Oppo’s spin-off Realme has started the Android 13 early access program for two of its phones – Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro+ 5G. Both of them are the first mid-range smartphones to get a taste of the Android 13 OS. The testing of the latest software has gone live for a few GT-series handsets and now it’s time for other smartphones to get the update.
Realme has shared the info about the early access program on its community forum for Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro+. According to the details, there will be a limited number of slots in the early access program. Currently, the new update has gone live in India, and more regions are expected to receive the update in the coming days and weeks.
