Next version of OriginOS arriving on December 9, to be called Ocean

Yordan, 29 November 2021

The OriginOS is vivo’s platform of choice for its Chinese phones and it's about to get a new version. The new release is coming on December 9 and it will be called OriginOS Ocean. According to reports at least a dozen phones will be in the first wave to receive it.

The new OriginOS (which is technically a UI on top of Android’s kernel) will bring improved features for mobile use, as well as easy cross-device navigation with PC and file transfers. Design-wise it will keep the grid system with multiple widgets and gesture navigations which became a hit among vivo users when the first OriginOS came out.

The company will release the official closed beta list once the event takes place in 10 days, but leaksters already revealed its preliminary version. Unsurprisingly, they are mostly flagships, as well as a handful of mid-range phones from the S series. Here’s the full list, but bear in mind it is about the Chinese versions of these phones:

why Origin OS is just for Chinese version phone??? what if we want to have them in other region???

No mention of the X30 and X50 models though. I'd love to see this new OS version coming to X30 Pro.
