EMUI 11 is built on three pillars: privacy, security, and user experience enhancement. The developers have updated the Always On Display feature with new themes and settings, redesigned the interface that is now focused on the center of the screen, improved sound, design, and added natural gestures.
One of the most notable changes in EMUI11 is the multi-window and split-screen feature. The application’s pop-up window “Smart Multi-Window” can or minimize at the right time. There is also a special gesture that allows you to launch the function. The window itself has an arbitrary shape, and the user can adjust its size.
For some, the app permission feature has become a welcome feature. Now the application in the background does not have access to the camera or microphone. Safety is also paramount here. App permissions are issued in the same way as in Stock Android, you can set them for all cases or only when the application is running. The system also monitors the work of utilities in the background and notifies if they are using any rights. In the settings, it is possible to monitor the access of the applications.
EMUI 11 offers more than we know
Another addition – when sending a photo to other devices, EXIF information automatically erases from the file. The other person will not be able to see the time and place stamps, or other information about the photo. The gallery now has the ability to open individual albums and expanded the number of AI algorithms for organizing images into folders. Changes have also taken place in notes, where you can now add passwords to individual entries, hide them if necessary.
Voice assistant Ceila, now understands 7 different languages, and it will also be adapted for more. They also expanded the geography of MeeTime calls. At the moment, Huawei has not announced a specific release date for the stable EMUI11. The only thing that can be said with a high degree of confidence is that the flagships of the Huawei Mate 40 family will be the first to receive the new version of the user interface.
