Huawei provides a custom user interface on top of Android called EMUI. Currently, EMUI 9 is the latest interface based on Google's Android 9 Pie update. The company has been working on the EMUI 9.1 update lately and it has already arrived on a few devices. Huawei has now rolled out the list of next batch of devices, which will be receiving the update.
While the latest Huawei P30 series already come with the EMUI 9.1 update, the company promised that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Edition, Mate RS, P20 and P20 Pro smartphones will receive the update in July 2019. As for the next batch, the Chinese firm will be updating the Huawei P10, P10 Plus, Mate 9, Mate 20 Lite, Y6 2019, Y5 2019 and the Psmart 2019 in August 2019.
Apart from that, Honor 7X, 8x, View 10, 10 Lite, 20 Lite, Honor Play, Honor 10, 8 Pro and the 9 Lite will be receiving the EMUI 9.1 update next month. Soon after these devices are updated, the company will start rolling out the update for the next batch of devices.
EMUI 9.1 might sound like a pretty minor update but it's not. It does bring dozens of changes under the hood including the new EROFS file system, GPU Turbo 3.0 as well as camera improvements. It also brings the Moon mode feature found in the P30 line. Apart from that, the company has also added a new refined icon design and gesture controls.
