According to Vivo, the stable Fun Touch OS 13 rolled out for the Vivo X80 Pro on October 24, and we can confirm that we have indeed received the update. Unfortunately for everyone else, the company just says that the update will come to other devices "gradually" without mentioning a specific device or release window.

As such, Vivo's beta roadmap gives us some sort of rough guide. The roadmap shows that the Android 13 beta will be available for the X80, X70 Pro Plus, X70 Pro, X60 series, V25 Pro, V23 series, T1 family, and other devices by the end of the year. So, it is safe to say that this phone will receive the stable update in Q1 2023.
