Earlier, the Vivo smartphone company confirmed that it is working on revamping its custom Android layer, which will be replacing the existing Funtouch OS. The company has now confirmed that it is to announce the new OriginOS on November 18.
On the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, Vivo will launch the OriginOS on November 18 in Shenzhen, China. The company has also created a dedicated OriginOS profile but did not reveal its features.
The new OS will promise improvement and it will be completely dissimilar from the current Funtouch OS. It will be available for all existing Vivo smartphones. Vivo is expected to disclose the details about the new OS in the coming days.
The new Origin OS is expected to be much smoother and cleaner for use. It is also likely to provide the users the ability to switch between the company’s OS and stock Android. Since the launch date is very close, we expect more details in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Vivo recently rolled out the new Vivo V20 in India with FunTouch OS 11. Vivo V20 is the first device to ship with Android 11 out of the box. Vivo V20 is priced at Rs. 24,990 for the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage version and the 8GB RAM with 256GB storage version costs Rs. 27,990.
