Dr. Wang Chenglu, chairman of the Huawei Consumer Business Group's software division said EMUI 10 introduces the use of distributed technology to provide a superior user experience across all device uses.
EMUI 10 enables connectivity between devices as well as between devices and applications that are developed once and work across multiple devices and in different uses. It will encourage the development of specific applications, innovative smart devices in vehicles and the execution of business tasks across multiple devices. One-off application development, which then runs on multiple devices, will increase efficiency, reduce costs, and provide users with a smarter experience. Due to the openness of EMUI, Huawei expects partners and developers to come together and create new innovative experiences. At the end of the presentation event Dr. Wang announced that the beta version of EMUI 10 will be available for testing on P30 Series devices on September 8, and will be available to users on the next generation of Mate family devices.
At least 150 million users
EMUI has 500 million users per day, which means that it is installed on at least as many devices, from 216 countries, and supports 77 languages. Regular updates also make the stats great. Upgrades to EMUI 8 and later to EMUI 9 reached 79 and 84 percent respectively, with at least 150 million users expected to opt for EMUI 10.
Since 2012, when EMUI 1.0 was introduced, Huawei has invested in research and development to continuously improve system performance. GPU Turbo technology increases the effect of graphic processing by 60 percent, while Link Turbo coupling technology enables higher data rates. By combining Wi-Fi with a 4G mobile network, data transfer can be up to 70 percent faster than using the mobile network itself. The EROFS file system improves read speed of Android data by 20 percent and Ark Compalier improves the performance of third-party applications by as much as 60 percent.
EMUI brings three innovations. User-centered (UX) design, superior user experience in all modes and a new standard of smooth operation. It also has a darker way to comfort. Studies have shown that people perceive brightness and color saturation differently depending on a dark or light background. Dark mode adjusts the color contrast between text and background as well as the color of text and system icons, resulting in visual consistency, comfort and readability.
EMUI adopts groundbreaking distribution technology to support video calls in HD resolution across multiple devices. When the phone rings, the user can choose to answer an incoming call via a smart speaker. However, in the case of a video call, it may sound via TV, vehicle screen or real-time video stream from the drone for friends to enjoy. At work, your smartphone and computer can share screens, and you can transfer data between devices using the simple drag-and-drop principle.
But for a seamless experience enabled by distributed technology, it is first necessary to virtualize the hardware capabilities of each device. What the device is capable of then depends not only on its hardware capabilities, such as its built-in display, microphone or speaker, but also on shared resources. Each device can borrow the resources it needs from the other, as well as share its resources. Therefore, for a user or an application, multiple physical devices can be combined into one virtual machine.
Huawei also pays close attention to security. In addition to improved user experience, where technology is at the forefront, it also builds a distributed security system. Using its proprietary hardware and software, it integrates an in-depth security system that utilizes the system chip architecture and the core of the operating system as the basis of security and trust. Only devices with user authentication can be interconnected and communication between them is encrypted from source to sink (end-to-end). This ensures complete security of data transfer between devices.
One development, use everywhere
The number of different devices, not just smartphones and TVs, is growing rapidly due to the popularity of device and app ecosystems. At the same time, customers require the same experience with the service, regardless of the device they have in front of them or their location. This is a big challenge for developers as they need to tailor applications to devices, languages and data sharing.
There is no doubt that the future will be paved with different uses and many different smart devices. Application developers must also adapt to this. EMUI 10 offers them a distributed user interface software framework and hardware virtualization capabilities. Therefore, they can create an app for multiple devices without having to customize it individually.
EMUI will facilitate ecosystem development
The number of Huawei smartphone users has been increasing rapidly in recent years. In the last few months alone, the company has sold 100 million devices, and EMUI will provide more applications to customers in the future and improve synergies in device experience. In doing so, it first finds benefits for all stakeholders, so Huawei will continue to open opportunities for tools and platforms like Ark Compailer and Huawei DevEco Studio. It will continue to work with developers and industry partners to create innovative experiences together in all conditions of device use.
EMUI 10 Beta and P30 Series
The P30 series smartphones will be upgraded to the beta version of EMUI 10 on September 8th for testing. For P20 series devices, however, an update will be available later. Dr. Wang Chenglu also said that the final version of EMUI 10 will be introduced for the first time on the next generation of Huawei Mate devices.
Huawei's products and services are available in more than 170 countries and are used by a third of the world's population, ranking them third in the world by mobile phone shipping. More than two million Watch GT smartphones and more than 10 million P30 series in traffic, with more than 200 million products shipped worldwide last year, Huawei ranks second in Europe in patent applications. In Slovenia alone, Huawei delivered 155,000 smartphones to its customers last year, with an average market share of over 30% in the Slovenian market.
Sixteen R&D centers have been established in the United States, Germany, Sweden, Russia, India and China. The Huawei Bussines Group Consumer Center is one of Huawei's three business units, covering smartphones, computers, tablets, cloud services … of the world.
