Huawei confirms EMUI 10 reveal date, coming next month

The Huawei P30 Pro will undoubtedly be one of the first devices to receive EMUI 10.

EMUI
9.1
is the latest version of Huawei’s Android skin on the
market, but the company is also hard at work on EMUI 10.
Fortunately, the Chinese brand has revealed when we can expect more
details.

Huawei’s
Chinese website
has listed the agenda for the Huawei Developer
Conference keynote, and Phone
Talks
has spotted a slot devoted to EMUI 10.0. “Linking
things to the future — Huawei EMUI 10.0 released,” reads the
title of the slot according to machine translation.

So what should we expect from EMUI 10 (or EMUI 10.0)? Huawei
generally reserves nice, round numbers for updates that include a
corresponding major Android version update too. EMUI 8 came with
Android
8.0 Oreo
, while EMUI 9 delivered Android
9 Pie
goodness. In other words, EMUI 10 will offer Android
Q
as well.

What will EMUI 10 bring to the table?

EMUI 10 based on Android Q means some of Google’s new features
will likely land on Huawei devices too. Prominent Android Q
features include Smart Reply, a Quick Settings panel, and
overhauled permissions.

The Chinese manufacturer has also managed to arguably leap ahead
of Android Q in several areas. Huawei has offered full-fledged
gesture navigation (without a back button), a system-wide dark
mode, and Wi-Fi sharing via QR code in current phones for a while
now.

Everything
new in the fifth Android Q developer preview

The fifth Android Q developer preview is here! The first and
second developer previews may not have brought a ton of user-facing
changes, but that’s certainly not the case for Android Q beta 3. A
system-wide …

EMUI 9.1 has also brought the EROFS file system (for faster
speeds and storage savings), an AI video editor, GPU Turbo 3.0, and
more. So we’d expect performance, AI-related features, and gaming
to remain a focus in the new update.

It’s not clear at this stage whether Huawei will shed light on
its alternative
OS
plans at the conference, or if features from the platform
will come to EMUI 10. In any event, you can be sure that Huawei
will want to get EMUI 10 out of the door before the
White House
does an about-turn regarding U.S. companies dealing
with the firm. What do you want to see from the next EMUI update?
