BharOS is an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) operating system designed to be secure and powerful. This is an Indian-made operating system with a focus on security, reliability and scalability. It was developed by JandK Operations Private Limited (JandKops), a non-profit organization fostered in IIT Madras.
BharOS is based on Google’s Android project, so it’s not too different from Google’s stock Android in terms of UI and functionality. However, the phone does not come pre-installed with Google apps and services. As a result, apps such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Search will no longer be available.
Users can sideload almost any app they choose on their smartphone with BharOS installed and many apps. There are also workarounds like using the web version of his Gmail instead of the app, which is only available when connected to Google Play Services.
BharOS is designed to be secure and trustworthy with features like kernel patch protection, encrypted file storage and sandboxing. It also offers a secure boot process and secure boot loader, as well as a secure update system. It is designed to be easy to use with a graphical user interface. Various applications are pre-installed, such as web browsers and multimedia players.
Currently, there are no exact details by the developer as to when BharOS will be released or which smartphones will support it.
BharOS cannot yet replace Google’s ubiquitous Android OS, but it is a step in the right direction as an alternative to the Android and iOS ecosystems. Strong support not only from smartphone manufacturers, but also from those who use the OS is the key to its adoption.
