The user interface of EMUI 9.0 has received support for the second generation of GPU Turbo 2.0 technology, which accelerates the processing of graphic tasks through intelligent analysis, providing increased productivity and reducing energy consumption. The new algorithm improves the sensitivity of the touch screen and reduces response time by 36%. App Assistant helps you set up notifications during games so that they don’t interfere with gameplay.
For convenience, in EMUI 9.0 the number of menu items was reduced by 10% by combining a number of sections and moving rarely used items into a separate tab. The navigation panel has been shifted to the bottom of the screen for more comfort when controlling a smartphone with one hand. In addition, in EMUI 9.0, important visual elements are moved in such a way as to reduce eye strain.
The new version of the user interface has increased the level of protection of personal information thanks to the integrated password storage, which allows you to safely store identifiers and credentials for various applications and services. All information is encrypted and does not leave the internal memory of the smartphone, which allows you to use the auto-complete function without the risk of leakage of personal information.
EMUI 9.0 introduces the ability to connect a smartphone to a TV or monitor wirelessly. This allows you to display the image on large screens for presentations, demonstrations of photos,s or broadcast games. Another useful innovation will be the ability to wirelessly send documents to print using the function of Huawei Share. It allows you to print documents directly from your smartphone, with just one click, eliminating the need to copy and send files.
The Digital Balance control panel analyzes the activity of using the smartphone and provides statistics on the time of work with each application, the frequency of unlocking the screen and a breakdown by period. Based on this data, users can set limits and adjust the working time with each application in order to be less distracted from work and spend more time with loved ones. In addition, the Wind Down mode will help prepare for sleep, allowing you to configure a gradual decrease in the brightness of the display and its transition to monochrome mode with muting notification sounds for a specified time.
Owners of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro will begin to receive an upgrade to EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9.0 starting in mid-December of this year.
