Vivo in May 2020 started the construction of a 32-story high-rise tower that will house its headquarters once completed in fall 2025. The tower, according to reports, will accommodate close to 6,000 employees, hopefully among them some of the company’s best software developers.
The Chinese smartphone vendor lags behind several others when it comes to timely software development. Sure, Vivo smartphones are receiving the update to Funtouch OS 10 based on Android 10. Matter of fact, a good number have already bagged the update. More details here.
But the OS is rolling out at a time when the newest Android 11 is already available in beta. To ensure that it doesn’t lag behind when the stable rollout begins, Vivo has already opened the beta program for developers who want to optimize their apps ahead of the Funtouch OS 11 rollout.
Since this is an early (pre-release) version of the software, only a limited set of Vivo smartphones can be upgraded to Android 11 so far.
Here, we bring you this list (table) of devices, and to ensure you don’t miss a thing, we will update it regularly whenever a new Vivo smartphone gets the beta or stable Funtouch OS 11 update.
|Device/Android 11 update||BETA||STABLE|
|Vivo iQOO 3 4G||Released||—|
|Vivo iQOO 3 5G||Released||—|
|Vivo NEX 3S||Released||—|
Like most Android vendors, Vivo is striving to deliver at least two OS updates to some of its phones with a few exceptions that are stuck on a single OS update. And we expect that some of the existing handsets will get updated to Android 11 as well. The possible list of eligible devices is here.
