The Huawei Developers Conference 2019 has just started, and the company has not kept us waiting to know its great news for this conference focused on software. Harmony, the brand’s own operating system, has been the first protagonist of this event, and now it is the turn of EMUI 10, the next major update of the company’s Android-based software.
And it is that Huawei has finally made official this new installment that uses Android 10 Q as a base, announcing the news that will arrive with the update, as well as the mobiles that will receive it and the date on which it will be available.
EMUI 10, all the information
The first thing that the company has announced will undoubtedly please part of the owners of Huawei devices: the deployment will begin at the beginning of next April, where a beta will be offered that users can install on their devices. However, the first compatible models will be the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro, in which the new version can be installed from September 8. Throughout the same month, the models of the Mate 20 series – Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Huawei Mate 20 X, and Huawei Mate 20 Porsche Design – will also have access to the beta. However, the specific day will not have yet to be revealed.
“The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will receive a preview version of EMUI 10 on September 8.
On the other hand, we must not forget that Huawei has already published the list of mobiles that will receive EMUI 10 and Android 10 Q, made up for the moment by a total of 17 different terminals, among which the devices of its subsidiary Honor are not included…
Later, probably sometime in October. The Huawei Mate 30 and 30 Pro will be the first models to hit the market with this edition from its release. So will the Mate 30 Lite, although the latest clues suggest that the Chinese variant of this terminal would arrive with the new HarmonyOS system inside. One detail to keep in mind is that, despite the above, Huawei has stressed that HarmonyOS is ready to give life to mobile phones.
“Huawei says that HarmonyOS is ready to be included in smartphones but intends to continue using Android. At least for now.
Dark theme, improved performance, and much more in EMUI 10
About the new version, Huawei assures that it is not “a simple update from EMUI 9.1”, but that the new delivery of its software will arrive loaded with new features, among them a totally renewed interface with a more modern appearance, animations of the system more fluent, as well as new applications that arrive at the software of the devices. In addition, it is indicated that the integration of artificial intelligence systems in the system has been improved.
Also included in this edition is the long-awaited dark theme, which, like the native of the system included in Android Q, will have the ability both to modify the appearance of the system’s interface, as well as the third-party applications that support it.
Huawei’s president of software engineering, Wang Chengdu, points out that the jump to EMUI 10 will be one of the biggest advances made by the company in terms of performance. On paper, features such as GPU Turbo would have been improved to improve their performance by up to 60%, as well as Turbo Link and EROFS ROM, by 70 and 20%, respectively. In theory, the fluidity of the system and the performance of third-party apps have been improved to such an extent that according to Huawei, now EMUI is superior to iOS in these aspects.
In this sense, a new feature is a “car mode” in the style of Android Auto, which enables a new interface on the vehicle’s screen from which to operate the mobile, view notifications, or control multimedia playback. And in the cars that support it, it is possible to check the car’s status from the mobile phone in real-time and carry out actions such as activating or deactivating the climate control.
Another of Huawei’s goals with this update is to improve integration between devices. To do this, the screen projection function has evolved again and now allows real-time interaction between the computer and the smartphone, all wirelessly. Files can now be shared by dragging them into the projection mode window, using the computer keyboard, and more.
Beyond all these news, there is, of course, all the changes and the best ones introduced by Google in Android 10 Q, such as improved management of permissions, support for folding terminals, or the introduction of the Project Mainline system, which promises to improve the situation of the operating system about the arrival of new versions, through the update of operating system components through Google Play.
EMUI 10.1 brings a new virtual assistant and more
When the rollout of EMUI 10 is still in process, Huawei introduced the world to its new P40 series, led by the Huawei P40 Pro. One of the novelties of this family was the inclusion of EMUI 10.1, a new version of the brand’s software, which introduces quite important changes.
The most striking is the inclusion of a new virtual assistant, “Celia,” who can be invoked with the voice command “Hey Celia.” It also includes a video calling app called MeeTime in the Google Duo style, Huawei Cast +, to broadcast games of our favorite video games to the TV, in addition to the Huawei AppSearch engine that allows downloading Google apps on those brand mobiles that lack Google services.
