This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from June 04) follows:
By virtue of smartphone units sold in Q1 2020, Vivo is the sixth leading vendor in the world with a market share of 7%. According to a Counterpoint Research, this equates to over 21 million units shipped in the said period.
Despite its solid position in the top 10 list of smartphone vendors in the world, Vivo might not be known to many people in the west. For a quick intro, Vivo is the company that pioneered the in-display fingerprint scanning tech on your current phone.
The company is also at the heart of several other smartphone innovations, but that’s not the purpose of this article. Here, we talk about the company’s software update escapades, more so the latest Vivo Android 10 update that brings Funtouch OS 10 to eligible devices.
