At IFA 2018, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) announced EMUI 9.0, the next major update to the Android-based operating system (OS) from Huawei.

As one of the first Android Pie-based custom systems, EMUI 9.0 is claimed to offer a premium user experience. The EMUI 9.0 is currently on beta, which is now open for registration. Additional features will be launched together with the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 series.

The company claims that the EMUI 9.0 performs 12.9 per cent faster than its predecessors, and supports faster app launch speeds. For instance, EMUI 9.0 launches Instagram 12 per cent faster and Spotify 11 per cent faster. Furthermore, the company asserts that with a combination of Kirin 980 SoC and EMUI 9.0, will deliver an unparalleled user experience on the Huawei Mate 20 Series.

EMUI 9.0 comes with GPU Turbo 2.0, the second generation of Huawei’s innovative graphics processing acceleration technology, which is said to support even more games and at a greater capacity. The latest iteration of the solution is said to optimise intensive workloads and give the devices a performance boost on demand while reducing power consumption. Besides gaming, the solution also improves touchscreen responsiveness, network connectivity, the Uninterrupted Gaming mode, and more.

Another major feature coming with EMUI 9.0 is HiVision, which enables the camera app to recognise major landmarks and famous paintings and provide users with information using its augmented reality capability. Simply by pointing their smartphone cameras to an object of interest, users will be provided with information ranging from history to interesting facts. EMUI 9.0 also features a new Password Vault, where users can securely store their encrypted password with face or fingerprint for various services and retrieve easily whenever they need them, as per the company.

The EMUI 9.0 features a new Digital Balance dashboard, which tracks device usage metrics and allows users to set a usage quota for each app; and Wind Down.

At its official launch, EMUI 9.0 will support the latest Huawei devices. Additional features will be available after the Huawei Mate 20 series is launched.
