After announcing its custom-made Harmong OS, Huawei has lifted the curtain from the latest version of EMUI, EMUI 10 based on Google’s Android Q. Yu Chengdong, President of Huawei BG Software Department President announced the next version of EMUI OS at Huawei Developer’s Conference 2019, only days after Google rolled out the sixth and final beta version of Android Q.
As of right now, there are over 500 million daily active EMUI users and the company is hoping to reach the target of 600 million users by the end of 2019.
The company’s software is present in 216 countries around the world and today more than 120 million users have the last year’s EMUI 9.0 OS on their smartphones. Its current upgrade rate is the same as that of iOS 12 in the past and Huawei is targeting to push the latest EMUI version to more than 150 million users
The new version of the software gives Huawei’s own personal flavor by building on top of the features present in the Android Q. The company will roll out EMUI 10 beta update from 8th September starting with this year’s P30 series and will provide a plethora of new features for users.
Here are some of the key features of EMUI 10 revealed at HDC 2019 and see what’s new in EMUI 10:
With EMUI 10, Huawei has revamped the user interface of its operating system and has refreshed the phone’s look with more animations and rounder ap icons
The new version of EMUI is all about performance; the GPU Turbo mode offers up to 60 percent more processing power in EMUI 10 as compared to the EMUI 9.1. The company has also improved the jump between different wireless connections by up to 70% through its Link Turbo technology
EMUI 10 also provides a much more smoother mobile experience by doubling the performance of certain apps and according to the company, works even better than iPhone’s iOS.
The new EMUI 10 offers a system-wide dark mode for users which can automatically adapt to a third-party app.
Always On Settings
The latest version of EMUI also offers an Always On setting for the users ensuring that the phone’s display is always ready to do the user’s bidding.
Huawei is welcoming the developers to use any developing language that they want for EMUI 10 and the software will adapt to them to provide ease to the creators.
Shared Hardware Capability
EMUI 10 has also destroyed the barriers between different hardware and the users will not be limited one physical device instead they’ll be converged together to form a super device.
Virtualizing the Capabilities of Devices
The connection between different devices like TV, smartphone, smartwatch, etc. are limited to sharing of data but with EMUI 10, Huawei is looking to virtualize all the capabilities of individual gadget and merge them together virtually to form a device which can go beyond its own limitations.
At Huawei Developers Conference, the company connected the camera of a drone with that of a smartphone and projected the scenery captured by the drone to another phone 1300KM away.
