Vivo's mid-range smartphone launched last year, the Vivo V11 Pro, has started receiving the latest firmware update of FunTouch OS in India. The update is based on Android's latest stable version, the Android Pie.

According to a report by TelecomTalks, the new update brings a new UI design with a new shortcut centre. It is said to serve an in-app action with a single tap.

According to one Delhi resident who has received the update, the update weighs 3.11GB and has a system-wide Dark Mode. He mentioned in a tweet that the new firmware is in its testing phase in limited numbers.

The Vivo V11 Pro is lit by a 6.4-inch super AMOLED display with a “teardrop notch" and a resolution of 2340x1080. Powering the device is the AI-enabled octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with four Kryo 260 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four other Kryo 260 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. This is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is expandable to 256GB via a MicroSD card. The phone comes with a game mode which is optimised to provide a better gaming experience. The Vivo V11 Pro is backed by a 3,400mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0.

At the back of the phone is a dual camera setup comprising 12MP and 5MP sensors with dual pixel technology, which Vivo claims can provide better low-light photography. For clicking selfies, there’s a 25MP front facing camera.

The most advertised feature of the phone is the in-display fingerprint scanner. This will be the first time this feature will be available in a Vivo V-series smartphone. Vivo claims that this 4th generation in-display fingerprint scanner is faster and more efficient than its previous iterations.

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.2 and Micro USB port.
