Vivo Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11: Here’s the List of Eligible Phones

Vivo’s next-generation custom skin will probably be called Funtouch OS 11

China and India are no strangers to Vivo smartphones. They take a major share of India’s smartphone market, and this is because of their offline distribution system. And these devices are no slouch either, as Vivo is one of the companies to offer new and unique features to their smartphones. Vivo was the first company to offer an in-display fingerprint scanner too.

But despite the hardware superiority of Vivo, there is still a lot for Vivo to learn about offering an equally good software experience. They push out lots of smartphones every year in every category, from budget to mid-range to flagship. But still, their software update policy is not official like other top tier smartphone manufacturers. And if you are a Vivo user and you are wondering whether or not you will receive the upcoming Android 11 update with Funtouch OS 11, then this article is for you.

Vivo Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11

Funtouch OS 11 is Vivo’s upcoming custom skin which will probably be based on Android 11 operating system. With next-generation Funtouch OS we may see the latest UI design, new desktop icons, improved dark mode, new live wallpapers, improved Jovi virtual assistant and several customization options. Last year Vivo released the plan for Android 10 based Funtouch OS 10 a couple of months after the official Android 10 was released by Google. Based on how Vivo handled Functouch OS updates in the past, we have compiled a list of Vivo phones that will most probably receive the upcoming Android 11 based Funtouch OS update.

Here’s the list of Vivo phones expected to receive Android 11

How we created the above list?

Only a handful of devices have been released recently by Vivo that come with Android 10 preinstalled. These devices will surely receive the next Android update after it becomes official in the Q4 of 2020.  Vivo has pushed out two major OS updates to their smartphones in the past. We can expect Vivo to continue on this trend and push out Android 11 updates to devices that came with Android Pie out of the box. Some of them have not yet received Android 10 though, but even if Vivo takes a while, we can expect these devices to run on Android 11 in 2021.

These Vivo devices may or may not receive Android 11

Vivo sometimes tends to avoid OS updates on their cheaper budget and even mid-range devices. They push out one major OS update for this section of devices, and only sometimes we see a device from this section receiving two major OS updates. Nonetheless, it would be better if Vivo pushes out Android 11 to all the smartphones in this section. Having said that, these are the devices that may or may not receive the Android 11 based Funtouch OS update.

Conclusion

These are just speculations based on Vivo’s old track record with major OS updates. It might change when the actual update rolls out. However, we can expect most of these devices to receive the Android 11 update. Now one thing to remember here is that Vivo usually takes a lot of time to release the stable build of their Funtouch OS when a new Android version is launched. So to know for sure, which devices will receive the update, we have to wait and see till the Q1 or Q2 of 2021.
