The OriginOS Ocean is the second major release and brings overhauled visuals and more information available at glance.

It is worth noting the rollout will happen in four batches. The first will be starting in a couple of weeks, with the X70 and X60 series lined up for the beta, as well as the latest iQOO phones and S series devices.

All the phones will get a feature, roughly translated as “Child Guardian”, which will link the device to a parent’s device, and the grown-up can see how the phone is positioned, and therefore can relate what is the child’s posture. There are also functions like seeing how long the device is being used, which app is being used and can turn on vision protection.

In terms of safety and security, OriginOS Ocean will stop keeping passwords, biometric data and other records on cloud platforms unless specifically required by the user.
