All forthcoming Lenovo smartphones will feature stock Android from now

Lenovo has announced that the company will now transition to pure Android experience, and that all forthcoming smartphones will feature stock Android Operating System.

Lenovo smartphones have as yet been powered by the company’s proprietary UI layer, Vibe UI, which was rebranded to Vibe Pure UI with the launch of the Lenovo K6 Power last year. The addition of ‘Pure’ in the branding was to signify company’s attempt to reduce bloatware at the time.

Lenovo’s latest decision to shift to stock Android is driven by consumer demand for a cleaner, smoother Android experience with no bloatware. It will also help Lenovo in providing Android updates quicker and to a wider portfolio of devices. However, like the Moto devices, expect the Lenovo devices to pack in a few software enhancements like Dolby Atmos and TheaterMax.

The company has shared that the upcoming Lenovo K8 Note which will be launched in India on August 9 will be the first device to ship with stock Android 7.1.1.
