Funtouch OS 14 Introduces Smooth Envision Feature, Video Editing Tool, And MY Colour Palette Theme
As per Vivo, the Funtouch OS 14 introduces Smooth Envision, an innovative approach that makes the OS experience smoother inside and out. This new approach enhances system performance and responsiveness by reducing the number of persistent processes and optimizing RAM usage. This feature also adds up to 600MB of RAM to devices with 8GB and more RAM, making multitasking easier. The FuntouchOS 14 also includes a new app Retainer feature that ensures whitelisted apps are not closed manually and they are available for use.
Motion Blur is another feature in the Funtouch OS 14 which uses advanced algorithms to create smoother visuals when opening and closing apps on the home screen. Vivo claims that this software-driven approach enhances the smoothness of displays with a 60Hz refresh rate by 18.7% which ensures smoother visual transitions. The Funtouch OS 14 also introduces an upgraded small window feature which allows users can keep up to 12 small windows active in the background.
The OS also offers support for side-swipe suspension, giving users more control. In some scenarios, if the user wants to focus on one app but still monitor the other, there’s a new non-interactive mini small window mode introduced. The update also introduces a range of new personalization options such as customising the clock style on the lock screen. The Funtouch OS 14 also includes new always-on display styles and a new monochrome theme, called MY colour palette which offers a diverse section of colours to choose from.
Furthermore, Funtouch OS 14 also introduces a new video editing tool which allows users to create unique and captivating content without the need to rely on third-party apps. Last but not least, the new software version also allows users to adjust the video playback speed, and loop playback, as well as the Smart Mirroring feature which allows users to seamlessly share their screen without revealing any information in the notification bar.
