At the last HUAWEI Developers Congress, HUAWEI officially unveiled the new version of the EMUI10 proprietary user interface. Introducing the new product, Wang Chenglu, Head of Software Development at the HUAWEI Consumer Business Group, noted that EMUI10 is the first operating system of its kind that can work effectively in any mobile use case. Its creation opens up the opportunity for new opportunities, such as making audio and video calls from any smart device: from mobile and wearable gadgets to car multimedia centers. The same application can be deployed on all types of devices, which will significantly reduce development costs, increase development efficiency, and most importantly, offer users an identical interface and level of comfort on all available devices.
EMUI 10 has received three major improvements in interface design, usability in various scenarios, and stability. In addition, EMUI10 has a new dimming mode that is more comfortable for the eyes in the evening and at night. It optimizes the contrast, color of text and system icons against a dark background, resulting in a positive effect on the overall visual experience and ease of reading.
EMUI10 uses dedicated distributed technology to make HD video calls from any connected device. For example, when an incoming call arrives on a smartphone, the user can answer from a smart speaker, and a video call can be received on a TV or car multimedia center, show a video from a drone in a video call mode. At the workplace, you can combine smartphone and laptop screens to share data by simply moving files and get notifications on the big screen. All this becomes possible thanks to resource allocation technology. Its implementation required the virtualization of the device's hardware resources. In other words, all components of a device, such as a display, camera, microphone or speaker, are made available to all devices pooled.
The new version of EMUI received a distributed programming environment for user interfaces and technology for virtualization of hardware resources. This allows developers to create applications that are immediately compatible with different types of devices without having to adapt many times.
During the presentation of the new version of EMUI, HUAWEI announced its intention to make its latest developments more open, including the Ark Compiler and HUAWEI DevEco Studio. The company also plans to work with third-party developers and industry partners.
At the first stage, internal beta testing of EMUI 10 will be deployed on smartphones of the HUAWEI P30 series, later the shell will be available on devices of the Mate 20 series. During the presentation, Dr. Wang Chenglu also announced that the working version of EMUI 10 will be installed on the next generation of smartphones of the Mate series.
