Albeit not too successful, Huawei’s first foldable – the Huawei Mate X – is getting some rather good software support by the phone maker. The company did indeed just announce the beginning of an open beta program of EMUI 10 for the premium device.
EMUI 10 Open Beta Kicks Off for Huawei Mate X
As we know from previous reports, EMUI 10 is based on Android 10. If you own the handset, you’ll have to go to the “Services” app and tap on “Updates”; there you should find the EMUI 10 Open Beta update. It should be noted that the Services app needs to be updated to the latest version before updating the smartphone.
Since we’re talking about a foldable phone, Huawei brought some special optimization for the Mate X; one of these is called “Smart Split Screen”. As the name suggests, Smart Split Screen is used to split the screen into multiple section in order to take advantage of the larger than usual display; thus bringing multi-taking to the next level.
