Huawei has started rolling out EMUI 9.0 OS Predicated on Android 9 Pie to P20 series of smartphones.
The new update brings all the Pie goodness including full-screen gestures and a brand new UI. The EMUI 9.0 update also brings attributes like GPU Turbo 2.0, HiVision visual search, Password Vault, Digital Balance dashboard, and more. The EMUI 9.0 upgrade is rolling out currently only to Chinese users, and global users might have to wait a little before the rollout begins internationally.
The upgrade is rolling out over-the-air in China, so it might be some time until it reaches all users. Last month, Huawei had started the rollout of EMUI 9.0 to nine of its own smartphones, and also the P20 and P20 Pro were part of that record.
As mentioned, EMUI 9.0 brings GPU Turbo 2.0, which is intended to optimise intensive workloads and provide an on-demand performance increase into the apparatus while decreasing power consumption. It also brings a new Password Vault which helps users keep their encrypted password with fingerprint or face for a variety of services. There is also an Uninterrupted Gaming Mode to meet the needs of mobile players.
EMUI 9.0 also brings a new Digital Balance dashboard that allows users to track device usage metrics and let them place the usage quota for every program. Using onboard AI capabilities, EMUI 9.0 brings HiVision that empowers the camera app to recognise major temples, paintings, and even constructions surrounding the environment and supply users with the appropriate information using a coating of augmented reality. Other features include new navigation gestures, multiple backup options, one-handed controls, and enhanced Huawei Share features.
Other smartphones that are a part of the EMUI 9.0 update list would be the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Design, Mate RS Porsche Design, Honor 10$32,999, Honor View 10$27,499 (known as Honor V10$52,812 in China), and Honor Play.
