Funtouch 2.0 for Vivo phones leaked based on Android 4.4.2


vivo funtouch 2.0

Vivo phone users can look forward to receiving and Android 4.4.2 update soon plus a new UI with Funtouch 2.0.

Funtouch is the ROM which ships on Vivo’s Android smartphones. The OS is a clean, good looking, bloat free ROM which is optimised well. Vivo have also been good with regular(isn) updates, but the next OTA might have a little more in store.

These screenshots show the first leaked look at Funtouch 2.0, which will be based on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat.

According to a Vivo designer the new version of the ROM will get a simplified, flat look, and will see a few visual updates and added features. As we can see in the second screenshot the task manager and toggle area has been refreshed and the Icons mirror the design of other recent ROM updates.

Vivo haven’t said when they will be releasing the ROM, or which phones will be first to receive it, however it seems likely that they will release it alongside the next Vivo Xplay device before the end of the year.

Previous UMi Zero official price will be $299
Next Chuwi DX1, the world’s first tablet with rotating camera?

    Vivo have the best roms and major updates in the market.
    They invented the double tap, the screen on when taking the phone out of the pocket, the mini screen and the timeline ui.
    With vivo phones you don’t need other android development.
    In the day they announced the vivo xplay 3s they updated the vivo xplay software.
    I’m just crossing my fingers that this update would be available for vivo xplay users as well.

      Yes Vivo do release frequent updates, that’s great, but I hate Funtouch UI, it’s bloated with shit, looks terrible, is slow and laggy and quite badly adapted for english users. My girlfriend has the Vivo Xplay 3S and loves it. I would love to have the phone but would want a vanilla android ROM for it then, or at least replace the crappy launcher. Vivo do build fantastic phones hardware wise though, no one can compete with them., Samsung are like children’s toys compared to them (I own a Note 3 myself).

      I have the vivo xplay with funtouch 2.0 now, I love it. It’s very smooth although the english adaptation is not up to the standards. Apps operate nicely and the interaction with the phone just flows. The flat looking iOS is mainly because of the theme, this is easily manageable. I don’t think I ever had a better phone (prev phones: bb, iphone 4s, s4)

    Regardless, I see no reason why they don’t have a “vanilla”, optimized Android 4.4 port, then add extra customizations as optional APKs that can be installed from the Google Play store.
