Since Google revealed all of its plans for the next Android 12 update, today has been one of the most important days of the year for Android fans. Along with the announcement, Google launched a beta program for the new Android version, in which some Android OEMs will participate with a limited number of smartphones. Realme has been chosen as one of the first smartphones to receive Android 12, and the Realme GT has been chosen for this special task. According to the company’s press release, Chinese developers will be able to test the beta starting today. The beta is currently based on Realme UI 2.0, but the company plans to release it alongside its Realme UI 3.0 skin once it is stable.
Realme chose its flagship Realme X50 Pro as the first device eligible for Android 11 last year. Now it’s time for the company’s first flagship, the 2021 model, to get the same treatment. In early March, the Realme GT was unveiled in China, boasting impressive specifications and a low price. Unfortunately, the device has yet to make its way to international markets, but developers in China will be able to try out some of the new features in Android 12. We’re especially interested in seeing how Realme implements some of the new features, such as the native theming engine.
With Android 12, Google has introduced a slew of new features. Material You has a lot of new features, including a built-in smart theming engine, and the company is also revamping its Widgets after a long time. The new upcoming version also includes numerous security and privacy enhancements. Companies like Realme, we’re confident, will adapt and benefit from these changes.
REALME UI 3.0 WILL BRING ANDROID 12 TO REALME DEVICES IN THE FUTURE
Realme UI 2.0, based on Android 11, is currently being rolled out to many of the company’s mid-range smartphones. However, the company may continue to develop Android 12 in a strict manner while Google makes final adjustments for the final release. More betas will be released in the coming months before the stable release in September 2021, according to Google. The Realme GT is expected to follow these betas as well.
The Realme GT is a powerful smartphone from Realme. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. The device has a triple-camera setup, with the main camera being 64MP. It also has a built-in fingerprint scanner and a 120Hz AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution.
