Vivo will release Android 8.0 Oreo update for these flagship smartphones

Vivo has announced that it is set to bring Android Oreo to its various smartphone models. The good news is that Vivo just announced what is most likely the beginning of beta testing for software upgrades to Android Oreo, and this will start with the Vivo X20, with the beta test starting around April 2018. The Chinese company posted a list on its forum, revealing seven of its smartphones that will be updated with FunTouch OS based on Android 8.0 Oreo.

Other Vivo smartphones that will be treated with the update include the X20 Plus, X9s, X9s Plus, Xplay6, X9 and X9 Plus. The next version of Android has been named as Android Oreo and the update is already available for the Google Pixel and Nexus smartphones all over the world. Now, we have known that the company launched its flagship smartphones past year in the Vivo X series and the smartphones have been fairly successful in various markets around the world.

If the latest custom ROM is listed on the company's official website, then the Vivo smartphone users in the other markets outside China can also download the same and flash it on their smartphones so that their devices are updated to the latest Funtouch OS based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Also, it's always better to keep your expectations on the lower side, since the company has a rather poor track record when it comes to software updates, and there are chances that some of its smartphones in India may never get the update or may be stuck on Android Nougat, despite getting a FunTouch update. Watch this space, you Vivo users. However, it is quite expected that the new update will bring core Android Oreo features, including Smart Autofill, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, and Notification Dots amongst others.
