vivo now has a new launch date for Origin OS – November 18
Vivo will introduce its fans to a “brand new world,” as the slogan for its new Origin OS says. The company was expected to unveil the interface on November 19, during VDC 2020 (vivo Developers Conference), but now we know it will actually be officially introduced a day earlier – November 18.
The Origin OS now has its own Weibo page, and the first post unveiled the date when a “Special Event” will take place in Shenzhen, China. The location isn’t surprising – it is the city next to vivo’s home of Dongguan and is part of the local so-called Silicon Valley, where many Chinese tech companies are based.
Vivo has not said a lot about Origin OS – we expect a simpler and more understandable design, features that are appealing and easy to use for customers outside China, and one rumor said there’ll be an easy switch between the company’s OS and stock Android. We’ll know more next Wednesday, but we do expect vivo to tease some new features until the official event takes place.
