Vivo Android 13 (Funtouch OS 13) Update Tracker?

Vivo is much slower than its competitors when it comes to Android updates. Vivo’s Android-based FunTouch OS starts receiving beta updates only after the stable build of Android is released. It was evident last year with Android 12 as well. Many eligible Vivo devices started receiving the Android 12 beta update in December, months after the stable release of Android 12.

We can expect something similar this time around as well. Eligible devices will start receiving the beta update for FunTouch OS 13 starting from November or December, given Google does not have any delay with the stable release of Android 13.

FunTouch OS 13 supported devices list:

Vivo’s track record with Android 13 has not been stellar. Most of their budget and mid-range devices only received one major Android software update. And till last year, their flagship series also received only two major Android updates.

But all that changed when Vivo announced that they would be pushing out Android updates to their flagship X series devices for three years. There was a catch with the announcement, though. Only those Vivo X series devices will receive the three updates launched post-July 2021. The ones before that are limited to two years of Android updates. So based on this policy, we have compiled a list of Android 13(FunTouch OS 13) eligible devices.

Device Name Notes
Vivo V23 Pro Officially Get Android 13
Vivo V23 5G Officially Get Android 13
Vivo T1 Pro 5G Officially Get Android 13
Vivo V23e 5G Officially Get Android 13

Despite these three devices, if any other device launches this year, we can expect that device to receive the Android 13 update.

Release date:

As mentioned above, we will start receiving the beta build of FunTouch OS 13 at the year-end of 2022. And sometime around April or May 2023, we should have a couple of Vivo devices running on FunTouch OS 13 stable build.

So this is all about what we know about the FunTouch OS 13 based on Android 13. If you have any questions or queries about this article, comment below, and we will get back to you.
