Huawei rolls out EMUI 8.0; coming soon to Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 Lite
Huawei has announced the rollout of the upgraded version of its UI – EMUI. The latest version EMUI 8.0 runs on the Android 8.0 Oreo platform and is aided by AI-powered Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition, Smart Tips, and AI Accelerated Translator.
“The upgraded EMUI 8.0 is avant-garde technological software which is efficient, secure and above all, user friendly. Eradicating lag, they can witness a faster and smarter phone experience, powered by advanced AI technological features. The update significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function through its smart applications like navigation dock and smart screen, and enables the user to reach 90% of the core functions in just a single-click. We have developed the EMUI 8.0 for those who live and work on-the-go,” said a Huawei R&D spokesperson.
Awkwardly, EMUI 8.0 is a successor to EMUI 5.1. The company made a jump in the version number to synchronize it with Android version numbers – Android 8.0 being the latest – for easier understanding going forward.
The recently launched Honor View 10 comes with EMUI 8.0 out of the box, but it will be rolled out ‘in the near future’ to other Honor devices like the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 Lite. Honor 9 Lite, which is launching soon in India, will also come with EMUI 8.0 out of the box.
