The report further suggests the upcoming OS will bring the best Android UI customizations. Also, it is now confirmed that Vivo will release any new hardware but the company is expected to launch the Vivo X60 series with the debut of Origin OS later next month in November or in December.

It should be noted that this is not the first time the company will rebrand its custom skin. Last year also the company dropped its plan of replacing FunTouch OS with Jovi OS after multiple consultations with its other team members. And the users have to continue using FunTouch OS rather than JoviOS. And in place, the company launched the new version of FunTouch OS 11 this year. However, these are just speculation and can be taken with a pinch of salt.

But this time the company seems to be serious about adopting the new custom skin that will bring visible improvements over the current Funtouch OS.
