First EMUI 11 teasers point towards greater connectivity and usability for Huawei's next OS
There has been plenty of speculation about EMUI 11 in recent months, primarily because of Huawei's ongoing US trade sanctions. While it remains unclear in what form EMUI 11 will arrive, the company has confirmed that it will debut its next OS at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 (HDC 2020), which will run between September 10-12. Now, the company has begun teasing EMUI 11 on Weibo.
Huawei has published two teasers so far that imply EMUI 11 will focus on improved connectivity and usability. We suspect that this means that Huawei has included revised animations and greater interoperability with other systems like HarmonyOS. However, EMUI 11 and HarmonyOS will remain two OSes, contrary to previous claims.
It remains to be seen how Huawei will roll out EMUI 11 though, seeing as it has some devices with Google apps pre-installed and others without. The company stated that a recent intensification of US sanctions would not affect its ability to deliver software updates to older handsets like the Mate 20 and P30 series though, but we shall we see as of September 10. HDC 2020 will also be used to showcase "more exciting technologies", so we would not rule out Huawei unveiling some hardware at its conference later this month, too.
