The double-tap gesture will arrive with Huawei EMUI 11


EMUI 11 will be the next version of the popular Chinese manufacturer’s user interface. It will hit most flagships launched in the past two years, starting with the Mate 30 series.

We do not yet know all the news that the EMUI 11 will bring, because the premiere of the user interface will take place only in a few months, but one thing is certain. Huawei will design EMUI 11 with a view to the widest integration with Huawei Mobile Services.

The Chinese have no choice and must focus on developing their own ecosystem, because there is no indication that the Huawei phones will return to receive services from Google in the near future.

Double-tap gesture in EMUI 11

Onboard the EMUI 11, there will also be pure technical innovations related to Android 11. We learned about one of them from the source website.

The upcoming EMUI release will bring the option of double-tapping the back panel, which will trigger some action associated with this movement – for example, launching the Assistant, silencing the phone or deleting notifications.

Most importantly, to use this solution, phones should not have additional sensors. All you need is an accelerometer and a gyroscope that you will find in every modern smartphone.

The sensors will detect two quick clicks on the back of the phone and pass the information. In the video above we can see an example of use of the so-called double-tap gesture.

To a large extent, this resembles the double click technology used by LG. In the case of the Korean company, not the back panel is knocked, but the screen. This helps to wake up and put the smartphone to sleep.

Which smartphones will receive EMUI 11?

An unofficial list of Huawei and Honor phones has appeared on the network that should receive a new generation overlay. You can find them in this post (link).

    My Mate 20 Pro already has knock gestures (double knock screenshot, knock and drag split screen, etc…) So implementation of this feature is just a matter of including screen downward as a parameter.
