Vivo rolls out Android 10 with Funtouch OS to the Nex 3 5G
Google first rolled out a stable build of Android 10 to its Pixel devices back in September last year. Around the same time, Chinese OEM Vivo announced the Nex 3 5G, however, the device rolled out with Funtouch OS 9.1 based on Android 9 Pie, instead of an Android 10 version of Vivo’s custom skin. Following the launch of the Nex 3S 5G last month, which is essentially a Nex 3 5G with a Snapdragon 865 SoC, Vivo is now finally rolling out an Android 10-based build of Funtouch OS to the original Vivo Nex 3 5G.
As per a recent report from GSMArena, Vivo Nex 5G (model no. V1924A) users around the world are now receiving a build of Funtouch OS 10 (v6.0.1) based on Android 10. The new software release includes all of the features Google introduced with Android 10, along with the Android security patches for March 2020. But as far as Vivo’s own optimizations are concerned, the new build doesn’t pack in any major UI changes over Funtouch OS 9.1. The software does include some minor changes to the font and gesture navigations, but other than that it’s still pretty much the same as older versions of the software.
