EMUI 11 Features:

EMUI 10 bought several new features and performance improvements to the device. Magazine Style UI layout, Morandi Colors system, Dark Mode, Improve security, New Animations, and more are the highlights of EMUI 10. Considering the EMUI 11, this will be the most advanced update for the EMUI skin. Huawei will be boosting its App ecosystem to take on the Google Play Store and the veto imposed by the United States government.

Huawei Mobile Services (HMS):

Huawei is working a lot on its app ecosystem i.e. the Huawei Mobile Services. This is because of the ban on Huawei for using Google Mobile Services on its upcoming Huawei and Honor devices. Moreover, we could see some new HMS apps and services right from EMUI 10, but EMUI 11 will be a major platform.

Better UI Design:

EMUI 10 UI design is based on the Magazine layout which looks flat. A bit of pop up design or even a 3D layout is what expected from the EMUI 11.

  • New Apps Icons
  • New Colors
  • Improved GPU Turbo
  • Improved One-handed mode
  • Improved Gesture
  • Dark Mode enhancement
  • File-Sharing Mode
  • Security Improvements
  • Build-in Screen recording

Since there is plenty of time for the EMUI 11 announcement, we could see more features being included from Huawei. Stay tuned as we’ll update the post once anything about EMUI 11 comes officially.
