Vivo has announced a list of smartphones that will receive Android 8.0 Oreo update within the next few days. The company revealed that Android 8.0 Oreo will be pushed to Vivo X20, Vivo X20 Plus, Vivo X9s, Vivo XPlay 6, Vivo X9, Vivo X9s Plus and Vivo X9 Plus.
Even though the company disclosed the news on its forum, we don’t have any estimated timeframe for the launch of the update. However, the Vivo X20 smartphone will receive the update starting April 2018. Interestingly, the Vivo branded smartphones available in India are not included on the list. Hence, Vivo customers based in India will not be able to experience Android Oreo on their smartphones. We expect the company to roll out Oreo update for the devices in India by the end of 2018.
The companies like Oppo, Vivo usually doesn’t push updates quite often. Xiaomi has upped the ante by pushing MIUI 9 update to a wide range of smartphones and tablets. Based on reports, nearly 40+ devices are expected to receive MIUI 9 updates.
According to industry analysts, the smartphone manufacturers will push regular updates to the devices after two years. The time required to design, develop and test is a challenging factor. Nowadays, manufacturers are adopting two levels of the testing process such as beta and final testing. Hence, you should carefully choose a smartphone to avoid disappointment. It is advisable to choose a smartphone with a customized UI such as MIUI, FunTouch etc. Normally, the stock Android devices will not receive any updates.
In addition to Android Oreo, Vivo will unveil a refreshed version of FunTouch OS. From our point of view, Vivo will launch the update to select above devices in China to gather feedback and then extend to other parts of the world. This will ensure flawless performance.
After the installation of Android 8.0 Oreo update, your Vivo update will provide support for autofill, picture-in-picture mode, new emojis, WiFi assistant, notifications dots. Moreover, the devices will have an improved booting time when compared to Android Nougat.
