Vivo Origin OS

Vivo has officially revealed it’s new UI Origin OS that is said to be a transformation to the existing Funtouch OS available in Vivo devices that is designed to offer a re-imagined widget system, advanced gestures, memory optimizations and an all new visual interface for users.

Vivo’s Origin OS Widget System offers a brand new desktop grid system, bringing the Huarong Grid that allows to access every flexible element of the desktop, the homescreen can be easily rearranged even if there are multiple widgets of mismatched sizes.

The widgets change their look to convey information like a sun or a rainy cloud for the weather app, shifting message bubbles for the messaging app and much more. It also offers tapping features that allows to reveal additional information and controls when you tap on a widget.

The company says that there are 26 gesture combinations that start with a tap at the bottom of the screen. It also features a new SuperCard, that can be accessed from anywhere on the device with a simple swipe (even when the screen is off), for quick and easy mobile payments.

OriginOS will come with Multi-Turbo 5.0 that is a collection of memory optimization techniques earlier available in Funtouch OS that adds more data more memory to RAM, optimizes memory usage and preloads application as per your needs.

It brings “behavioral wallpapers” called performance wallpaper that simulate complex motions, like the swaying of each individual petal of a flower. The wallpaper can also match the weather outside by drawing an accurate representation of clouds (matching cloud cover, wind speed and visibility of local weather conditions).

Vivo also unveiled the roadmap for Origin OS:
