Huawei announced EMUI 11 in September this year. The stable version of the new software shell is now rolling out to the users of the Huawei P40, P40 Pro and Mate 30 Pro. The EMUI 11 update brings several new features.
EMUI 11 is the latest version of Huawei’s software shell for Android, but EMUI 11 is not yet based on Android 11. As a result, Huawei is currently lagging behind in Android version. It is still unclear whether Huawei plans to roll out Android 11, as Huawei wants to add features from Android 11 to Android 10 at a later date. This seems an unnecessary action if the manufacturer plans to roll out Android 11.
EMUI 11 brings among other things an improved interface that “integrated cross-device experienceMust offer. The “cross-device experienceShould make it easier to connect to other devices in the Huawei ecosystem. A “Smart Always-On-Display” has also been added and more privacy options are available. We come across other improvements in the notes app and the translation options.
EMUI 11 seems to be the last Android update for now before Huawei switches to its own operating system HarmonyOS. We don’t know yet when Huawei will roll out HarmonyOS.
Users of the Huawei P40 (Pro) and Mate 30 Pro will receive a notification as soon as the EMUI 11 update with version number 184.108.40.206 is ready for their device. The update rolls out in stages, so it may take a while before you can download the update.
