Vivo hasn t mentioned which devices will be getting the latest operating system, but Android Authority believes the X21 to be the first one. Vivo launched the smartphone back in May. Following that, the flagship Vivo NEX device too is expected to get the Android 9 Pie treatment.

Going by how things have worked in the past, Vivo s promise of rolling out Android 9 Pie by the end of year seems quite commendable. It will be interesting to see what more the company will be able to bring to the operating system with its FunTouch OS. Android 9 Pie itself comes with quite a few interesting features including new gesture navigation, AI enhancements and a new Digital Wellbeing feature, which allows you to track your smartphone usage.
