The vivo Y12 is a sub-₹15,000 budget smartphone targeted at offline channels. Hence, its specs are mediocre but it features a striking design. Interestingly, the phone is still on sale nearly two years after its release.

It is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and was announced with Funtouch OS 9 (Android 9.0 Pie). For those unaware, vivo is not known for proving platform updates. Most of its phones only get a single Android update.

Hence, no one would have thought that this handset will be getting the Android 11 (Funtouch OS 11) update after the Funtouch OS 10 (Android 10) update last year.

According to a report by PiunikaWeb

, the vivo Y12 Android 11 update is currently under greyscale testing. That means it is only available for a select few users. If these early adopters don’t face any major issues, the update will be made available for more users in the coming days.

That said, the software build that is live right now comes with build number vivo rev 6.71.46. Interestingly, it weighs a whopping 3.68GB in size. Hence, users are advised to have enough free space before hitting the ‘Download and Install’ button.
