Vivo is a sister brand of Oppo which has gained lots of publicity since last two years worldwide especially in India and now in Australia, UK, France, Germany, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, and UAE. The Vivo is well-known for its iPhone like design and selfie cameras which are now loaded with AI beautify technology giving you a next level selfie experience.
However, Vivo has been criticized several times for launching its devices whether its flagship models or a budget phones with average specs. Unfortunately, it’s a habit of Vivo launching its devices with an older Android version.
When Android Nougat was hitting Android phones and Oreo was right around the corner, Vivo launched its devices with Android Marshmallow. So, Vivo didn’t set an excellent track-record in terms of Android updates.

We have seen in the past that Vivo provides at least one major update for its top-of-the-line phones. The devices were planned to get Android Oreo are still on waiting. There is no miracle you have to wait till Q1 of 2019 to get your Android P 9.0 update.

If your device gets launched with Android Oreo 8.1, chances are higher of getting Android P 9.0 update. And if your device sports a Snapdragon 65x or 66x series SoC, this would also get Android P 9.0 update, but it will take a while most probably in Q3 of 2019.
