When is Android 12 coming to Realme phones? 

When you get Realme UI 3.0/Android 12 will depend on which phone you have. Thankfully, Realme has already shared its full roadmap for the Early Access version of the UI so you can check when to expect the software update to land on your device. 

Of course, this is only the Early Access version, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the stable release. However, this roadmap does bode well for all of the phones on the list and we’d expect the full version to roll out in a similar order. 

The Early Access version will also give you the opportunity to try all the new Realme UI 3.0 and Android 12 features out ahead of the crowd.
