Huawei has officially announced the update and features of the EMUI 12 on its website, “which is was supposed to be next to the Android 12” for its smart phones and tablets, most of which were borrowed from HarmonyOS – but for phone users globally and not only in China. The latest EMUI version of 2021 came with many features and improvements compared to the last EMUI 11, so if you are lucky and your device is supported, then you will get a distinct user experience for the upcoming system, according to the Chinese company’s statement.
EMUI 12 for Huawei devices
As we mentioned, the all-new EMUI 12 interface for Huawei devices is similar in many aspects to the design and personality of the HarmonyOS that is being launched while we talk about all its smart devices in China from phones, watches, tablets, and even new versions Huawei GT watches as well as Huawei smart TVs. Although the new user interface came with several drastic changes, for some reason the Chinese company is silent about it and has not officially declared anything or held conferences for the new update as usual, perhaps because of the problem of the American ban? We may soon know why!
EMUI 12 Features
So, let’s talk in some detail about what distinguishes the latest Huawei interface next. But very quickly, you can learn about the main new features of the EMUI 12 in a nutshell in the following points:
- Lightweight user interface and simple options
- Smooth and distinctive navigation effects
- Full system fonts control capabilities
- Having a control panel full of options and customizations
- Full control center for notifications
- Better arrangement of the contents of the storage memory with easy access to any of them
- Huawei’s MeeTime communication app has been improved
- Better performance and system stability with a noticeable difference
- Improved privacy and security control features
The new EMUI 12 is coming with a new user interface with a creative design that is somewhat similar to the famous One UI from Samsung with attractive circular edges so that it gives you a smooth and comfortable using experience. The Chinese giant has finally listened to users’ persistent complaints about the heaviness of the interface and has improved it so much that it has simple colors, a mixture of black and white with blue to identify things.
Animation effects while on the move
The new EMUI update came with some new animation designs that reflect the movement of gravity and magnetism as you deal with most aspects of the system, which will give you a feeling of fluidity and lightness while doing anything on the phone, especially browsing the functions of the system itself.
Complete font control
Huawei’s new operating system for its smart devices came to support the ability to completely control the size and color of the fonts used within the system, which allows you to do so without any complexity, all you have to do is move the “slider” font forward or backward to do so!
Integrated control center for all system functions
Like we saw in the iOS Control Center features – and then also in the MIUI Control Center – the Chinese giant has finally taken the same approach and added the same features in its new Control Panel that contains all the quick settings you might want to interact with and that you can access just by swiping from the top right of the screen. As for the settings in this feature, you will be able to quickly access audio media playback, turn on or off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and some other things that you can customize and add later.
Compared to EMUI 11 – the notification control panel that was ‘detached’ from the quick settings window, now users have a whole new notification-only control center that you can access by swiping from the left pane at the top of the screen.
Huawei devices eligible for EMUI 12 update
At the moment, we have no information, or rather, there are no official statements regarding which Huawei phones will get the upcoming EMUI 12 update, or even when the new interface will be officially announced. However, if the company decides to start sending it to users, then it will reach the Huawei P50 series, then the Huawei Mate 40 and the Huawei P40 – then the Huawei Mate 30 series and also the P30 and then the company will continue to launch them for the older devices.
