Traditionally, the very first devices with the final version of the latest Android are Google Pixel smartphones. It was expected that this will be the case with the new Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, which will be announced today. But the Chinese Vivo decided to make a nice move with the release of the Vivo V20 model, out of the box running on the latest Android 11.

The press release states that “the V20 series will run on Android 11”, based on which one might think about the usual premature announcement of the brand about the future update of their devices to the current version of Android. But, the Vivo V20 has already fallen into the hands of Indonesian bloggers who have published a video of the unboxing.

On the settings screen, you can see that the smartphone is indeed running Android 11 (API level 30), effectively making it the world’s first new device to roll off the assembly line with Android 11 preinstalled. At the same time, the other two models of the V20 line (V20 SE and V20 Pro) are based on the previous Android 10. And although the Vivo V20 is fully disclosed by the official website, its price has not yet been announced, and the official launch in India is due on October 12.

Earlier this month, Vivo has revealed the Vivo V20 SE and Vivo V20 Pro smartphones, and here is a reminder of their specifications:
