Realme GT 2 Pro starts receiving Android 13 early access 

The Realme GT 2 Pro debuted earlier in April this year. It shipped with Realme U 3.0 based on Android 12 OS. The next-generation Android 13 offers more customisations along with enhanced security and privacy. In a community forum post, Realme warns that the early access update is not worth installing on the GT 2 Pro if it’s your daily driver. For those wanting to install and experience the Android 13 version, they have to make sure that the device is not rooted. Additionally, users have to back up their personal data to avoid any loss. Some third-party apps may not be compatible with Android 13, therefore updating apps to the latest version should be avoided. 

Realme says that there should be more than 10GB of storage space on the GT 2 Pro. The early access update may also have an unpredictable impact on the device and affect daily usage. 

Realme GT 2 Pro Android 13 early access application: how to join

To get the Android 13 early access update, users need to follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Ensure that the Realme GT 2 Pro has more than 60 per cent battery
  • Update your device to the required UI version: RMX3301_11.A.16/ RMX3301_11.A.17
  •  Apple for the early access via the software update application channel

To complete the process in the software update app, users need to head to Settings> Software Update> Tap on the settings icon in the top right corner> Trial Versio> Apply Now> Submit your details. Realme will review the application and then push the early access update to the user’s device. 

Beta testers who are not satisfied with the update can roll back to Android 12 stable OS. However, this process will wipe out the internal storage data and the unit cannot be enrolled back in the beta channel again. In case, users lose pre-installed apps on the GT 2 Pro, they need to manually update to the latest Realme UI 3.0 version. 

To do this:

  • Download this (link) rollback package onto your phone
  • Locate and install the rollback package by heading to Settings> About phone> Click on the “realme UI 3.0” banner at the top> Click on the three dots in the top right corner> Local install> Find and tap the rollback package to roll back to the previous version.
