Firstly, there are rounded icons with more curves that go well with the new FullView display smartphones. There are also redesigned wallpapers and stock apps interface to highlight the content. Interestingly, there is a dark mode that several other Android OEMs and Google are trying to bring for the next iteration of their user interfaces.

Recently, Vivo smartphones come with an in-display fingerprint sensor and to make these visually appealing, the company has added some new lock screen animations. The Funtouch OS 9 also has an Always-On display. For now, there is not much clarity regarding the other features of these smartphones.

Notably, this announcement of the latest custom ROM happened in China. Usually, the same features and improvements are not rolled out to the Vivo devices in the global markets. However, we can expect the modified versions of the latest custom ROM to be rolled out to the company's notable devices such as Vivo V11 Pro in the near future. However, we should get an official confirmation regarding the roadmap of the update and the changes that it will bring.
