Huawei EMUI10 was officially launched during the Huawei Developers Congress which was held on 9 August, in Dongguan. 

Dr. Wang Chenglu, President of the Software Engineering Department at Huawei Consumer Business Group, said that EMUI10 is a pioneering distributed technology application which provides an all-scenario experience. Its development will enable scenario-specific applications such as audio and video calls in all scenarios, business tasks across devices, and smart vehicle-mounted devices. 

In the same stroke, one-time development for multi-device deployment can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide users with an all-scenario, smart experience. EMUI has enabled the connection among multiple devices as well along with other devices and applications, and it will further improve the service experience in additional scenarios. Likewise, the EMUI team adheres to a cooperative and open attitude and hopes that more partners and developers will join together to create innovative experiences in all scenarios.

At the conclusion of the launch event, Dr. Wang announced thatanEMUI10 Beta version will be internally tested with Huawei P30 series and other models on September 8, and EMUI10 will be available on the next generation of Mate series products. At this point, Huawei EMUI has more than 500 million DAUs in 216 countries, and supports 77 languages. Technological iterations have been made over the past seven years since the birth of EMUI1.0 in 2012. Huawei is dedicated to providing EMUI upgrade services and premium experience for existing users. 

Statistics show that the user upgrade rates of EMUI8.0 and EMUI 9.0 reached 79% and 84% respectively and that the number of users upgrading their phones to EMUI10 is expected to reach 150 million. In recent years, Huawei has invested heavily in EMUI R&D to continuously boost system performance. GPU Turbo technology has improved the efficiency of graphics processing by 60%, while Link Turbo network aggregation technology lets smartphones access multiple networks like 4G and WiFi for network speed 70% faster than using 4Galone. 

Other innovations like the EROFS super file system improves Android’s random read by 20%, and additionally, the Ark Compiler also smooths third-party applications by 60%.

EMUI10 brings three updates: UX design, an all-scenario ultimate experience, and a new standard of smooth operation. EMUI10 adds a dark mode to bring more visual comfort. Human factors research revealed that a colour’s brightness and saturation are perceived differently depending on a light or dark background. The dark mode optimises both colour contrast between texts and dark backgrounds as well as the colour of texts and system icons, and the end result ensures the visual consistency, comfort, and legibility. More UX design features of EMUI10 will be disclosed at the EMUI UX design concept launch event on August 10.

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. At work, a smartphone and computer can share screens so that data can be exchanged easily through drag-and-drop. Such a seamless experience is made possible by revolutionary distributed technology.

In recent years, the number of Huawei mobile phone users has increased significantly. Huawei shipped 100 million units in just five months this year, and in the future, EMUI will provide more applications and synergised cross-device experiences for users. Huawei has always adhered to finding mutually beneficial opportunities, and it was said during the launch event that Huawei will continue to make the capabilities of tools and platforms such as the Ark Compiler and Huawei Dev Eco Studio more open. 

It is also stated that Huawei intended to work with developers and industry partners for win-win outcomes and to jointly create innovative experience across all scenarios. Huawei EMUI team looks forward to joining hands with developers and partners to offer an all-scenario ultimate experience for users.
