Mobile platforms based on forks of Android, including Miui developed Xiaomi Technology, CyanogenMod, and Fire OS by Amazon, are likely to become three mainstream Android-based operating systems, according to Digitimes Research.

Other consumer OSes available in the market also include ColorOS developed by Oppo, Flyme OS by Meizu, and Smartisan OS by Smartisan Technology. In the business segment, there are Replicant OS, XobotOS, Samsung's Knox and PrivatOS.

However, since Google has said it intends to strengthen the security of the Android system, and Samsung also plans to integrate its Knox into Android, it remains to be seen if the development of security-centric Android-based OSes will continue, Digitimes Research said.
