Huawei‘s EMUI 11 was officially unveiled at the company’s Developer Conference 2020. Wang Chenglu, President, Software Department, Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG), showcased all the key features of the new operating system that includes the new human factors-based user experience (UX) design, new privacy as well as security features and improved all-scenario experiences.
The new artistic design offers a breath of fresh air, while the transitions and UI interactions have been optimised for human factors to improve the user experience.
There are some cool features included in Huawei’s upcoming EMUI 11 OS including new long-take transition animations, inspired by their namesake technique in the field of cinematography, help users focus better on the task at hand. Huawei’s human factors research results indicate that, compared to regular transitions, long-take transitions effectively shorten user eye movement and lessen fatigue while improving recognition efficiency.
All-scenario features powered by Huawei’s distributed technology, such as MeeTime and Multi-Screen Collaboration, have already become signature features of EMUI. This innovative technology enables devices to virtualise and share their software capabilities with each other. Users are no longer bound by hardware limitations and are free to customise their experience based on their individual needs and preferences.
EMUI 11 also comes with new privacy features. When transferring images, users can easily purge the file of all sensitive personal data such as location, time and device details before it is sent. Encrypted memos also keep personal notes personal by securing the content with a PIN or biometric lock.
