Today all the prominence has been taken by HarmonyOS, the final name that receives Huawei’s unique operating system, but the company has reiterated its commitment to Android and its own EMUI customization layer. Today its latest update has been made official, EMUI 10.
EMUI 10 focuses once again on performance, ensuring that the performance will be maintained with a reduction of 6% for three years, although there is no lack of other novelties in its design and of course the dark mode.
Dark mode is here
The dark mode is one of the novelties of Android Q and will also be present in the customization layer of EMUI 10. The company has put special dedication in controlling that the dark mode is readable.
This dark mode does not apply only to system applications, but third-party apps go dark too intelligently, trying in any case to maintain the readability and usability of the interface.
EMUI 10 arrives with a redesign in its interface. At the moment we have not been able to see it too much, but it seems that the company is taking inspiration from the golden spiral for the design of the system icons and the Morandi painter for the colors, in addition to betting on rounded edges and an interface with the navigation mainly at the bottom of the window, as in Samsung One UI.
This design includes a lot of white space, larger fonts and more simplified lines and is supported by new animations, more dynamic and smooth that are a bit reminiscent of those of iOS and that are supported by gesture navigation.
Intelligence even on the lock screen
A curious novelty of EMUI 10 is the use of artificial intelligence to analyze the content of the images displayed on the home screen and place the text in a place where it does not cover the content. You can see an example of the result in the previous image.
Connectivity above all
Support for a multitude of devices is one of the main strengths of HarmonyOS, but it also has its representation in EMUI, in this case in the facet of the interconnectivity with other devices in Huawei’s own ecosystem, like its smart speaker or even drones.
This connectivity includes between the mobile and the PC, improved by wireless projection to a PC, which now allows you to drag files to the “virtual” screen of the mobile to copy files from the mobile to the PC and vice versa.
Android has Android Auto and EMUI has its own car mode, HiCar. With it you can, after connecting to the car, adjust the music or the car navigation in real time and even turn on the air conditioning in advance or join video calls.
In Huawei and Honor mobiles with OLED screen, the AOD mode has new colorful images to choose from and decorate the mobile when we are not using it, with various designs of clocks and decorations.
Huawei is very proud of its new compiler, which ensures that it can considerably increase the smoothness of the system and avoid small stops during use. It is a compiler capable of compiling Java, C and C ++ code and that the company has decided to return to open source, such as HarmonyOS.
The list of compatible mobiles will probably grow in the coming weeks, but for now we know that the launch will begin on September 8th as a beta for the following mobiles:
