Realme made its name as one of the most relevant smartphone makers thanks to some factors. The first is that the company ships competitive smartphones with affordable prices and compelling specifications. The second is the bid for new innovative technologies. For instance, the company was one of the first to push a mid-range phone with 90Hz refresh rate displays and is a leading firm in bringing fast-charging technologies to the affordable spectrum. The third is the software support. The company has been doing a decent job in keeping its devices with smooth software and up to the date security patches. Recently, the company started a wave of updates for its devices with the December 2020 security patch. The latest device to join the bandwagon is the Realme C17.
According to reports, the Realme C17 started to receive the latest December 2020 security patch update in some East Asian countries like Indonesia and Vietnam. The update brings new features and camera optimizations. It bears RMX2101PU_11_A.27. It’s still based on Android 10 as the Realme C17 probably is several months away from an Android 11 update. After all, Realme still is running beta testing on few select devices for its Android 11-based Realme 2.0 update.
