Vivo has been relying on its in-house FunTouchOS Android skin since 2014. That, however, appears to be changing pretty soon as the company is reportedly going to shift to a new version of OS built on top of Android dubbed Jovi OS. furthermore, if the report has to be believed, the Jovi OS might very well debut with the upcoming Vivo X30 series of smartphones.
Vivo’s Jovi OS could debut alongside the Vivo X30 series
Ge Yanan, who happens to be the FunTouchOS Project Manager recently made the news official on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo that the company is soon going to replace FunTouchOS with Jovi OS.
hank you for having us, we will definitely explore forward!
In the comments section of the same post, Ge Yanan confirmed that Jovi OS is indeed the new OS for Vivo and will be announced alongside the Vivo X30 series.
So far, the only thing that we have received as far as the Jovi OS is concerned is a logo that does not reveal much about it. However, judging the logo itself, we can safely expect a design overhaul coming up with the new update. The geometrical dimension lines that are present on the logo might very well signify the construction of the new OS, but it could also mean that we might be getting the option to redesign the icons in the Jovi OS UI, much like the one found on the recently announced ColorOS 7. All of this, however, is a set of speculations as of now, so we would recommend it to be taken like that only.
As of now, this is all we know about the Jovi OS, but we are sure to receive more information on the same in the coming days as the launch date of the Vivo X30 series is not too far from now.
Speaking of the Vivo X30 series, the Vivo X30 will come in three color variants – Black, Silver/Blue gradient, and Orange gradient. There will be a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top of the device.
Vivo X30 will be the company’s first device to be powered with Samsung’s Exynos 980 SoC which is capable of supporting both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G modes. Furthermore, courtesy of the 3C certification the Vivo X30 has confirmed that the device will have support for 33W fast charging.
In another promotional video for the Vivo X30, the company confirmed that the device will feature a whopping 60X zoom. Speaking of the cameras, the Vivo X30 will feature a quad rear camera setup. Since there is no rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and since the device is not a budget smartphone at the very least, it is safe to assume that we will be getting an under-display fingerprint scanner coming up with the Vivo X30.
