Coronavirus sent updates to the hospital: the turn of FuntouchOS 10
The Wuhan virus epidemic continues to interfere with the plans of Chinese companies. As notorious Xiaomi fans know, due to the development of the epidemic, the programmers of the Chinese techno-giant announced the termination of work on MIUI 11. Now, another major player in the market has joined the boycott – Vivo. The company announced that it will be forced to postpone the deployment of its FuntouchOS 10 operating system based on Android 10.
Obviously, there is nothing good in this news. Especially considering that Google recently launched the deployment of Preview Beta Android 11. Until the release of the next version of Android, just a little is left, and Vivo smartphones will have to run Android 9 Pie for a few more months.
Vivo had plans to begin a beta phase this month. It is now clear that the epidemic will greatly spoil the company's plans. At the moment, the company expects that the first public beta of FuntouchOS 10 will not be ready until the end of March. The first devices fans of the brand will be able to try on are NEX 3, NEX 3 5G, NEX S, NEX Dual Display, X27 and X2 Pro.
In addition to the transition to the new version of Green Robot, FuntouchOS 10 will bring an updated design with redrawn icons, transition animations and live wallpapers. Also, the firmware will include some of the standard Android 10 features, such as gesture navigation, enhanced privacy, and dark mode.
We hope that the company will not need months to release a stable update for these devices. After all, as we have already said, Android 11 is on its way.
