When Will Vivo Devices Get the Android 15 Update?

Google has almost reached to the end of Android 15 development as the platform stability stage is imminent in June 2024 and the full stable version will be released around September to October 2024. During the platform stability timeline, Google will resolve common bugs and stability issues with the operating system so that the third-party applications can run seamlessly.

Though there is no official announcement made yet by Google regarding the release date of Android 15 publicly, we’re expecting to receive it somewhere in October 2024 similar to the trend. Last year, Android 14 went live in the first week of Oct 2023. So, the overall release date will be more or less the same.

After releasing the stable build, other smartphone OEMs start adding final improvements and some specific functionalities to their custom skins like FuntouchOS or OriginOS. Then the manufacturer starts pushing the firmware update based on the latest Android OS version on their compatible device models under the beta program. So, it may take a couple of months or even a year to get an official stable update from your OEM like Vivo when everything seems sorted out.

In case, your specific device model from Vivo or iQOO comes under the early beta testing program for Android 15, you’re lucky enough to explore the user interface & key features before anyone else. Usually, early beta access is available for the newly released or latest flagship models from any non-Pixel brand. Moreover, the rest of the compatible device models will gradually receive the beta software update and then the stable update in the next year expectedly.

As the OTA updates do come in batches and depend on specific regions or mobile carriers, you may have to wait further in some scenarios. Sometimes the newly released custom skin might have some issues regarding the bootloop or bricking while installing. In that case, OEMs immediately roll back the update until the problem gets fixed. So, keep all that in mind when it comes to non-Pixel devices.
