Today, Vivo officially announced that it will provide three-year of major Android OS upgrades and security updates for some models launched after July 2021.
The company is expanding its software support for the X series flagship. Vivo is committed to ensuring continuous improvement by ensuring based on evolving consumer trends and exciting new software innovations to expand the high-end smartphone experience offered by X-Series devices.
