Huawei has recently confirmed that EMUI 11 will appear in the third quarter of this year. The new version of the user interface will be based on Android 11.
Thus, after this there is only one question, which devices will receive the update. Thanks to new information from insiders, we could easily give an answer to it. But, before we continue, it is worth noting that this data is not officially and not confirmed by Huawei.
Which Huawei and Honor smartphones will receive the EMUI 11 update?
So, on Weibo and the forum of the Chinese community of Huawei, a screenshot was published showing a list of devices supposed to receive EMUI 11. It is assumed that this list of devices supporting EMUI 11 includes models from the first batch of smartphones that will receive an update earlier than others.
Here is the complete list:
- Mate Series: Mate 30 Pro, Mate 30, Mate 30 RS Porsche Design, Mate 20X / Pro, Mate 20 RS Porsche Design, Mate X.
- P Series: P40 / Pro, P30 / Pro.
- Nova Series: Nova 6 5G, Nova5T / Pro, Nova5z, Nova 5i Pro.
- Tablets: MatePad, Mediapad M6.
- Honor line: Honor V30 Pro, Honor V20, Honor 20 Pro, Honor 20s, Honor 20 Youth Edition, Honor 9X Pro.
Note that Huawei releases at least two major Android updates for its smartphones. Since the devices on the list are launched with Android 9 Pie or newer, they should receive the EMUI 11 update based on Android 11.
We have some official information regarding the development of Huawei EMUI 11. According to Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Software Department, the Huawei EMUI 11 will arrive in Q3 2020. This means that we are expecting this new system between July and September this year. Furthermore, he said that the EMUI 11 system will be an advancement of the EMUI 10. Of course, we do not expect the EMUI 11 to be on par with EMUI 10. It should be better and more seamless than its predecessor.
The company says that new features on EMUI 11 as well as compatible models will be announced later. We will keep a tab with Huawei’s pollen club and let you know as we get more information. Interestingly, there are also reports about the Hongmeng OS 2.0. According to reports, Hongmeng OS 2.0 system will arrive at the same time as EMUI 11.
Huawei will also further develop the “Distributed Technology” on the EMUI 11. With EMUI 10, this technology allows the system to support HD video calls among multiple devices. However, there are reports that with EMUI 11, it may be able to connect Huawei watches, tablets, notebooks, TVs, and other devices with different screens. The “Distributed Technology” should bring a seamless multi-screen collaboration.
