From November 2022 onwards, the Narzo devices will also be eligible for the Android 13 upgrade, according to the roadmap.

For the unversed, the Realme Narzo Pro 5G was launched in mid-2022 with Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12 OS out of the box.

Now, Realme is seeding the Early Access version, which is essentially a beta build, to the Narzo 50 Pro 5G. But should you upgrade from a stable Android 12 to a beta Android 13 OS? What's the procedure to sign up for the Early Access version? Let's find out.
