[Updated] Vivo X30 Funtouch OS 10 (Android 10) update delayed due to missing support for Samsung drivers?
u>This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (March 9) follows:
More and more devices continue to get updated to Android 10 that was first unveiled back in September 2019. We have seen mainstream companies like Samsung and Huawei rolling out the same to its devices, to obscure ones like ASUS.
Vivo, not to be left behind, is also hard at work, trying to build and push out Android 10 to its devices. One such device that has been waiting for Android 10 is the Vivo X30.
The Vivo X30 was first unveiled back in December last year, running FuntouchOS 10.0 which is based on Android 9. The device still stands at that version of Android to date as it is yet to receive Android 10.
Recently, we saw Vivo revealing its Android 10 roadmap, detailing how the company plans to roll out Android 10 to its line of eligible devices. You can read more about that here. Conspicuously missing from the list, was Vivo X30 and its beefier sibling, the V30 Pro.
The company did not exactly state why this was the case, why a device launched just a few months ago was not mentioned in its plans to update its devices to Android 10.
This sent the rumor mills turning and no one seems to have a concrete reason or answer to this question. Until now.
A user on the Vivo forum offers an interesting perspective to explain why Android 10 has not arrived on the Vivo X30. According to the user, the update appears to be delayed because it’s yet to receive the support for Samsung drivers.
That said, we can not independently substantiate the accuracy of these claims and as such, you might want to take his opinion with a pinch of salt.
As it stands, it remains unclear what the next course of action is for this device and the likelihood of it receiving an update to Android 10 soon, if at all.
We shall keep an eye on this story and update as, and when we get more info.
