A realme opened this Thursday (04) the early access program to Android 13 for users of the GT 2 Pro, your top of the line cell phone released in May in Brazil. The beginning of this stage of testing with the new version of the operating system allows more users to experience the expected novelties, such as support for cell phone unlocking by smartwatch.
Global users will be able to test the new features of Android 13 when registering for the Early Access program form, but it is worth noting that a limited number of cell phones will receive the software first. Although the manufacturer does not mention it, the operating system will be the basis of Realm UI 4.0, its new user interface.
The company’s Chinese forum is more specific and details that 500 realme GT 2 Pro users will have access to realme UI 4.0. This is the initial version for testing that will still receive several optimizations and changes before being released to all users.
To update, you need to have a 60% battery charge and make sure your phone is running the latest UI version — “RMX3301_11.A.16” or “RMX3301_11.A.17”. Go to “Settings” and go to “Software Update”. Then, tap the gear icon, “Trial version” and finally “Early Access”.
It is always worth remembering that backing up your data is essential before any update—especially in updates in the testing phase. O realme GT 2 Pro is the first mobile to join the program early access, but it is possible that other flagships of the brand will become eligible for public testing soon.
On a related note, Samsung and Xiaomi began public testing with the One UI 5.0 and MIUI 13.1, respectively. Android 13 must be released in September.
