Realme 9 Software Update:

Realme has begun the phased rollout of the June 2022 Security Patch for the Realme 9 model. The latest software update comes with the build number RMX3521_11_A.16, which is probably 2nd update carrying the same changelog as the previous update along with internal patch fixes

Realme 9 was released in April 2022, with Android 12 out-of-the-box.

As mentioned this software update is a follow-up to the old A.15 build June 2022 Security Patch, and it is reported as the 2nd update by Realme Support. We think the contents of this update are the same as before with better stability or broken links in the update.
