A week after initiating EMUI 9.0 beta program for Note 10, Note 9 and V9 smartphones, Huawei sub-brand Honor is now rolling out EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9.0 (Pie) update in beta for the Honor View 10.
EMUI 9.0 on Honor View 10 currently comes as a beta update and will be available for users who have signed up for beta testing. The update shifts the build number to BKL-L099.0.0.108(C675E1R1P9-log) and weighs in at 3.92GB upon full download. With a beta update currently underway, it won’t be long till Huawei seeds a stable of EMUI 9.0 on the Honor View 10, probably after it’s done updating the 20 devices that were previously seeded a beta update to the same.
EMUI 9.0 will bring new controls inside the UI which now have been minimised considerably and features the all-new Nature UX which enables a minimal style UI through natural sounds and colours. The interface will employ a new gesture setup for task-switching and features the new and improved GPU 2.0 which works on newer algorithms to minimises the power required by a game for a lag-free performance.
Huawei has promised 12.9 percent better performance in the latest version of EMUI with better app load times of at least 10 percent compared to the EMUI 8. Huawei has also built its own version of Digital Wellbeing with means to track your usage, limit the time you use an app for and a wind-down mode for a Gray-scale display during the night, similar to what Google introduced in Android 9 Pie.
Google’s Android 9 Pie will further render support for gesture-based navigation, a new Quick Settings menu, advanced battery with AI capabilities and a new volume slider. Additionally, EMUI 9.0 will welcome a new Password Vault which will store all your usernames and passwords under one roof and can only be accessed through facial recognition or the fingerprint scanner.
EMUI 9.0 has already made its way to the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Edition, Mate RS Porsche Design, P20, P20 Pro, Honor 10, Honor V10, Honor Play, Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro, Mate 9 Porsche Design, Huawei P10, P10 Plus, Nova 2S, Nova 3, Honor Note 10, Note 9, Honor V9 and MediaPad M5. With the latest beta program, the update now reaches a total of 21 devices.
