Huawei has today announced that EMUI 10.1 is being rolled out to Huawei devices from Mid-June in the UK. First launched globally with the HUAWEI P40 Series, EMUI 10.1 makes the smartphone experience more private and secure, and even more seamless with the addition of new features that help users stay connected with family and friends, enhance their productivity, interact with multiple devices at once and keep everyday tasks streamlined. The update will also include new photography features.
Security and Privacy
EMUI 10.1 provides comprehensive protection with fully encrypted local and cloud data, as well as security features such as PrivateSpace, App Lock and Password Vault to protect user’s privacy. In addition, the microkernel of TEE has achieved CC EAL 5+, the highest level of security certification for a consumer device OS globally. This means that all transaction, authentication, and other highly sensitive operations are running in the TEE system, to deliver all-encompassing protection.
EMUI 10.1 paves the way for intelligent photography features with Golden Snap, making quality photographic results even more readily available. When shooting, instead of just getting a singular frame, the device now records a 4K moving image, for additional frames taken before and after the shutter button is pressed. AI Best Moment analyses these frames to help users get the best shot every time, whilst AI Remove Passerby and AI Remove Reflection makes it possible for unwanted photo-bombers and glares to be easily cropped out.
New functionality added to the Multi-Screen Collaboration allows users to easily answer video or voice calls hands-free directly through their PC and open files and hyperlinks on their smartphone with native PC applications for enhanced productivity.
Multi-Device Control Panel
The Multi-Device Control Panel allows users to easily see every connected device in their proximity, as well as intelligently recommending nearby devices that can be used to improve the current user experience. For example, if listening to HUAWEI Music with a HUAWEI Sound X nearby, it will suggest switching the audio output to the smart speaker for better sound quality.
HUAWEI Share now facilitates high-speed file transfer between the smartphone and other devices such as tablets and PCs. With HUAWEI Share on the HUAWEI P40 Series, consumers can stream music to a smart speaker, initiate screen projection and connect to Wi-Fi by tapping the device they want to connect to with their phone.
Simply wake up the voice assistant by saying “Hey Celia” or hold the power button for one second to launch. The deep integration grants Celia access to the device’s hardware and AI, enabling the voice assistant to support object identification, media playback control, text messaging, face-to-face translation and more.
First made available on the HUAWEI Mate 30 Series, EMUI 10.1 will bring HUAWEI Assistant to more devices. Powered by HUAWEI Ability Gallery to bring together four handy functions – global search, instant access, AI tips and newsfeed – HUAWEI Assistant helps users save time and ensures they maximise the full potential of their smartphone.
