Vivo is not the smartphone manufacturer you look up to for speedy and timely updates on your phone. The company seems so busy building new tech and smartphones, that it has literally forgotten that timely updates are one of the most important factors in sustaining in the current smartphone market. And what might sound pretty dumbfounded and irresponsible from such a big smartphone manufacturer from China, that as per recent official tweets, Vivo has completely ruled out the fact that the Vivo V11 Pro smartphone will be updated with the Android 10 (Funtouch OS 10) update?
Responding to a user query, Vivo has stated that the Vivo V11 Pro is working pretty stable in the current Android version and the company has not yet planned to update the device, as of yet. Interestingly, the device goes by the name Vivo X21s in China is already slated to receive the Funtouch OS 10 (Android 10) update in June, back in the home country. But, this response coming from Vivo India, has almost put the Android 10 (Funtouch OS 10) update plans for the Vivo V11 Pro, in the back burner. Now it will be interesting to see, what reaction the users of the Vivo V11 Pro come up with after such a statement by the official Twitter handle of Vivo India.
We appraise your requirements and thankful for it. The vivo V11Pro handset is much stable with the current Android version, for now, hence we have not planned to update it yet. However, to ensure your best experience, we will keep updating the Funtouch OS version as always.
