350 million smartphones already use the Huawei EMUI interface and its new version, EMUI 9, is expected to reach even more users. The beta phase has started today, and users who have a compatible smartphone can install it. Are you one of them?
The new version of EMUI 9 is supposed to be faster, prettier and more intuitive than the current Huawei/Honor smartphone interface. The company has just launched the test phase, but as usual, do not wrap yourself: who says beta says unstable software. In other words, you may encounter some day-to-day problems if you choose to install it.
Huawei limits the candidates to only 7 smartphones for now, and here are the lucky ones:
- Huawei P20 / P20 Pro
- Huawei Mate 10 / Mate 10 Pro
- Honor 10
- Honor Play
- Honor View 10
How to download the beta and install it :
To register for the EMUI 9 beta, you need to download the APK, Note that it may take a moment before the Beta project appears in the application.
The update is expected to arrive for some mid-range and low-end Huawei devices later. Hopefully the Project Treble framework — primarily available on devices that shipped with Oreo — means more devices get updated.
We will of course write other articles about EMUI 9 later. Do you like this interface or do you prefer the stock Android? Let us know in the comments below.
