Vivo reveals OriginOS update roadmap: Supported phones and when they will get the update

Vivo has officially announced the latest version of Android, OriginOS. The operating system will replace the company’s FuntouchOS and will bring with it visual and performance-related updates.

As the new skin comes as a complete overhaul of the company’s previous FuntouchOS, it not only looks and feels fresh, but it also offers new features over Vivo’s previous operating system. But a quick glance at the feature list suggests that the biggest updates have been introduced in the performance department.

This is because it has been announced that OriginOS will ship with the latest Multi-Turbo 5.0 technology that offers features such as memory merging, process optimization and application preloading. There is also a new RAM optimization technology that integrates RAM and ROM through algorithm optimization. With this in play, some of the idle ROM space can be used for the RAM operation function, thus improving the performance. Vivo claims that this feature will greatly improve the phone’s ability to do more tasks and open more applications. In addition, the new operating system also offers system resident process optimization that reduces memory usage for 100-200 MB of system operations. While with preload, OriginOS can intelligently preload applications that are ready to open, thereby reducing application startup times by reducing cold starts by 40%.

Ahead of the launch of OriginOS on Vivo phones, the company has revealed the complete roadmap for the new operating system. In a Weibo post, the company promised that over 30 new phones will switch to OriginOS.

However, the note here is that the program has been released for Vivo phones in China, with the company still gasping on the availability of OriginOS in international markets.

Here is the full list:
