By tradition, the announcement of the new software product was preceded by an excursion on the achievements of Huawei. So, the number of users of EMUI 8 was 80 million people and 79% of compatible gadgets worked on it. In the case of EMUI 9, these indicators already amounted to 120 million and 84%, respectively. And the number of EMUI 10 users should reach 150 million.
The first devices that will receive EMUI 10 will be the devices of the Huawei Mate 30 family, and from September 8, the company plans to begin beta testing the shell on smartphones Huawei P30 series and other mobile phones. When it was created, the developers focused on visual changes to the interface, improved integration of artificial intelligence and smoother work in general.
In addition to improving the performance of the system as a whole, the focus is on energy efficiency and it consumes 6% less energy. We didn’t forget to upgrade the graphics overclocking function and achieved a 60% increase. They also increased the speed of wireless connections (Link Turbo technology) by 70%.
Do not forget to propose a widespread dark theme. Huawei reported that it was actively working to adjust the level of lighting and black. Dark Mode automatically adapts to third-party applications compatible with the dark mode of Android Q.
One of the EMUI 10 features that the company focused on was the ability to manage calls and content using various compatible devices. So, the user will be able to receive a call not only on a smartphone, but also through, for example, a tablet or a TV, and then voice control will come to the rescue.
Who will upgrade to EMUI 10
As part of the presentation, the company did not talk about those devices that will receive EMUI 10. It is only said that the beta version will come to devices of the Huawei P30 line from September 8, and Huawei Mate 30 will receive a stable version “out of the box”.
Nevertheless, journalists managed to get the information that the first updates will be received by all models of the Huawei Mate 20 family, as well as Honor View 20 and Honor Magic 2. We hope that the company will publish a list of devices that will receive a new version of the shell and a roadmap for its distribution.
