The company has expanded its Early Access program for several other devices as well. The new list includes Realme X3, Realme X3 SuperZoom, Realme 6, Realme X2, Realme C12, and Realme C15.

Last year smartphone maker Realme introduced its Realme UI 2.0 that was based on Android 11. The company also updated its Realme X50 Pro smartphone with the new operating system, in addition to revealing a bunch of devices that were included in the Early Access program for the new UI. The list included Realme 7 Pro, Realme 7, Realme Narzo 20 Pro, Realme 6 Pro, and Realme X2 Pro.

However now, the company has expanded its Early Access program for several other devices as well, as stated by Fonearena. The new list includes Realme X3, Realme X3 SuperZoom, Realme 6, Realme X2, Realme C12, and Realme C15.

In case you want to be a beta member, you can navigate to the Settings app > software update > tap on the Settings icon in the top right corner > trial version > apply now. Here you can submit your details and fill the form. Once done, you will receive the Realme UI 2.0 Early Access version update on the device.

It's worth mentioning that you should have at least 5GB of free storage on the handset on which you are planning to run the Realme UI 2.0 version. The device should also not be rooted. The company won't be giving access to certain features after the update as well. The Realme X3 devices won't be able to make use of Starry Mode and Pro Night mode. They might also face some camera lag when recording and playing videos in 960fps. 

For Realme X2 users, it won't be possible to use the Pro Night mode, 960fps slow motion function and DC dimming function. However, the firm says that these features will be coming back as a part of future update. 

In addition, Realme 6 users will face lags in swipe up gestures and stuttering screen in some cases. And for Realme C12 and C15, the UI will temporarily disable the swipe up gestures so the company has recommended to use the virtual button navigation instead. 

In case you want to go back to the older version, which is Android 10, Realme does provide you with that option as well. However, this will result in deletion of all the personal data from the smartphone.
