FuntouchOS official Twitter handle confirmed that Vivo has planned OriginOS as an exclusive skin for Chinese devices and has no plans to roll it out to other devices outside China.

Enhanced Memory Fusion Technology 1.0 makes your app using experience faster than ever. It uses a three-step process to speed up app preloading for a smoother experience.

Vivo X60 and X60 Pro have already been teased to become the first devices to get the upgrade and will arrive with it preloaded. Surprisingly, we don’t know much about the upcoming OriginOS apart from the fact that it is a completely overhaul OS which comes closely knitted with the stock Android unlike FuntouchOS.

The post arrived on Chinese social media site Weibo. iQOO runs on its own iQOO UI, however, it is possible that the sub-brand could launch an iQOO phone preloaded with OriginOS which is an upgraded version of FuntouchOS. [Source]

Update as of November 9: There’s a bit of change in the launch plan. Apparently, Vivo has officially confirmed that it will hold a special event on November 18 in Shenzhen, China to unveil the upcoming OriginOS. The company will also discuss which smartphones are eligible for it and the timeline it will follow as well. [Source]

Update as of November 6: Well, there are a lot of questions when it comes to what is OriginOS, what it will bring on-board and so on. Vivo answered a few philosophical questions about the OriginOS. When asked what OriginOS is, the Chinese OEM said that it is a key between digital and real world. When asked about what vocabulary does OriginOS live by, Vivo said “we”. Lastly, what does its tagline “Brave New World” mean to which the OEm responded that it interacts with emotional instinct with a close and real-like experiences. [Source]

Update as of November 5: Almost two weeks before the launch, the Chinese OEM Vivo has released the first of official posters for the upcoming OriginOS. The posters were put up on Vivo’s official account on Chinese social media site Weibo. The upcoming UI holds a tag line “Brave New World”. As said above, we aren’t aware of the features and list of supported devices to get this UI is still unknown. The posters also officially confirm that the OriginOS launch is happening at the Vivo Developer Conference on November 19 where FuntouchOS will be succeeded by OriginOS.

Update as of November 2: Today, we have a myriad of custom UIs from various OEMs such as OnePlus has OxygenOS, Samsung has OneUI, Oppo has ColorOS, Vivo has FuntouchOS and so on. Realme used its parent company’s ColorOS before shifting to Realme UI and that is fairly common.

Vivo is also making a switch from FuntouchOS to OriginOS which is Vivo’s latest custom skin based on Android and it is believed to be near original. It will have a complete UI overhaul and thus, the name change, although there wasn’t much information available about it before today. According to a leakster who goes by the name Digital Chat Station on Weibo, we now have a few clues about the upcoming UI.

According to the leaked post, the UI has undergone major UI overhaul. OriginOS is based on Android (no doubt) and brings Origin switch buttons and two different styles of desktops. He added that it is like a parallel world. No doubt OriginOS will have a different identity than the FuntouchOS. Interested people will have to wait till November 19 for the big unveil. [Source]

Update as of October 30: After years of shipping its smartphones with FuntouchOS, Vivo is switching to a superior stock-like and original Android custom UI called “OriginOS”. As perthe invites, the custom UI will launch at the VIvo Developer Conference which is scheduled for November 19. There’s not much information available when it comes to the OriginOS. Vivo sent out invites with a cryptic message “E=mc2” which is a famous mass-energy equivalence equation by Albert Einstein. The sets of posts are revolving around quantum physics as well.

A Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station tipped off the OriginOS news. As said, we aren’t aware of the differences that both FuntouchOS and OriginOS have in-place. According to the reports, Vivo will ship the OriginOS on the upcoming Vivo X60 which is slated to be announced between November and December. On the other hand, it is possible that the X60 is likely to launch at the VDC 2020 more than two weeks later. It remains to be seen if devices that received Android 11-based FuntouchOS 11 on Vivo V20 but it remains to be seen if it gets OriginOS or not. [Source]


In this guide, we will share all the Vivo Android 11 update status. Vivo is the sub brand of Chinese Smartphone maker BBK Electronics Corporation. It hold a major share of India’s smartphone market. We know that Vivo is quite slow when it comes to software updates and we don’t expect that to change with Android 11.

Vivo is one of the largest smartphone brand in China and India among other countries. It has a string of devices with many adding almost every month such as the latest Vivo X50 and Vivo X50 Pro among others. Vivo updates its smartphone lineup often which includes its budget smartphones to flagship devices and its sub-brand iQOO which is a gaming-oriented lineup that gets iQOO UI which is similar to FuntouchOS which is turn is based on Android OS.

What is Android 11?

Android 11 is the latest operating system from Google and it was made official on September 8. It was released after a series of updates rolled out over a period of a few months. It all started in February 2020 when Google released its first Developer Beta 1 for Pixel devices followed by two other Developer Previews. Next up, Google released three Beta candidates for Android 11 with the last one arriving in August 2020 and finally, on September 8, the Android 11 was made official.

Vivo has been a part of Android 11 beta program with a few of its devices included in the beta program a few months before it actually released. Now that the Android 11 is official, it is time for FuntouchOS 11 which is Vivo’s custom skin to arrive on eligible devices. Just like any other OEM, Vivo will release beta updates of Android 11-based FuntouchOS 11 beta on eligible devices followed by the stable version roll out via OTA and the process could take a few months if not more.
