Changes in UI
With EMUI10, Huawei launched Always on Display with vibrant colours that reflected the changing hues of the sky.
Now EMUI 10.1 presents 3D Rendered Always-on Display that separates digital figures from the background in a multi-layer construct, offering a three-dimensional experience to the user.
Users will also see three new fingerprint unlock animations on EMUI 10.1. Which Huawei says have been inspired by the elements of the earth.
Another nice change is Multi-Window functionality. Users simply swipe inwards from either side to bring out a sidebar from which apps can be dragged out.
Users can then work on two apps simultaneously – drag and drop images, text, and files from one to the other on the very same window.
Besides, floating notifications make it easy to respond to messages without having to exit from the current app.
Huawei is releasing its new EMUI 10.1 software
HUAWEI’S MeeTime is the latest video calling application. Among its many capabilities is full HD video calling up to 1080p between Huawei devices, while Huawei’s Facial Recognition technology ensures subject clarity in low light conditions, the Super Resolution algorithm compensates for low-image quality even when the signal reception is poor.
With this application, users can also share their screens with one another and mark-up areas should the need arise during a discussion.
Huawei Share has now been improved. Originally introduced to enable high-speed data transmissions between smartphones and PCs, this feature can now facilitate transfers between 1+8 devices including smartphones, PC, smart speakers, tablets, and more.
Huawei EMUI 10.1 includes MeeTime calls
EMUI 10.1 brings enhanced capabilities to this application such as picking up audio or video calls on PC, using PC applications to open files and hyperlinks on the smartphone, or even using the phone’s cellular internet connectivity on the PC with a single tap. This seamless collaboration between screens will enhance the productivity and efficiency of users, especially in an office set up.
Cross-Device Photo Gallery
Huawei’s distributed ecosystem allows users to access images across platforms through the Cross-Device Photo Gallery. For instance, if a user has a few images on their smartphone and a few others on their laptop, this cross-device connectivity will help them browse and search through all the files on one screen, provided they are connected to the same Wi-Fi AP network and logged into the same HUAWEI ID. Cross-Device Photo Gallery is now available in the EU region and will soon be supported in more countries.
EMUI 10.1 marks the international debut of Huawei’s voice assistant Celia. Just hold down the power button for one second or say ‘’Hey Celia.” Celia accesses the device hardware and uses AI capabilities to recognise objects, control media playback, send text messages, or even facilitate face-to-face translation.
To benefit from the all-scenario capabilities of EMUI 10.1, users may check for eligibility by going to Settings > System & Updates > Software Update on their devices, or go to Support (HiCare) App > Quick Services > More > Update to get the update in advance.
