Vivo Y12s Android 11 update has arrived, the phone that was released with Android 10 out-of-the-box in January 2021 has received the FuntouchOS 11 update. This came to light when a Vivo Y12s user from Kenya posted the screenshot of the latest Android 11 update of his Vivo Y12s Smartphone on Twitter.
The screenshot highlighted that the Vivo Y12s has received the Funtouch OS 11 Global update based on Android 11. The tweet was responded to by none other than the official Twitter handle of Vivo Smartphones based in Kenya. Hence, it was confirmed that the update is official.
Vivo Y12s Android 11 Update
As the Vivo Y12s was released with Android 10 out-of-the-box in January 2021, this is its first major OS update. So, that puts it in the running for the Android 12 update as well. The Android 11 update for Vivo Y12s is right now available to only selected users since it has not actually been announced by Vivo globally. From the source, we can deduce that it first became available in Kenya since there have been no other reports of its Android 11 update from anywhere else.
At present, there is no official update log available anywhere. So, there are not many details about the significant changes that have been made in the Android 11 update of Vivo Y12s. Also, it is not clear as to which Security patch has been released along with the Funtouch OS 11 update based on Android 11 for this device.
Vivo Y12s specifications
The Vivo Y12s comes with a 6.51-inch Color IPS LCD screen with a Water Drop notch. It consists of a 13 MP + 2 MP dual rear camera and an 8 MP wide-angle front camera. It has a 2.3 GHz Octa-Core processor with a Mediatek Helio P35 chipset. The available RAM is 3 GB and the storage space available is 32 GB. It comes with an Android 10 out-of-the-box.
How long did Vivo take for the update?
Despite the official release of Android 11 in September 2020, Vivo Y12s was still released with an Android 10 out-of-the-box in January 2021 globally. Therefore, Vivo was quick to release a Funtouch OS 11 update for Vivo Y12s based on Android 11. Hence, it took Vivo around five months to release the first major update of Vivo Y12s since its release globally and eight months since the official release of Android 11.
How long will it get updates?
As mentioned earlier, the Vivo Y12s was released with an Android 10 out-of-box. It has now received its first major update with Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 11 this month. Since it is its first major OS update only, it is still in line with the Android 12 update.
Therefore, it can be concluded that Vivo Y12s will most probably receive another major OS update in the form of Android 12 and it can be its last major update since Vivo promises two years of major OS updates for mid-range phones as per its Android update policy.
