Vivo claimed in a statement that the genesis of OriginOS centers around three frontiers based on the smartphone consumer demands: design, smoothness, and convenience.” The Vivo OriginOS is the successor and an upgraded version of the FuntouchOS. The design of the OriginOS prioritizes widgets in a grid-like layout.

OriginOS: Design and Features

The new skin is made with a custom feature on the home screen that can be replaced and rearranged by the user according to their preference. These widgets are inspired by a puzzle game called Huarong Road, the Chinese variant of the Klotski sliding block puzzles. The widgets can also update themselves with notifications called “nano alerts.”  Check out, Vivo X60 Series Launched: Prices, Release Date and Specifications
