EMUI Download, Features, Supported Devices

EMUI 11 Features

Of course it is too early to discuss about the features of EMUI 11 when the Android 11 itself is in Developer Preview! But still there are some confirmed features that have been integrated to this latest update.

Gesture Navigation on EMUI 11

Well, this is neither specific to EMUI nor a new thing. Android 10 natively introduced the iOS like navigation gesture which has also been found in the Xiaomi’s MIUI 12.

But unlike other implementations, EMUI has a sensitivity setting for the side gestrues that can be set to prevent false touches. This sensitivity is primarily implemented to prevent the false touch on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro which has a waterfall screen and the P40 Pro which has a curved screen.

In Android 10 it is called as Navigation gestures, in MIUI 12 it is Full Screen Gestures, similarly, Huawei may call it something on the EMUI, but ultimately it’s just the same thing.

Below are some of the screenshots from EMUI 11 which has gesture settings control:

System Wide Dark Theme

This is also a native Android 10 feature which is brought to the EMUI 11.

Other Features

As of now, there is nothing much has been revealed It is still in development and Huawei is taking opinions from users to finalize the features.
