In the recent past, users of Android smartphones have become aware of the importance of Android security and firmware updates on their devices. Users are pretty active on official community forums, or other social media platforms are constantly asking for updates if they are not available for their devices. Vivo has not been one of those brands that deliver timely updates, but in 2020 we have seen a shift in this behavior and the updates were delivered to some of the Vivo phones. The Funtouch OS 10 is the company’s latest custom UI which is based on Android 10 and has been tested on several devices and the user is awaiting stable updates. If you own a Vivo S1 Pro, then we have some good news for you.

As already mentioned that there is no information as to whether this is coming from an official source or not, so we advise our readers to be skeptical. What makes us believe about this information is that if we go as per the official Funtouch OS 10 (Android 10) update roadmap shared by Vivo officially, the Vivo S1 Pro is scheduled to get the Android 10 update around June. So, who knows that the users of the Vivo S1 Pro are in for a treat, and the update might knock the doors of the device, sooner than expected.
So, what all the users of the Vivo S1 Pro can do is wait for the commencement of the next week, when the Android 10 (Funtouch OS 10) update is slated to roll out as per the information shared by one of the users and hope that the update becomes available for them. We will keep you posted if the update is out and about for the Vivo S1 Pro.
