Realme announces ColorOS 5.2 update for its entire line-up including Realme 1

“Realme has announced that a blog post will be maintained with records of update schedule for monthly updates and what to expect in a particular month”

OPPO introduced a new online-exclusive smartphone brand called Realme in partnership with earlier this year and launched the Realme 1 (review) as its debut launch. Since then, Realme has parted ways with OPPO and launched Realme 2 (review), 2 Pro (review) and C1 (review) as an independent brand. In a bid to establish itself as a community-based brand – much like OnePlus – Realme has announced a new blog post on its forum to regularly update the status for each smartphone in its lineup.
