Orange Pi, a software company with headquarters in Shenzhen Xulong, has just launched its brand-new laptop operating system, which is based on Android.

The newly unveiled OS is very much like a hybrid of Windows and Android since, although being based on Android, it has more of a Windows-like appearance and feel. It offers every fundamental functionality a desktop-oriented operating system should have.

The Orange Pi 800 keyboard PC is compatible with the most recent OS version. Soon, support for the Orange Pi 5 SBC will be introduced.

The OS is reportedly based on Android 12. We don’t know of any Android 12 SDK available for the RK3399 chipset, therefore that might be a brand error. Next year, the company plans to develop Orange Pi OS (OH), an Open Harmony variant, as well as Orange Pi OS (Arch), an Arm version of Arch Linux.

The company asserts that its primary goal in creating the Orange Pi OS was to give customers, particularly those who were experienced with Windows and macOS—two of the most well-known desktop operating systems—a comfortable and seamless user experience.

Due to the fact that it is built on top of the Android OS, its users may also benefit from the wide variety of apps available. We really don’t know a lot right now regarding the OS’s overall device support.

Speaking of the Orange Pi OS’s highlights, it provides a Windows-like experience with a UI that has a similar overall appearance. The OS also has sophisticated and unique privacy management capabilities. It already has Google Play Store loaded, enabling users to easily access a wide range of applications.

The company has also stated that they would soon offer a feature that will allow users to quickly switch between styles and themes inspired by Windows and macOS.
