HyperOS also allows users to receive calls on alternate devices, use the smartphone’s rear camera as a laptop webcam, share mobile data, and more.
  • Privacy and security: HyperOS ensures the user’s privacy and security, with open-source components, advanced encryption, and granular permission management.
