However, the company has not yet revealed specific timeframe but it seems that the update will be released early next year. Since the ColorOS 5.2 for Realme 2 will be rolled out in December-end, we expect the Android Pie for the same to be available by the end of the first quarter next year.

Previously, the company had confirmed that the Realme 1 will be receiving the Android Pie update and it appears that the Android 9 Pie for the Realme 1 will be released a little sooner than the Realme 2. We expect the company to release more details regarding this in the coming weeks.

The company has still not revealed anything related to the Android Pie update for the Realme 2 Pro but given that the Realme 2 is confirmed to get Android 9 Pie, the 2 Pro should also be updated to the newer version of Android.

What is to be seen is if the company plans to roll out Android Pie update for the Realme C1, which is the most affordable smartphone from the company so far. The phone was priced at Rs. 6,999 (approx. $97) in India when launched, however, it received a price hike recently and is now retailing for Rs. 7,999, roughly $111.
