Huawei Developers Congress was held on August 9, in Dongguan, where EMUI10 was officially released.
Dr. Wang Chenglu, President of the Software Engineering Department at Huawei Consumer Business Group, said that EMUI10 is pioneering distributed technology applications for providing an all-scenario experience. Its development has enabled scenario-specific applications such as audio and video calls in all scenarios, business tasks across devices, and smart vehicle-mounted devices. One-time development for multi-device deployment can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide users with an all-scenario, smart experience.
At the conclusion of the launch event, Dr. Wang announced that an EMUI10 Beta version will be internally tested with Huawei P30 series and other models on September 8, and EMUI10 will be available on the next generation of Mate series products.
EMUI10 brings three updates: UX design, an all-scenario ultimate experience, and a new standard of smooth operation.
EMUI10 adds a system level dark mode to their devices. The dark mode optimises both color contrast between texts and dark backgrounds as well as the color of texts and system icons, and the end result ensures the visual consistency, comfort, and legibility. More UX design features of EMUI10 will be disclosed at the EMUI UX design concept launch event on August 10.
Distributed technology transforms cross-device experiences;
EMUI10 adopts distributed technology to support HD video calls among multiple devices. Users can make audio and video calls whenever and wherever they are. If there is an incoming call, users can choose to answer using a smart speaker. Or if it is a video call, they can answer through a TV, vehicle- mounted device, or any other number of integrations. You’ll probably be able to call someone from a smart fridge some time in the future as well!
At work, a smartphone and computer can share screens so that data can be exchanged easily through drag-and-drop. Such a seamless experience is made possible by revolutionary distributed technology.
To implement distributed technology, the hardware capabilities of each device need to first be virtualized.
In other words, what a device is capable of, such as in terms of its display, camera, microphone, or speaker,
is not based on the device itself but rather a shared resource pool.
In this way, each device can leverage needed functions or hardware capabilities from the resource pool or by sharing their capabilities with other devices. Therefore, for users and applications, different devices can be merged into one.
One-time development for multi-device deployment;
There are more diversified smart devices including smartphones and smart TVs, and with the popularisation
of application ecosystems, the number of devices and applications of a user is rapidly increasing. Users
require having the same experience as they use the same service in different devices and having access to services with any device no matter where they are. Consequently, developers face great challenges in multi- device adaptation, multi-language learning, and cross-device data convergence.
In the future era of multiple scenarios and multiple devices, application developers need to change when the
requirements are changed. As stated at the launch event, EMUI provides a distributed UI programming
framework and virtualizes hardware capabilities. As a result, developers can create apps for multiple devices
without needing to make adaptations for the same program.
The P30 series is the first to upgrade to the EMUI10 Beta version;
Huawei P30 series will be the first to upgrade to the EMUI10 Beta version for internal testing on September
8 and will be available for the Mate 20 series later on. During the launch event, Dr. Wang Chenglu also
announced that EMUI10 will be firstly launched in the next generation of the Mate series. You can learn
more about the latest models for internal testing and EMUI10 through Huawei’s official channels.
