By the end of March 2022, older Vivo phones such as Vivo X50 Pro, X50, V20 Pro, V20 SE, Y33s, Y20G, Y53s, and Y12s will get the beta update. In April, other Vivo phones like the Vivo S1 and Vivo Y19 will start to get the update, with V17 Pro, V17, S1 Pro, Y73, Y51, Y20, Y20i, and Y30 receiving the update by the month-end.

Vivo hasn’t mentioned the stable update timeline for all of these phones, though we expect the stable update to arrive soon after the beta one. Though the Chinese units of Vivo phones run Origin OS, since the X70 series in international markets already runs Funtouch OS 12, you can expect the Android 12 beta update for the smartphones mentioned above to come with Funtouch OS 12 on top. The update timeline mentioned above is specific to Indian devices only, with the rollout plan for the other countries to be specified separately.
