Hi, I bought a X80Pro and has a funtouch ROM. Does it exist a chinese and a global version? My phone has all the language but I had to install all the Google matters by myself. If I have reduced version of the ROM does somebody know where to find a Global ROM to flash? Thnks

Funtouch is the global ROM. The Chinese ROM is Origin OS Ocean. Although you may have to download and install your choice of Google apps from the Playstore, they will all work. On the CN version a few Google functions, such as autobackup, Android Auto, etc., won't work.

You are right, but I know they are going to expand the selling in Europe. I don't think they are going to sell it with a ROM without Android auto, for example.

Today the price was announced for germany: 1300€ (equals 1350$). And this for the 12/256 GB version... 🤯😰

Its like a bad joke, if you see that you can import the 12/256 version from China for under 900€.

In reality there are some small differences: it does not work Android Auto and Google bkp. I did try to change the standard lancher and it does not work. I would like to flash the standard Global Android ROM
Sounds strange to me, I thought global is global. Like everyone knows global was only India with the last models of Vivo phones.
I'm very excited to get the x80 pro here in Europe.
Hope funtouch is as good as Origin os is but without the few points which are missing in origin os.

Me suena extraño, pensé que global es global. Como todos saben, global fue solo India con los últimos modelos de teléfonos Vivo.
Estoy muy emocionado de obtener el x80 pro aquí en Europa.
Espero que funtouch sea tan bueno como Origin os pero sin los pocos puntos que faltan en origin os.
YI have the same doubt, I really like the X80 pro but in my country Colombia they launch it tonight and it will come at a price of $6,500,000 That is equivalent to 1,500 USD while the Chinese version costs about 850 USD. Is Color OS or Funtouch OS better? Could I change from Color OS ROM to Funtouch OS ROM? Thank you.

If you mean Origin Ocean instead of ColorOs, then no you can't switch between them (and it will maybe take a long time until someone finds a reliable way to switch)
As far as I know noone even found yet how to unlock the bootloader on the x80 pro
Also if it's anything like the x70 pro+, if you're gonna use the chinese rom, some stuff in the phone will stay in chinese even if the phone is set to be in english
and you can't (at least yet) get all the normal apps people use outside of china, to behave well enough on the chinese rom

overall I wouldn't say vivo flagships are a good investment (at least currently) if you're going to want to really use your phone beside basic use

Si te refieres a Origin Ocean en lugar de ColorOs, entonces no, no puedes cambiar entre ellos (y tal vez pase mucho tiempo hasta que alguien encuentre una forma confiable de cambiar)
Que yo sepa, nadie ha encontrado todavía cómo desbloquear el gestor de arranque en el x80 pro
Además, si es algo como el x70 pro+, si vas a usar la rom china, algunas cosas en el teléfono permanecerán en chino incluso si el teléfono está configurado para estar en inglés.
y no puede (al menos todavía) obtener todas las aplicaciones normales que la gente usa fuera de China, para comportarse lo suficientemente bien en la rom china

en general, no diría que los buques insignia de vivo son una buena inversión (al menos actualmente) si realmente desea usar su teléfono además del uso básico

LI'm sorry if you're right, Origin OS, what a pity, does it mean that I won't be able to use the equipment properly? How is the customization layer of Origin OS in terms of performance, I have read a little And they say it gets hotter than the Funtouch OS version and the camera is not as good as the global version, it's strange why it should have the same performance since that's its main attraction.

Hello, guys. Please note that Android in Origin version will never be updated, NEVER!!! it's an official reply from Global Vivo customer support. So now you can decide which version to buy - Origin or Funtouch)))

Here what the Global customer support wrote: Thank you so much for your email and we are very sorry for the delayed reply. According to your email, we are sorry for the inconvenience. At present, it is confirmed that the Chinese version has not promised to upgrade to Android 13. OriginOS Ocean is a smartphone operating system that is deeply optimized, customized and developed based on the Android system. Due to the different hardware capabilities and configurations of each model, some models will continue to use the original Android version.

Nah, you are wrong or may be the reply that you have is not for vivo x80, because if that may true, we would not have beta firmware for chinese origin OS ocean version....

This reply not make sense... May be they said that because it does not suit them

Can this be applied to global version? When I first installed the beta I wasn't not sure which version I installed. My phone had an entirely different look to it. But it worked fine. Outside the normal beta bugs. I then reinstalled the roll back firmware then reinstalled the beta and now the phone is no different looking than reg android 12. So can this be installed over w20?

    The link you posted is for the CN Origin OS Ocean Android 13 beta. You can't install that on the global version of the phone. If you are looking for the Funtouch Android 13 beta it can be found here:
