Today, Huawei EMUI took to its official Weibo handle to announce that EMUI 11 users now exceeds 100 million. In the announcement, it is hard to miss a phrase that reads “the next stop, HarmonyOS”. This suggests that the company will be putting more effort into its HarmonyOS now. In all honesty, competition is always a good thing. If we have more than just iOS or Android for smartphones, things will be easier, cheaper, and better.
EMUI 11 was released at the 2020 Huawei Developer Conference on September 10, 2020. In addition to the increase in system fluency, EMUI 11 also adds smart multi-windows, multi-screen collaboration, smooth connection of large files, and smooth connection of video alarms. Furthermore, this system restricts advertising tracking and other functions. Users who upgrade to EMUI 11 will be given priority to upgrade to Harmony OS 2.0.
Huawei Mate 40 and 40 are getting new EMUI 11 update with improvements
The update reaching the Huawei Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro has 22.214.171.124 SP1/SP2 version number. The changelog content only mentions system optimization and stability improvements. Moreover, the update improves some animation effects in the interface. Curiously, the Huawei Mate X2 also got its first software update that brought improvements for the interface display effects.
The new update is rolling out incrementally. So, you need to be patient since it can take a few days to reach all eligible units. However, to push a rapid upgrade, Huawei opened a membership service registration application method. After you enroll in the program you will receive the update in just a couple of hours.
As mentioned above, the Mate 40 series was revealed in October last year. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro packs the Kirin 9000, a 5nm chipset that ensures full 5G network support. The demand significantly exceeded supply – smartphones were in short supply and it was not so easy to buy them close to their release.
Earlier this month, the real sales volumes of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro have become known. Chinese statistical service QuestMobile was named the most popular smartphone in China. Huawei Mate 40 Pro currently sits in the 4th position with 4.51 million active devices in the Chinese market. The total sales of the Mate 40 series around the world are still unknown.
It’s not a surprise to see Huawei receiving huge support from Chinese customers. Since the first days of the ban, the company demand has increased in the domestic market. Chinese customers are showing the company all their patriotic support.
