Major Chinese phone vendor Vivo introduced its OriginOS 3 on Tuesday in China. The major update brings features for a smoother user experience, such as allocating more hardware resources to the app running in the foreground and offering extra virtual RAM volume. Vivo claims that the system can keep 34 apps running simultaneously with the extra 8 GB RAM. The system can also record the app’s state when it is killed allowing for quick recovery when the app is reopened. Vivo utilizes motion blur to create smoother transition animations at the system level, creating a better experience for devices running on a 60 Hz refresh rate. The system also introduces a focus mode similar to that of Apple’s iOS, with selected notifications and features for different scenarios. The multi-app experience sees an improvement in OriginOS 3, with redesigned pop-ups and a floating bar. Gaming apps can now run in pop-ups when the phone is in the vertical orientation, a useful feature when studying gameplay strategies online while playing. Vivo’s soon-to-be-revealed flagship phone will be the first equipped with OriginOS 3. The brand also started insider tests from Wednesday for supported Vivo and iQOO devices. [ITHome, in Chinese]
