Vivo’s Developer Conference was set to begin today. Reportedly, the conference has started with the debut of Origin OS 4, which is based on Android 14. According to sources, the OriginOS 4 has several new features. It even includes a redesigned User Interface and performance improvements. However, the new operating system will be restricted to devices inside China. On the contrary, global units have already received Funtouch 14.
OriginOS 4 brings improvements in power
A “virtual graphics card” enables faster app responsiveness, which is one improvement in performance. It improves frame rate stability by 70% and reduces app opening and closing times by 36%. In reality, the OS gives the onscreen task priority, increases CPU and GPU resource allocation, and prevents “irrelevant calculations.”
In order to improve visual comfort, OriginOS 4 comes with over 2,000 redesigned icons. The whole operating system now features a custom Vivo Sans font. Moreover, UI interactions feature contextual wallpapers, lock screen personalization, and real-time blurring effects.
Some features of OriginOS 4 will be China-exclusive
Android Auto is not accessible in China. For this reason, the company has debuted the Vivo Smart Car 4.0 with OriginOS 4. It will showcase when a user links their smartphone with the supported cars. In addition, some other features are expected to be only available in China, including the new Blue Heart Jr. V assistant and Family Health. The Blue Heart Jr. V assistant harnesses the powers of AI, whereas Family Health monitors the smart devices used by other family members.
The new OriginOS 4 will begin rolling out by year’s end. Notably, it will debut on China-based non-Android variants of the following smartphones, including the X Fold 2, X Flip, X90, X90 Pro, X90 Pro+, iQOO 11, iQOO 11S, and iQOO 11 Pro. However, the upcoming series, including the Vivo X100 and iQOO 12, will debut with it pre-installed.
