Vivo has officially announced its new UI dubbed OriginOS. The new skin has been completely remodeled from the ground up, making it quite distinct from FuntouchOS. Vivo aims to create a new digital world with OriginOS. We’ll take a look at some of the features of the new custom ROM.
OriginOS promises several enhancements in terms of performance. Vivo says it has enhanced the overall mobile phone experience – from the home screen to the wallpapers and from pictures to the game board; almost all functions have been upgraded. The overall experience is said to be smooth, convenient, and secure.
On the home screen, OriginOS introduced a brand new desktop grid system, bringing the Huarong Grid. It can flexibly and freely show the charm of every element of the desktop, and you can create a variety of imaginative layout combinations through each basic unit.
On the wallpaper, OriginOS brings behavioral wallpaper which is officially called performance wallpaper. vivo engineers condensed the blooming process of flowers into just a few seconds, making the scenery that is usually scattered in the rush of time extraordinary and full of vitality.
The message notification also saw some improvement as OriginOS brings atomic notifications which can extract key information and can always tell you what you care about at the right time. It covers typical life scenes, and sends reminders in an elegant way, so as not to disturb the user and yet to avoid missing a message.
In terms of operation, OriginOS comes with brand new navigation gestures. There is no need to read complicated guides as the gestures are easy to understand. OriginOS arrives with 26 navigation combinations that can be completed by just clicking and operating, which almost covers mainstream operation methods.
In addition, OriginOS brings an atomic component library which carefully summarizes all atomic components and provides a variety of simple and convenient ways to retrieve them. In addition, dragging icons from the component library and placing them in the application interface can quickly generate small windows to meet multi-task operation scenarios.
The weather widget is also updated to optimize the weather information display form. It also intuitively display the temperature information. With a temperature color card with 90 color values, you can clearly perceive changes in cold and warm at a glance.
Further, OriginOS brings a brand new super card pack. Whether the phone is in the off-screen state or the interface has been navigated away from the home screen, the card pack can be called up with a single swipe. At the same time, the card package can customize the payment types that can be displayed.
For the core system optimization, OriginOS supports the latest Multi-Turbo 5.0 which brings three new technologies – memory fusion, process optimization, and application preloading. In terms of memory integration, Vivo innovatively integrates RAM and ROM through algorithm optimization. Part of the idle ROM space can be called to assume the function of RAM operation, which greatly improves the experience in background multi-application scenarios. In this way, more applications can be opened and run without the phone freezing.
Specifically, on a mobile phone with 8GB of RAM + 128GB of storage, the experience is equivalent to when the memory capacity is equivalent to 11GB, while on a mobile phone with 12GB+256GB, it is equivalent to 15GB of RAM, which greatly increases the availability of equivalent memory.
The second technical process optimization is in-depth control and optimization of system resident processes which reduces the memory usage of 100-200MB system operations. It also reduces system concurrency conflicts, increases concurrency capacity by 20%, and creates more room for mobile application operation.
The third point is application preloading. Through the application of preloading technology, users can intelligently preload applications that are ready to be opened, greatly reducing application startup time. This in turn increases application opening speed and reduces cold starts by 40%.
In addition, in terms of photography, games, and parallel worlds, Vivo’s OriginOS also brings many new features. Check out more of these features from the image below.
