Vivo is reportedly replacing Funtouch OS with an all-new avatar and a name i.e. Origin OS. Famous tipster Digital Chat Station says that Vivo has confirmed this via its official WeChat account that they are going to launch Origin OS soon. The exact launch date is referred to now but Vivo will speak more approximately this brand new software all the way through its 2020 Vivo developer convention on November 19. This convention is scheduled to be held in Shenzhen and it’ll focus on the new OS, IoT, apps, games, and other topics.
SeekDevice cites tipster Digital Chat Station to outline that Origin OS is all set to launch soon. This new software will replace Vivo’s current Funtouch OS. The tipster claims that Vivo has confirmed this development through its official WeChat account and says that more details on this OS will be shared all the way through the developer convention. An exact date for the rollout of this new Origin OS isn’t known. There could also be no clarity on which phone will get it first.
While there’s no information on all of the changes Origin OS plans to cause, the tipster reportedly says that it’ll be a remarkable improvement over the current Funtouch OS. Also, in probably the most past Weibo posts, Digital Chat Station suggested that Origin OS will be one the most productive Android UI custom skins in the market. We expect Vivo to release more information approximately Origin OS at developer convention in November.
