Last month, Realme said that it would offer Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0’s early access to Realme 9i users in May, and keeping its promise, the company has announced the Realme UI 3.0 early access program for the Snapdragon 680-powered smartphone.
Realme 9i users can participate in the Realme UI 3.0 early access program by heading to the Settings > Software Update menu, then tapping on Trial version > Apply Now, and submitting the required details. If your application is accepted, you will receive an update.
But, do note that there are only 1,000 slots available, so you might want to hurry if you can’t wait to get a taste of Android 12 and Realme UI 3.0 on your Realme 9i. It’s also worth mentioning that early access software often contains bugs that could hamper the user experience, so it’s best avoided on your primary device.
If you still want to get early access, make sure your Realme 9i has at least 60% battery and 10GB of storage available before installing the update. The smartphone should also run a stable version of Realme UI with build number RMX3491_11.A.13 or RMX3491_11.A.14.
In addition to announcing the Realme UI 3.0 early access program for Realme 9i, Realme also announced the Realme UI 3.0 open beta program for the Realme 8i. The procedure to enroll in the open beta program is the same as participating in 9i’s early access program. But, the 8i needs to have 5GB of storage available instead of 10GB, while the battery level should be at least 60%. The required Realme UI build version the phone should be running is RMX3151_11.A.41.
However, the open beta build for the 8i could also have bugs, so avoid installing it on your primary device.
Realme says the open beta version will be chosen as the stable version and rolled out to all users without any difference. And, those who are already a part of the Realme UI 3.0 early access program for 8i don’t have to apply for the open beta program since they will directly receive the open beta build later.
