU_11.A.37 and RMX2061_11.A.49 versions, respectively, on the Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro. Okay, so now the issues.
According to Realme, your Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro will take longer to boot after the update. Realme said that "in order to improve the system operation efficiency and eliminate potential safety risks, the system will perform a series of actions such as application adaptation, background optimisation and security scanning. So, the system will occupy more CPU, memory and other resources, which may cause slight hanging and faster power consumption."
To update, go to Software update settings on your Realme 7 Pro and Realme 6 Pro. You will see the update if it is available for your unit.
