Google is releasing a new Android version every year, but some users are not getting the latest Android updates on their device. The smartphone OEMs provide the latest updates to their premium devices whereas the mid-range or previous year models rarely get updates. According to statistics by StatCounter, Android 10 is available to only 33% of smartphones worldwide. Despite being eligible for Android 10, there are many devices that haven’t yet received this update, and today we are going to talk about one such device, Vivo Y19.
Vivo seems to have forgotten the Y19 series. Many forums and comment sections are filled with the users’ doubts regarding the Android 10 update for this device. Hence, in this article, I will talk about a new official statement made by Vivo on its Twitter account.
A Twitter user Vikram Nagar asked Vivo about the Android 10 update status for Vivo Y19. He said,
When will you get Android 10 version update in Vivo Y19 Mobile?
To that comment, Vivo replied that,
Thank you for interacting with us. Currently, vivo India has not released Android 10 version for vivo Y19 Handset. Whenever, it will be rollout then you will get the notification automatically in your handset.
A screenshot of this conversation is given below.
The reply from the official team is not satisfactory. After waiting for a long time, I at least expected an approximate date of the Android 10 rollout, but it seems Vivo is too busy promoting its latest V-series smartphone V20, which was released a few weeks ago.
Vivo Y19 was released in November 2019. This device ran Funtouch OS 9.2 which is based on Android Pie out of the box. Despite being eligible for Android 10, this device has not received this update yet.
