Previously, Huawei rolled out a global stable update for its latest EMUI 9.0, which is based on Android 9.0 Pie to some Huawei and Honor smartphones. The brand rolled out the latest update to the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Honor Play, Honor 10 and Honor View 10.
With EMUI 9.0, Huawei is offering a simplified design inspired by nature, thus bringing natural experience with ambient natural sounds when using ringtone and alarm alerts. The design applies scenes of nature in everything from colour selections to default caller portraits.
In addition to that, the new EMUI 9.0 update supports a brand new mode of navigation – gestures. Users can now intuitively control their device with simple swipes instead of clicking on buttons, thus combining the goodies from Google’s Android Pie and Huawei EMUI 9.
