EMUI 11 Features

Huawei still doesn’t give a single hint about the features of its upcoming EMUI 11 OS. However, we managed to get our hands-on to the list of expected features and improvements that we should see with the upcoming Android skin from Huawei. Koko, a moderator on Huawei’s Consumer forum shared this list.

  • Improved GPU Turbo – probably and updated version or further performance updates
  • Improved One-handed mode – better operation even with one-hand navigation/use
  • Improved Gestures – gesture controls have been very useful between EMUI 10 and 10.1, further enhancements should bring more functionality and ease of use for most users.
  • Improved Dark Mode – dark mode currently has a limited feature set. Can only be switched On and Off with app compatibility. An ALL APPS and SETTINGS dark mode would make it really interesting
  • Easy File-Sharing – Huawe’s ONE HOP, Huawei share and multi-screen collaboration are great additions since EMUI 10. File Sharing to more Huawei devices and even none-Huawei devices should make for a great update.
  • Improved Security – everybody wants a secure device. Huawei is making sure this is further improved and that we users get top security when using our Huawei devices.
  • An improved airplane mode – the system/phone will check whether Bluetooth is in use and will not turn the radio off when switching to airplane mode
