Based on Android 12, Realme UI 3.0 brings a wide variety of improvements, improved security and privacy, and a smoother experience. This version of the proprietary shell was introduced back in October last year; and for the past six months the company has been busy distributing it. It goes very slowly.
Before a stable build sees the light of day, Realme devices will have to go through a beta testing program that has recently added new members. The company has posted a list of devices that will receive the Realme UI 3.0 beta in the second quarter of this year. The new version of the shell in its beta version will reach Realme X7 5G, Realme 9i, Realme X3, Realme X3 SuperZoom, Realme 8 5G, Realme 8s 5G, Realme 9 5G, Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Realme Narzo 30 5G.
