Huawei Mate 9 Series EMUI 18.104.22.168 update changelog
- Screen Sharing: This feature allows users to share the screen during a video call. Not only can you share screen information, but you can also doodle freely on the screen and share information while chatting. This makes it as though you are having a face-to-face communication. This feature is handy whether you are teaching your family how to use the phone remotely, or discussing your itinerary with a partner. It also a great companion for online shopping with family or friends.
- Smart Charging Mode: The new smart charging mode learns the regular charging pattern of the phone through the built-in AI. This prevents the smartphone from overcharging which reduces battery life. When the smartphone is almost at 100%, it automatically slows down the charging process. This prevents the phone from being at 100% for a long time without unplugging it. You have to enable this feature because it is not active by default.
- Intelligent Peak Capacity function: This feature intelligently adjusts the peak capacity according to the battery’s own state. This also effectively slows down battery aging (this function is active by default).
- This update comes with the May 2020 security patch
