vivo is getting ready to unveil the next version of its Android skin for China. This will be called Origin OS Ocean and will be announced on December 9, as already revealed.
Today the company has published a new video teaser for the upcoming OS version, and, rather unsurprisingly, it all starts in the ocean. The new UI design elements are neatly showcased too, it’s not just an empty teaser, this one.
The home screen UI is especially new and fresh compared to the previous iteration of Origin OS, and apparently the traditional Android home screen / launcher experience is gone now, fully replaced with vivo’s interpretation.
The overall style of Origin OS Ocean is simpler, more vivid and more interesting than before, bringing an even more streamlined look. Functions such as photos, payments, and trip reminders are more prominently shown on the lock screen, surrounded by the fingerprint icon – this is aimed to show users that they can quickly access such important features straight from the fingerprint sensor after unlocking.
As before, Origin OS is likely to stay confined to vivo’s phones for the Chinese market. Internal testing is currently ongoing for the X70 Pro+, X70 Pro, X70, X60 Pro+, X60t Pro+, X60 Pro, X60 Curved Screen Edition, S10 Pro, S10, S9, iQOO 8 Pro, iQOO 8, and iQOO 7.
