Chinese handset maker vivo has been rolling out the Android 11 (Funtouch OS 11) update to the eligible devices in India since December 2020.

In early January, vivo shared Funtouch OS 11 (Android 11) update plan for India. According to the timeline, vivo V17, vivo V17 Pro, vivo V15 Pro, and vivo S1 are supposed to get the update in March. However, the firm only released the update for the vivo V17 and the vivo V17 Pro earlier this month.

But now, according to a report by PiunikaWeb , vivo has also started seeding the Android 11 update for vivo S1 and vivo V15 Pro before the end of March. Just like the other two smartphones, the update for this duo is also under greyscale testing.

In simpler words, the Funtouch OS 11 update for the vivo S1 and the vivo V15 Pro is only rolling out to a select few users across the country. If these early adopters don’t face any major issues, then this very same build will be seeded out to all users via OTA.

Unfortunately, we are unaware of the build number for the latest system update. But going by the previous vivo devices that have received Android 11, the update should weigh over 3GB in size.

The vivo VS1 and the vivo V15 Pro debuted with Android 9.0 based Funtouch OS 9 and were later updated to Funtouch OS 10 (Android 10

). Therefore, Funtouch OS 11 (Android 11) should be the last major update for these smartphones, as per the company’s update track record.
