Lenovo is dropping the Vibe Pure UI for stock Android

Lenovo is dropping the Vibe Pure UI for stock Android

In five days the K8 Note will arrive in India and it will be the first Lenovo smartphone without the Vibe Pure user interface and will ship with stock Android instead. The company is dropping the custom UI for all its future phones as well, head of product marketing at Lenovo confirmed.



In the last 11 months, the company looked carefully what it had regarding software perspective. Cutting the Vibe Pure interface was the decision Lenovo had to take to stay relevant to its fans.
A few enhancements still will be present on the OS to make full use of techs like Dolby Atmos and TheaterMax.
Chinese users aren’t fans of the stock Android compared to custom skins. On the other side of the spectrum is the Indian market where a bloatware-free OS was preferred. Lenovo underlined that cutting costs is not a reason for ditching the Vibe Pure UI.

With a stock Android, the phones will be easier to update so new versions will arrive sooner and support for an extended period will be possible. All Lenovo phones from the K series, launched in 2017, will receive Android O update once it is pushed by Google. The timeline may vary depending on chip manufacturers and carriers though.

Android 8.0 Oreo is official [Updated]
Update: BlackBerry has officially confirmed that the Keyone will be getting the Android Oreo update. There was, however, no word on when the roll out will begin. Original story follows: As expected, Google today decided to finally unveil the moniker of the next iteration of Android. Known simply as "O" for the past few months while a few Developer Previews and public betas went out, it now officially has a full name. It's Android 8.0 Oreo.
So yes, the most rumored name actually turned out to be what Google chose to call its latest sweet treat. It's only the second time in Android's history when there's a commercial partnership involved - for version 4.4 KitKat Google teamed up with Nestle (which owns that brand), and this time around the search giant managed to get Mondelez on board the co-branding train.
