Huawei officially unveiled its latest EMUI 10 operating system at the Developers Conference in Dongguan, China. The company is looking to offer the beta version of EMUI 10 on September 8, starting with the Huawei P30-series of smartphones. The stable version, however, will first come with the upcoming next-generation Huawei Mate 30 series.
The Chinese major has invested heavily in EMUI R&D in recent years. Hence, the company claims to have boosted system performance, and introduced GPU Turbo technology for 60 percent better graphics processing. In EMUI 10, Huawei says that they are bringing a new user interface (UI) experience. Users will see a number of changes that have long been requested, and it includes the dark mode.
Huawei says it will allow the third-party developer to make use of the dark mode as well. They will simply be able to call an API. The magazine lock-screen, which shows stories, has also been upgraded. The company has additionally introduced Huawei’s Android Auto replacement – HiCar. It is noted that the HiCar is supported by over 30 automobile makers at present. This will work with over 120 car models.
“EMUI10 adopts revolutionary distributed technology to support HD video calls among multiple devices. Users can make audio and video calls whenever and wherever they are. If there is an incoming call, users can choose to answer using a smart speaker. Or if it is a video call, they can answer through a TV, vehicle-mounted device, or even send a real-time video feed from a drone so that friends and family can also enjoy the beautiful scenery,” said Huawei in a press statement.
