Android Q Supported Devices
Huawei has announced the date of the official release of a new version of the shell for its smartphones. EMUI 10. The update will be released on August 9 immediately after the start of a conference for developers, which will be held in China.
EMUI 10 is based on Android Q, so it will be characterized by all the features of the updated Google platform. In addition, the shell has Huawei’s proprietary add-ons, enhancements and applications tailored specifically for the company’s smartphones.
Key innovations in EMUI 10:
- UI Redesign
- New gallery content management features
- New personalization features: themes, wallpapers and fonts
- System Animation, Game, and Improvements
Judging by the screenshots leaked into the network, there are not many external differences between EMUI 10 and EMUI 9.1. The appearance of the launcher, status bar, settings, quick settings buttons and notifications for both versions of the Huawei shell are identical. However, a new section has appeared in the settings menu for fine-tuning the permissions granted to applications and games. This option allows you to give the application permission to use a particular function only while this application is running and running on the screen (rather than the background). Users who managed to install EMUI 10 note that the new version of the shell works much faster and smoother than EMUI 9.1.
It is noteworthy that there has not yet been an official release of Android Q (Google only released several test builds). This means that Google may release the release version of the update for Pixel smartphones on the same day a little earlier, and Huawei will formally be the first third-party manufacturer to adapt this update for its devices. Huawei is unlikely to be ahead of Google, so if the release of Android Q is delayed, the release of EMUI 10 may also be delayed for some time.
On the teaser EMUI 10, which Huawei published on Weibo social network, it says: “We use details to achieve the beauty of quality.” A rather meaningless phrase that does not reveal any additional details about the upcoming update release.
It is expected that Huawei at the event on August 9 will also introduce Hongmeng OS. its own operating system, which can be used on various types of devices instead of Android and Windows. At the same time, the presentation of a smartphone running on Hongmeng may be held, as reported by the Chinese state press.
The EMUI 10 test update is available only for the Huawei P30 Pro, and its release version will have to “fly” to at least 17 devices:
- P30 pro
- Mate 20
- Mate 20 pro
- Mate 20 RS Porsche Design
- P30 Lite
- P Smart 2019
- P Smart 2019
- P smart z
- Mate 20 X
- Mate 20 X 5G
- P20 pro
- Mate 10 pro
- Mate 10
- Mate 10 Mate 10 Porsche Design
First of all, the most relevant flagships will be updated, including the Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro, for which Android Q beta builds were released. In the coming weeks, Huawei plans to introduce the flagship models Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. they will probably be installed initially EMUI 10 shell with the latest security patches.
