Huawei is one of the biggest China-based smartphone OEMs. This company’s profits have been rising for quite some time now, and they’ve released a number of really compelling tech products this year, including a number of smartphones, a couple of tablets, and the company’s Android Wear-powered smartwatch, the Huawei Watch. That being said, Huawei is also developing their very own skin for Android called Emotion UI (EMUI). This Android-based skin is actually in version 3 at the moment, and Huawei is already working on version 4.0 which will be based on the recently announced Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
We know that Huawei is currently developing EMUI 4.0, but we didn’t have any official info regarding it. Well, the man in charge of EMUI 4.0, Meng Qin Hai, has now confirmed that Huawei is going to release EMUI 4.0 before the end of this year. He did not reveal any additional info about the UI, but according to the newest leak, we at least know which devices will get the update. If you take a look at the image down below, you’ll notice quite a few devices being listed here in line for Android M update, many of which we’ve already talked about. Under the ‘Huawei’ listing you can see the Ascend P8, Mate7 and Honor 6 Plus listed, but that’s not all, of course. The listing also says that more Huawei devices will get the update, which is completely logical considering all of the listed devices have launched last year, Huawei has quite a few newest and more powerful devices currently out in the market.
Unfortunately, we still don’t have any leaked images of EMUI 4.0, or anything of the sort. We do hope, however, that some info will leak in the coming weeks, especially considering you can expect to see this launched in November or December., so there’s plenty of time for leaks to come our way. It will be interesting to see what will Huawei do in EMUI 4.0, in other words, will they change the UI completely, or will it be just an iterative update? EMUI sports a rather interesting interface which differs from stock Android quite a bit, so it’s unrealistic to expect for Huawei to change that completely, but we’ll see.
