Vivo Promises 3 Years Of Android Updates For Upcoming Flagships
When Samsung extended the number of years its phones would get software updates, it hit a trend of extended software updates in the Android smartphone world. Vivo has also announced three years of Android updates for its flagship X series phones.
A couple of days ago, Oppo launched the Find X3 series and announced three years of software support.
Accordingly, Vivo will give three upgrades for Android OS and security updates for select models launching after July 2021. Unfortunately, the Vivo X60 series, X50 series, and Vivo X21 will not get three Android updates.
Vivo is planning to reveal details about its new X-series phones. The Vivo X70 Pro+ could be one of the upcoming models. It has a 4,500mAh battery and 66W fast charging support. The smartphone might also have a 1/1.28-inch sensor supported by Zeiss optics and include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
As mentioned, Samsung announced a three-generation OS policy together with Galaxy smartphones. Samsung this year even said that some smartphones also get up to four years of Android security updates.
And not to forget, LG also declared three years of updates on its flagship smartphones before the company started to shut the smartphone business. Three years of OS updates is a big change over the two years that was previously the standard for most Android manufacturers. However, this could extend to as many as four years.
Last year, Google and Qualcomm offered four generations of Android OS and security updates to manufacturers, with devices equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC.
