New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 28, 2020) follows:
It is not uncommon for OEMs to roll out system updates, only to halt and recall the said update a few days/weeks into the deployment following issues such as serious bugs. Xiaomi has been a victim of the same but it is far from the only culprit.
Recently, we saw Vivo roll out Android 10 in the form of its own in-house skin, Funtouch OS 10, to the Vivo Z1Pro.
Not too long after that, we saw reports that Vivo had pulled back the update due to bugs. While the specific bugs weren’t exactly cited by Vivo while pulling the update, the company promised to resolve them and issue a proper Android 10 update to the Vivo Z1 Pro.
Today, it appears as though the issues have finally been ironed out as Vivo says that it is resuming rollout of Android 10 to the said devices. The new Funtouch OS 10 build for the Vivo Z1 Pro bears software version rev. 6.10.2. This build is going out to users who are currently running rev 6.10.1.
In a Twitter response to a user query on Android 10 for the Vivo Z1Pro, Vivo India’s official handle says;
The Android 10 issue has been fixed in vivo Z1Pro handset, so we have released new version(6.10.2) for with 6.10.1 version. Kindly wait for some time, you will get a notification soon.
This, no-doubt, comes as good news to users of the Vivo Z1 Pro who have been on edge as to when exactly their devices are set to receive Android 10. This, especially bearing in mind that a good number of Vivo devices are yet to get updated to Android 10.
We can only hope that this new release is bug-free and that OEMs strive to vigorously test new updates before they are seeded out to users.
