Now, Huawei Nova 7 and Nova 7 Pro (5G) are the latest Huawei phones to get the EMUI 11 beta update.

EMUI 11 Features:

The first thing the users will like about EMUI 11 is the multi-window and split-screen functionalities. These functions have been placed at the center so that the user can get more familiar with the features instead of tucking them somewhere in the menus.

Moreover, the users will also appreciate the customizable AOD (Always-on displays). New styles and animated AOD have been added. One can also choose an image from the gallery and the system will convert it into an appropriate color palette. EMUI’s various system applications, most notably the Gallery and Notepad apps, have received some upgraded functionality. For a detailed list of features, refer the below link:
