Future Lenovo smartphones might be more natural looking – and refreshed all the more routinely, the organization guarantees in a statement.
Lenovo’s in-house smartphone programming is going implement the method of the dodo. On Friday, the organization affirmed that it’s ending the development of the Vibe Pure UI, a custom experience that transported on Lenovo smartphones running Google’s Android OS, for example, the Lenovo K6 Power the organization sold in India. Rather, it’ll receive something nearer to the stock adaptation.
“What we have done in [the] last 11 months is we looked at what we had in terms of software perspective,” Anuj Sharma, Lenovo’s head of product marketing, told Gadgets 360 in an interview recently. “We have been close to the consumers and we saw what they were asking for. There was a certain trend and now we have decided to cut the Vibe Pure UI from our phones, [so] you will now get the stock Android which customers have been asking for.”
The inspiration driving Vibe Pure UI was to decrease bloatware, the undesirable applications that bearers, producers, and programming designers preloaded on to smart phones these days. In any case, it wasn’t completely effective, as indicated by Sharma. “[In] China […] Android isn’t a very popular choice when you compare it to custom skins, [but] this is something for which Lenovo pushed really hard,” Sharma stated. “For the Indian market, the preference was with the stock Android experience.”
Lenovo isn’t totally deserting its customizations; however, the organization’s future programming will look a ton nearer to the form that ships on Motorola smartphones like the Moto Z2 Force and Google’s Pixel-marked gadgets. Except for Dolby Atmos, Dolby’s sound upgrading programming tech, and TheaterMax, a wide-edge mode that extends video applications to fill the whole screen, prospective handsets like Lenovo’s K8 Note and K6 Power will include minimal design tweaks.
As an added benefit, stock Lenovo phones will get updated “more efficiently” to new versions of Android, Sharma said. The Lenovo K8 Note will be the main smartphone to deliver with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. What’s more, Lenovo’s “K series” will receive an update to Android O — the most current form – in the not so distant future, with courses of events changing somewhat on chip maker support, inward advancement, and testing prerequisites. “It […] makes it easier to support for an extended period of time,” he announced.
“There’s no more Vibe UI going forward and we are moving to complete stock Android for all out future Lenovo phones,” Sharma stated. “It was a lengthy process to get done [as] Lenovo had to align all markets where it sold Android devices. This is a huge transition for our business perspective.”
