vivo V19 is receiving Android 11-based Funtouch OS 11 update in India


Chinese smartphone maker vivo launched the vivo V19 in India in mid-May. The handset arrived with Funtouch OS 10 based on Android 10. Now, over eight months after its release, the phone is receiving its first major update in the form of Android 11-based Funtocuh OS 11.

Earlier last month, vivo revealed Funtouch OS 11 update rollout plan for India. According to the schedule, the company was supposed to release the Android 11 update for vivo V19 at the end of January 2021.

Hence, the update is finally live for certain users in the country. According to PiunikaWeb, it comes with build number vivo rev 6.71.16 and weighs a whopping 3.76GB in size.

For those unaware, the brand’s update plan clearly states that it is meant only for beta version. But interestingly, random users have begun to get the update already. This suggests that vivo’s beta builds are similar to Xiaomi

’s ‘Stable Beta’ builds.

That means the currently rolling out build is basically stable but since it is being pushed in batches for safety reasons, vivo might be considering it beta. Anyway, if you happen to own vivo V19 and have received this OTA update on your device, then make sure to download and install it to experience new UI and features.


Having said that, it is a shame that vivo has reserved its brand-new OriginOS for its high-end smartphones. It would have been nice if the company had made it available for the mid-rangers as well.
