Realme announced a few weeks ago that the Realme Pad will not be getting the Android 12 update. Since the Realme Pad is just 5 months old, the brand has received some backlash from Realme Pad consumers.
In a recent development, Realme appears to have revised their decision, revealing that the Realme Pad would actually receive the Android 12 update.

To those who are unaware, the Chinese tech giant joined the Android tablet market with the Realme Pad in September 2021. The multimedia-focused Realme Pad was well-received because it strikes a solid price-to-feature ratio.
People considering owning the Realme Pad won’t have to worry about updates now that it’s compatible for Android 12.
The tablet will also receive three years of security patch updates, according to the firm. Nevertheless, the Realme Pad’s Android 12 update is still a few months away, and Android 13 could be available around then.
