Vivo promises three years of Android OS updates for X series devices

Vivo promises three years of Android OS updates for X series devices

Vivo X60 phones from its March 2021 global announcement.

Chinese smartphone brand Vivo announced today that it's expanding its software support for its X series phones by promising three years of major Android OS security updates and upgrades.

With this announcement, Vivo joins Samsung, LG, OnePlus, and Microsoft in promising at least three years of Android OS updates for select mobile devices (Samsung goes a little further by promising up to four years' worth).

Vivo said that these updates would be available to 'select models' launching after July 2021 for European, Australian, and Indian markets. If the X series models are not eligible to receive Android OS upgrades, they will still at least get regular Android OS security updates.

Now, it remains to be seen if the perk will cascade to the upcoming Vivo X60 smartphones and last year's Vivo X50 series since there's not much stopping Vivo from supporting its current cycles of X series devices.
