These vivo and iQOO smartphones will get OriginOS update


Yesterday, vivo announced its new Android skin called OriginOS. The latest mobile software by the company is totally different than its predecessor Funtouch OS. In other words, vivo overhauled its existing software with new design elements and features in such a way that one cannot believe that both were developed by the same company. That said, a day after the conference, the Chinese smartphone maker has revealed all the eligible devices along with update timeline.

According to the official Weibo account of OriginOS, a total of 33 vivo and iQOO-branded smartphones will be updated to the new operating system. The announcement post also reveals that the new software will come pre-installed on the upcoming X series flagship smartphones.

Having said that, the company has divided the rollout into the following three batches.

  • Before January 31, 2021
  • Before the Chinese New Year (February 12, 2021)
  • Q2 2021

Also, just like OPPO ColorOS 11 update schedule, this one also only denotes the starting of the Open Beta rollout. That means the final stable build will take a little bit more time to reach the end-users.

That being said, here’s the official OriginOS update roadmap shared by vivo.
