Huawei EMUI 9 beta based on Android 9 Pie. Here’s how to download it on your device.

Huawei has announced EMUI 9, the latest version of its Android-based user interface, based on Android 9 Pie. While the final version will come pre-loaded on the Mate 20 when it launches on October 16, those users with select Huawei and Honor devices can download a beta version of the new software.

What’s new in EMUI 9

As expected, EMUI 9 bases many of its features from the key aspects in Android Pie. According to Android Central, the new version of  EMUI gives full screen visuals for call and alarm alerts, as well as a task-switching setup built upon Android 9.0’s gesture input. Visual improvements in EMUI 9.0 include controls and tabs being shifted to the bottom of the screen, while pre-loaded apps, and ‘Settings’, come with artistic illustrations. Besides this, the number of menus available across options made available on EMUI have been reduced to 843, down from 940.

Other features seen on EMUI 9 include the return function, that works by swiping inward from the phone’s left bezel. To open recent apps, one can swipe upwards from the bottom bezel. The same option can also send a user to the home page. So far, gesture navigation is yet to be seen on EMUI 9, though future beta versions are expected to run this feature. Across apps, Android Central claims that EMUI 9 works faster than EMUI 8.Besides faster hardware support from the recently launched Kirin 980 processor, EMUI 9 will also test out GPU Turbo 2.0, that promises a smoother and smarter gameplay experience.
