Most smartphone manufacturers also have a system that they use in their smartphones. Technically, they do not own this system, they only own the skin on top of the Android system. Xiaomi has MIUI, Huawei has EMUI, OnePlus has HydrogenOS/OxygenOS, and so on. Chinese manufacturer, Vivo, has been using the Funtouch OS. However, there are now reports that the company will replace this system. According to popular Weibo leakster, @DigitalChatStation, Vivo’s new generation UI used to replace Funtouch OS is called Origin OS.
According to him, this operating system comes with better improvement than the previous generation. This system will come with new and complete features and should be among the first echelon of Android customized UI. Furthermore, the reports also claim that this system should arrive between November and December this year. Of course, it should come with a smartphone The leak claims that it should be the Vivo X60 series.
The literal translation of Origin OS means the “original operating system”. The company is trying to tell us that this system is original and contains its work from the scratch. It is also informing users that the new generation of Vivo UI is quite different.
In the same period last year, Vivo’s Funtouch OS project manager @JoviOS_小诸葛 posted on Weibo announcing a new version of the mobile phone system-JoviOS. At the time, there were widespread speculations that the JoviOS is Vivo’s new system. However, there has been no news on this system since then.
Vivo’s 6G R&D is on the way
Vivo recently held its “external communication” meeting which focuses on 6G development. Qin Fei, the dean of the Vivo Communication Research Institute, said that at the moment, Vivo has started 6G research. The company is currently researching some scenarios and key technologies. In Qin Fei’s view, mobile phones, AR/VR glasses, and robots are important products for building a digital life in the 6G era.
When talking about the difference between 5G and 6G, Qin Fei says that 4G and 5G has a digital connection. However, 6G will strengthen the two and combine intelligent development to provide integrated services such as communication, computing, and storage. He also emphasized that 6G cannot simply be equal to 5G+AI technology. At this stage, these two technologies are independent of each other and will move towards integrated development in the future.
