EMUI 10 Features
Huawei unveiled EMUI 10 at its annual developer conference in China last year. The new EMUI custom skin is based on Android 10, so you will get all the latest peaks of Android 10. Here we have listed all the top features of Huawei’s EMUI 10:
Dark Mode: Dark mode does not mean complete black background and white texts. After repeated human-centric lab tests, the most suitable color contrast and gradation were selected to deliver a comfortable and immersive reading experience in dark environments.
Better performance: EMUI 10 will be more responsive thanks to improved EROFS file system and GPU Turbo 3.0, promising faster interactions and less latency when switching through apps.
Magazine Design: Incorporates a magazine-style layout, for a more comfortable and authentic reading experience.
Morandi Color: Understated gray tones make for a gentler and more comfortable display.
