The Vivo X60 may be able to "switch" between its new OriginOS and Android
Vivo has set its next Developer Conference for November 19, 2020. It is now rumored to unveil a successor for the X50 premium smartphone line at this event, not to mention a whole new operating system. According to a recent leak, it is to be called OriginOS and will be improved compared to the company's existing Funtouch OS, an Android skin based on version 11 at the latest.
The prolific leaker Digital Chat Station claims to have an interesting new detail on this new software to divulge. Apparently, the X60 will be able to run either it or Android at the user's whim.This could be interpreted to mean that OriginOS is in fact an entirely discrete in-house product, like Huawei's HarmonyOS, and, moreover, supports dual-booting.
However, it is much more likely that its substantially altered UI and that of a more standard Android nature will be interchangeable at the touch of the software button mentioned in this new leak. Therefore, it may be as much like a custom launcher as anything. In other OriginOS news, Vivo has reportedly also got it running on older devices that include the iQOO Pro, 3 and Neo3 smartphones.
