Rejoice stock Android fans, Lenovo is ditching its Vibe Pure UI in favor of stock Android for all of its phones moving forward. The news was delivered by Lenovo’s head of India marketing Anuj Sharma in an interview with Gadget 360.
In the interview, Sharma explained what went into the decision.
“There was a certain trend and we have now decided to cut the Vibe Pure UI off from our phones,” Sharma said. “So you will now get the stock Android which consumers have been asking for. There’s no more Vibe UI going forward and we are moving to complete stock Android for all our future Lenovo phones.”
From the quote, Sharma is pretty clear the main reason Lenovo decided to ditch its modified version of Android was because customers have been asking for it. That’s awesome news for stock Android fans. It’s also nice that a company is actually listening to its customers.
The first Lenovo phone to come with stock Android will be the K8 Note.
Motorola, which Lenovo purchased back in 2014, has utilized a more stock version of Android for years. The shift from Lenovo should bring its phones more in line with what’s offered by Motorola devices.
