New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on February 27, 2021) follows:
The Vivo X50 and Vivo X50 Pro launched last year with Android 10 pre-installed alongside the company’s Funtouch OS 10.5 skin and have been in line to receive the update to Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11 on top.
Recently, we reported that the company began the greyscale test for Android 11 on the Vivo X50 thus indicating that the stable update would go live for the general public soon.
As for the Vivo X50 Pro, the company started beta testing Android 11 on the device early last month.
Cut to now, Vivo Russia on Twitter has announced that the company has started sending out Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11 to the X50 and X50 Pro.
The tweet also highlights that the update is available for the Vivo V20 SE which got the update a few days earlier. More on that here.
Now that the Android 11 update with Funtouch OS 11 has begun rolling out to Vivo X50 and X50 Pro users in Russia, it’s likely that we’ll see the stable update go live in other countries soon.
At present, we have not got our hands on a changelog for the update and have not yet come across any reports from users claiming to have received the new firmware.
That said, in the same tweet, the company has also confirmed that the Vivo V17, V17 Neo, Y19, Y11, Y12, V15 Pro, and V15 are next in line to bag the Android 11-based Funtouch OS 11 software update.
Vivo has already rolled out its Funtouch OS 11 skin to a handful of smartphones and is expected to release the new Android version to a bunch of other eligible smartphones over the next few months.
You can head to our dedicated tracker to know the status of Funtouch OS 11 or Android 11 for all eligible devices from the company.
