vivo reveals Funtouch OS 11 (Android 11) update schedule for India


Chinese smartphone makers are known for updating their devices to the latest version of Android slowly. But that narrative began to change tides in the past couple of years. A large number of heavy-skinned handsets from Xiaomi (MIUI) and OPPO (ColorOS) are already on Android 11. Unfortunately, this cannot be said for vivo as the OEM has shared the list of eligible phones and the rollout schedule for Funtouch OS 11 only now.

In case you have forgotten, back in November, vivo announced OriginOS as its new operating system for smartphones. The company is currently running an open beta program in its home country China. But for India, its devices will be updated to Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 11 instead.

We think this should be the case for other regions as well. Anyway, OriginOS is meant for high-end smartphones and it is basically Funtouch OS 11 with additional UI elements. Since vivo is known for mid-range and budget handsets, it makes sense for the company to provide a light OS for a better experience on lower hardware.

That said, here’s the list of eligible phones for Funtouch OS 11 in India along with their update rollout timeline.

Unsurprisingly, the list only includes a few phones. Apart from these handsets, vivo V20 Pro 5G has already received the update, whereas vivo V20 debuted with Funtouchh OS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.

Having said that, it is worth noting that the above-mentioned timeline is meant for beta rollout. Hence, the actual stable release for these devices will take more time.
