Future Vivo phones could switch between stock Android and new Origin OS at the press of a button

Vivo recently confirmed that it is working on a new operating system for its future phones, and now we’re finally starting to get some details about it. While the company hasn’t revealed any information about the device yet, a new leak has revealed some interesting details about the upcoming software.

According to a new leak, the company’s new Origin OS will offer a unique ability that will allow users to switch between the company’s Origin OS and stock Android on the fly. The information comes courtesy of the popular tipster, Digital Chat Station on Weibo, who says the Origin OS has received significant UI changes.

But even more interesting, it will also come with a toggle that will allow users to switch between Android and Origin OS. To back up his claim, the tipster also attached an image with the Weibo post showing the switch found in the internal test systems.

For now, there is little information on when the Origin OS might be launched for the first time. But a previous leak had suggested that the Android-based custom skin will bring major improvements over the current Funtouch OS and would be built from the ground up for Vivo phones. He also added that the operating system will be available later this year and will debut with the X60 series in December.

Details on the Vivo X60 are yet to be revealed, however, it is speculated that the phone will launch by December. It is also likely to come around the launch of the Oppo Reno 5 series which is rumored to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G and Snapdragon 860 SoC.

As an upgrade to the Vivo X50 series, the X60 would focus heavily on camera performance and would have four rear cameras that would again be placed on a gimbal mechanism. Other specs of the X60 are also unknown, but as it is also expected to have a sleek design, the expectation is that it won’t have a large battery.

The phone is also expected to retain the curved edges that were first seen on the Vivo X50 Pro, and just like its predecessor it could also come in another simpler version with a much simpler design that doesn’t sport curves. For now, we can only wait for more information about the device, however, if the phone actually launches in December, the wait may not be too long as we should start getting more details about the device in the coming weeks.

The company’s new Origin OS will offer a unique ability to switch to stock Android on the fly.
