Vivo announces which phones will get Android 8.0 Oreo update

Android 8.0 Oreo

However, the company has not revealed a specific time frame for the rollout for the smartphones, except the Vivo X20, which will be receiving the update sometime in April 2018, that too in the beta version.

Vivo will also be pushing a new FunTouch OS version with Android Oreo. Of course, there are quite a few smartphones that have received the Oreo update, and, there also are ones which are launching with Oreo out of the box.

Yes, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo (owned by BBK Electronics) has shared a list of its smartphones that will receive the Android Oreo update.

Meanwhile, other manufacturers like Honor have already started rolling out the Oreo update for their older devices in India.

As of now, there's no word on Oreo update for other Vivo smartphones, however, we will keep you updated of the developments as soon as we have more information. Now, we have known that the company launched its flagship smartphones a year ago in the Vivo X series and the smartphones have been fairly successful in various markets around the world.

It's been months since Google released the source code for Android 8.0 Oreo update, but only a handful of smartphone manufacturers have treated their devices with the latest update. In the first phase, the update will be rolled out as a beta version to just one smartphone from the eligible devices list. Although Vivo is planning to update these eight phones to Oreo, a significant portion of its smartphone portfolio will be stuck with Nougat or whatever Android version the phone is now running on. For example, a user can minimize and watch a YouTube video in a small window while sending an email. It is also expected to bring new emojis, notification dots, faster boot times, and autofill for passwords.
