According to the company’s info, the Realme 3 Pro, XT, X, 5 Pro, and X2 Pro will get Android 10-based ColorOS 7 update by the Q1 2020. Then, the company will focus in giving the same treatment to Realme 3, 3i, 5, 5s and 2 Pro. Lastly on the list, we have the Realme C2 which will receive the update by the third quarter of 2020.
The company opened beta recruitment for the owners of its X2 Pro flagship. The new update will bring a close-to-vanilla Android approach for Realme smartphones, being slightly different than what we will see in Oppo handsets. At the time of the announcement, Realme didn’t reveal whether the update would come for older devices. Today, however, sad news came from the company’s official account on Twitter.
We would like to inform you that ColorOS 7 based on Android 10 update will not be rolled out for realme 1/ realme U1/ realme C1/ realme 2.

The Android 10 release won’t reach the Realme 1, Realme 2, Realme U1 and Realme C1. These devices originally came with Android 8.1 Oreo and later were updated to Android 9 Pie. While larger OEMS usually provide two major updates from flagship smartphones, devices in the mid to budget segment always lag behind.
