Unlike Vivo V20, V20 Pro 5G is getting the Android 11 via OTA update in India


Vivo launched the Vivo V20 Pro 5G in India a few days back. The device is priced at ₹29,990($407). If you recall, Vivo announced that the non-Pro Vivo V20 will be the first device to have Android 11 pre-installed. Hence, one would naturally think that the Pro version should have it too. However, it launched with Android 10 and now is getting the Android 11 via an OTA update.

Vivo V20 Pro 5G India launch soon

As reported by GSMArena, Vivo V20 Pro 5G is getting the Android 11 OTA update weighing 3.6GB in India. Titled Vivo rev 6.70.8, the build number is PD2020F_EX_A_6.70.8 and bundles November 1, 2020 security patch. Considering it’s an OS upgrade, you can expect the latest Android 11’s features on the new UI. Anyway, you can take a look at the entire changelog below:

  • Added Notification History so users can view previously received notifications.
  • The newly added Priority chat function will pin corresponding notifications at the top of the notification bar.
  • Chat bubble functions for chat with an enable/disable option.

That said, the update is Over-The-Air(OTA) and hence, it should take a few days to reach everyone. Besides, the update seems to be rolling out in India and there is no info on other countries. Interestingly enough, the report mentions that the ROM changes from Funtouch OS 11 to vos OS_2.0 after the update. It could be a mistake and we will have to wait for Vivo’s clarification here as the Vivo V20 has Funtouch OS 11 instead of this.


Also, to correct our error, we had reported in our launch article that Vivo V20 Pro 5G comes with Android 11 pre-installed. However, unlike the Vivo V20, it actually comes with Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 10 out of the box. And as mentioned on the official website, the company is now rolling out the Android 11 update to the device.
