Over the past year and a half, Vivo has worked tirelessly to improve its Android-based operating system for smartphones. It has made several additions to the Funtouch OS, with variations based on Android 10 and Android 11 significantly improving on each other.
And now it looks like the company’s next bet in the OS game could be even better and could even be launched under a new name. As per the report, this project is still in the works and is called Origin OS.
According to the tipster, Digital Chat Station, this would be short for “original OS”. The Android-based custom skin is said to bring major improvements over the current Funtouch OS and would be built from the ground up for Vivo phones. He also adds that the operating system will be made available later this year and will debut with the X60 series in December.
The move to bring a new operating system by the end of the year would be strange because it would most likely be based on Google’s Android 11, a software that Vivo has already started rolling out to users.
Even if the whistleblower in question has a stellar record with his losses, it will still be prudent to note that Vivo just rolled out Android 11 for its phones a few weeks ago and with the company having already released it to some users and it looks aggressive about extending it to others via its wide range of phones, it would be rather strange for them to launch a completely new operating system in a few months.
However, as we say it, it’s also important not to forget that it has long been rumored that Vivo was working on a new operating system, which was supposed to be launched earlier this year, but not because of the ongoing coronavirus. pandemic.
Therefore, it might be true that Vivo is still trying to bring a new operating system, one that is much cleaner and easier to use, and helps it stay in the game against more refined versions of Android like OxygenOS, One UI, and more.
Vivo’s new operating system would be called Origin OS, which would be short for Original OS.
