[Updated] Vivo S1 Pro Android 10 (Funtouch OS 10) beta update released

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on May 27) follows:

Vivo announced back in February 2020 that coronavirus outbreak was the reason development of Funtouch OS 10 update had delayed to begin.

The Chinese company wasn’t the only smartphone vendor whose software update plans were jeopardized by the pandemic. As a result, several Vivo smartphones haven’t seen the stable version of the Android 10-based firmware to date.

So far, the update is available for the Vivo V17 and V17 Pro in stable form, with a huge chunk of the remaining eligible Vivo phones still testing the beta version, among them Vivo Z5X, Vivo X30 Pro, Vivo S5, Vivo NEX series, Vivo S1, and now the Vivo S1 Pro.

The Vivo S1 and Vivo S1 Pro Android 10 beta updates were expected in late June. But the company surprised S1 owners with an early rollout not long ago and now it’s time for the latter to join the party. For now, though, the update is limited to the Chinese market.

The airborne update is rolling out as software version 6.10.0 and weighs in at a huge 3.68GB, so be sure that you have a stable Wi-Fi connection to download and install the new OS.

Since the incoming Vivo S1 Pro Android 10 update is still beta software, it isn’t suitable for use as a daily driver. Unless you have another phone, installing this software on your main phone isn’t recommended.
