New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…
Original story (published on February 09, 2021) follows:
Various top OEMs have been working on their respective Android 11 custom skins for a few months now following the official unveiling of this new Android version back in September 2020.
We have been closely following this development and you can check out our dedicated Android 11 tracker that’s following this rollout from all major Android OEMs.
Not to be left behind, Vivo is also striving to deliver its Android 11-based custom skin, Funtouch OS 11, to its eligible devices. For a closer look at how this rollout is going, check out our Vivo Android 11 tracker.
To recall, we saw the company come out in early January with a bunch of Beta builds for its eligible devices.
Devices that received these developmental builds include the Vivo X50 Pro and an update schedule went live for the Vivo V19, Vivo V17, Vivo V15, Vivo S1, Vivo Z1x and the Vivo Z1Pro.
Fast-forward to the present day and users of the Vivo V19 in India are an excited lot as the company is reportedly rolling out the stable build of Android 11-based Funtouch OS 11 to their devices.

This update which bears software version rev 6.71.16 weighs in at a rather hefty 3.76GB and comes with Android 11 as the base and all the Funtouch OS 11 goodness on top.
With this release, the Vivo V19 joins the ever-growing list of devices from this Chinese OEM that have bagged this much-awaited new version of Android.
It will also be interesting to see just how soon Vivo manages to roll out this build to other eligible devices in its portfolio, especially the devices listed in the company’s recently published update schedule.
We shall continue to keep an eye on this story and update as and when we get more development so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
Update 1 (February 09)
13:40 pm (IST): It seems that not everyone has received the Android 11 update in India as it is currently under grayscale testing. This means it is being rolled out to select users for now.
Update 2 (March 3)
