- Lenovo will soon launch laptops powered by their new Esper Foundation OS.
- This OS for laptops will be based on Android 11, with a special emphasis placed on user customizability.
- Experts believe that this OS will be the next big rival to Windows OS< all the while deleting ChromeOS from the scene.
Lenovo is soon doing what many thought would not be possible at this point – creating a working Android-based rival to Windows OS. While macOS still stands strong against Windows, its Android-based rival – the Google ChromeOS – has been quite weak so far.
The failure of ChromeOS to live up to the computing standards set by Windows made experts believe Android will not be able to pull it off. However, Lenovo has decided to take the fight head-on, and they seem to be doing so in the right direction.
Lenovo has just announced the introduction of the Esper Foundation OS. Yes, the name is pretty long for an OS. I thought so too. But it’s because Lenovo did not completely build this OS. Instead, it is a collaboration between Lenovo and Esper – an enterprise-level Android Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform.
So how is this different from ChromeOS, which is used on Android laptops?
The first distinction is the fact that the Esper Foundation OS will not be for everyone. It will start out as an Enterprise-grade OS built primarily for large organizations and the overall industry. It will have a focus on customizability so that enterprises can tweak it as per their requirements.
The first Lenovo device that will be launched with the Esper Foundation OS will be the Lenovo ThinkCentre M70A. It’s an all-in-one desktop PC with 12th Gen Intel Core i9 processors, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, and 512GB SSD. This computer will be released by the end of 2023.
