Vivo unveils OriginOS based on Android 11 which is FuntouchOS' successor

Vivo’s new interface looks refreshing!

It looks refreshing, but what is OriginOS?

Of course, you have already heard about Vivo’s main skin, which is FuntouchOS. I feel old, we have been using it for years and we had a lot of fun using it as our primary interface. The skin has been rebased on several devices, running Android 11. As for its polished release with a new name “OriginOS” will soon replace FuntouchOS on your current Vivo device, and will be used for future smartphones out-of-the-box.

OriginOS is a successor of FuntouchOS with overhauled capabilities, a revamped interface, and additional features that you’ll love.

Vivo’s latest UX which is OriginOS was teased on November 6 and gave us a little philosophy about their upcoming software, followed by an official announcement on November 9 at their official Weibo account, they assured us that the company will unveil their latest software on November 18 at a special event in Shenzen, China. iQOO, which was Vivo’s sub-brand, has also reshared the announcement, giving us a hint that the future iQOO devices will run on OriginOS based on Android 11 out-of-the-box. In case you didn’t know, the first official posters about the OriginOS were shared on their official Weibo account with the tagline “Brave New World.”
