Huawei: 100 million EMUI 11 users
In a seperate new, Huawei recently reported on the process of distributing the EMUI 11 firmware; a corresponding message appeared on the Weibo social network, supported by a teaser. It turned out that this firmware is already installed on devices of 100 million users. And this is definitely a success.
Recall that EMUI 11 debuted only in September last year; and its release for different devices is divided into stages. Taking this into account, the real-time for the distribution of the firmware is much less than six months. Of course, Apple smartphones update faster, but this happens in completely different conditions.
Huawei’s first smartphone with Harmony OS
A few days ago, Huawei Technologies secured the right to use the Huawei P60, P70, P80, P90, and P100 trademarks. This indicates that the company is rather optimistic about the future; and is not going to ditch the brand that it has built over the years so easily.
Recall that since last year, Huawei has not been able to freely purchase SoCs and other components from American companies. Manufacturers who want to do business with Huawei have to obtain a license; but it does not allow shipping all the necessary components. As such, the upcoming Huawei P50 lineup will use last year’s Kirin 9000 SoC.
It is expected that the Huawei P50 smartphone will be the first device out of the box to run the new operating system Hongmeng OS, or Harmony OS, as it is called outside of China. Also due to debut in this smartphone is the Sony IMX800 image sensor; which will be the world’s first mobile 1″ optical format sensor.
According to the latest reports, the presentation of Huawei P50 has been postponed to May this year.
