Bad news for Realme Pad owners, tablet won’t get Android 12 update

The tablet will continue to receive security and performance patches.

Highlights
  • Realme Pad will not get the Android 12 update.
  • The tablet device will continue to receive security and performance updates throughout the software cycle.
  • Key specs include a 10.4-inch display, MediaTek Helio G80, a 7100mAh battery and Android 11 OS.

Realme Pad is the company’s first-ever tablet device and it is priced affordably in comparison to Samsung tablets. It comes with Dolby Atmos support, a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, and a decent 7,100mAh battery. The tablet was launched running Android 11 based Realme UI skin on top, though it was largely stock Android. Now, here comes a disappointment to Realme tablet users. In the Realme Community FAQ, the company has confirmed the Realme Pad will not be updated to Android 12 but will continue to get security and performance updates throughout its software cycle. This is a huge letdown and comes at a time when the company is planning on introducing more tablets down the year.

Realme fans who purchased the tablet in anticipation that it would get an Android 12 update sometime in the near future will be disappointed and also raises the question of the update availability to upcoming tablets. When brands like Nokia (HMD Global) and Samsung are pushing (promised to push) OS updates to their tablet devices, ignoring updates to their first tablet doesn’t bode well on Realme’s part. We hope things change with its upcoming releases.
