Reports reaching us confirm that smartphone brand Vivo is set to replace the current Funtouch OS with a new overlay called the Origin OS. This project is believed to be a complete makeover of the current OS, with the company confirming via its official WeChat account that this OS will launch soon.
Presently, there is no set date yet concerning when the Origin OS will launch, but the company is expected to throw more light on this software during its developer conference slated for the 19th of November.
Another interesting fact that adds to the mystery surrounding this software is that the company has not revealed which device(s) will get this software first, or if it will be unveiled with a brand-new smartphone.
This new software is expected to be a massive improvement on the Funtouch OS, as it should bring one of the best Android UI skins in the market. We expect to hear more from the Chinese company when the Vivo developer conference takes place in November.
Recently, research company Counterpoint released its trust rankings, with Vivo performing rather poorly in it. Its findings revealed that only 24 percent of Vivo devices that sold between the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020 were updated to the Android 10 meaning that a large percentage of its phones were still stuck with Android Oreo or 9 Pie.
Hopefully, this new software sees Vivo smartphones enjoy an improved performance, making sure users get the best out of their devices.
