Highlights

  • Realme X50 Pro 5G Android 11 Beta update is now available.
  • It has many bugs and is not stable for regular users right now.
  • Realme X50 Pro 5G was launched in India back in February.

Realme X50 Pro is now receiving the Android 11 Beta build about a month after Google released it for Pixel phones initially. The flagship smartphone from Realme is ready to run the Android 11-based Realme UI, the company has announced via a post on the community forum. This means there will be less of stock Android features in the latest build. Since it is a beta build, Realme says it is recommended for testers as most features might not be stable and could impact the device.

Realme is listing the issues the new Android 11 Beta build will pose to testers. For example, the automatic timing is not working and testers might have to set the timing on the phone manually and some parts of the interface might look "less than desirable." There are also several stability issues with the update, the post mentions. No data will be retained during the update process, which means the tester will need to back up the data on the device before initiating the update process.

The Android 11 Beta is meant strictly for Realme X50 Pro 5G, which was launched in India back in February. The device should be running Android 10 version RMX2076PU_11.A.25 before the Android 11 Beta update can be patched in. This forum post has links to both Android 10 version, Android 11 Beta, along with a process for testers to roll back to Android 10 in case they do not like the beta version.

How to download and install Android 11 Beta on Realme X50 Pro 5G?

  • Download the Android 11 Beta package from the community forum post on Realme website. The update can either be downloaded on the phone or on a computer. In the latter case, the update will need to be transferred to the device.
  • Beforehand, it should be ensured the device has at least 30 per cent battery.
  • Now, open the File Manager app on the device and locate the firmware option and tap on it. Then an alert reading that the data will be wiped up will pop up.
  • The next step involves giving consent to warnings and finally hit the Upgrade Now button at the final stage.
  • The device will reboot multiple times during the update process and when it is complete, you will be welcomed with the start screen.

The rollback steps are also given on the post, in case the Android 11 Beta experience is not desirable.
