The official spokesman has not confirmed the exact launch date at this time, but, like last year, Huawei will introduce EMUI 11 at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 (HDC 20) consumer event sometime in August.
After its announcement, the company will begin beta testing EMUI 11 for the Huawei P40 series, and the Huawei Mate 40 series will be the first set of devices to be released preloaded with the new operating system.
New “connectivity” functions remain unknown for the time being
EMUI 11 is based on Android 11 open source and is likely to have new smart home features, improved privacy and user data security.
The official also spoke about the revolution in the mobile operating system EMUI and its progress in recent years from version 5.0 to the recent EMUI 10.
It is expected that Huawei EMUI 11 will be based on the new Google Android 11, which is also expected in the fall or in the fourth quarter no later. However, it remains to be seen how exactly Huawei can use its system, also known as HongMeng OS, for possibly exclusive features. However, the current EMUI 10.1 already indicates the direction. Together with Huawei Share, the manufacturer demonstrates an AirDrop-like function for transferring data between two smartphones, multi-screen functions in combination with a PC and an alternative to FaceTime. Similarly, previous EMUI updates have optimized NFC transmission in conjunction with your own MateBook books.
The parallel integration of Harmony OS and Android 11 can also illustrate Huawei’s plans to transition to its own operating system in the long term. U.S. government sanctions continue to guarantee that many smartphone users will have to do without important Google services, including the Play Store. Meanwhile, the Huawei Application Gallery continues to grow, even if the software selection remains manageable. The official confirmation of the update for EMUI 11 and Android 11 remains to be seen. Like Apple and Samsung, Huawei rarely responds to such rumors and forecasts in advance.
