Realme recently rolled out an early access programme for its Android 10 based Realme UI for its Realme 2 Pro. The phone has now started receiving Android update with Realme UI based on Android 10. The Realme 2 Pro was launched back in September 2018 with ColorOS 5.2 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and it later received ColorOS 6 update with Android 9 Pie last year.

If no critical bugs are found, the full rollout will be completed in the upcoming days.
You can check the availability of the Realme UI update on your Realme 2 Pro by going to the Settings menu.
