Vivo releases new Android operating system for high-end devices13. January 2022
Vivo, a leading manufacturer in the Chinese smartphone market, released its own operating system, OriginOS Ocean, in early December. It offers direct access to apps, artificial intelligence (AI) features and enhanced privacy protection, according to Vivo. Vivo is another major Android device manufacturer developing its own operating system to compete against Apple’s iOS and Huawei’s HarmonyOS in the high-end market segment. The new operating system is designed to allow users direct access to various apps even when the screen is locked. Also included are services for entertainment, AI-powered fitness apps and advanced protection for private or sensitive data. The expected increase in demand would also mean an increase in smartphone production figures. Many components require CCC certification or SRRC certification so that they can be imported to and used on the Chinese market.
OriginOS Ocean will be available for some Vivo smartphones already shipped and all new devices. The number of users of Vivo handsets is reported by the manufacturer to be more than 400 million worldwide. As of Q3 2021, Vivo owned 23 per cent market share in China, followed by Oppo and Xiaomi, market researchers Counterpoint report. The high-end market for Android devices has recently been subject to greater competitive pressure in China after Huawei was ousted from the top position.
Electronic items and their components, such as smartphones, must conduct a CCC certification in order for the products to be exported to China or manufactured locally. The CCC certificate was introduced in 2002 and is comparable to the European CE marking. If you need CCC certification in the electronics sector, China Certification is an excellent partner for you. We have been advising leading suppliers and manufacturers on their CCC certifications for years.
