Well, today Vivo V9 launched back in 2018 is receiving a new software update. Currently, the Vivo V9 runs on the version PD1 730F_EX A_6.12.1. The new software update arrived today comes with version 6.13.1 and it brings July security patch along with other improvements and optimizations to the system.
