EMUI 12 = HarmonyOS 2 = Android 11?
Preliminary information suggests that Huawei is still using Android 11 as a foundation and that the system, therefore, corresponds to HarmonyOS 2. EMUI 12 brings a new look to the interface, similar to Huawei’s “own” operating system. With a new control panel including quick access to devices from the manufacturer’s ecosystem.
Other changes highlighted by Huawei – both in EMUI 12 and in Harmony OS 2 – are the minimalist interface with a strong influence of new morphism. In addition, there are more natural animations that are supposed to imitate the appearance of the user and the new font HarmonyOS Sans, with the possibility of adjusting the size and thickness.
And don’t forget: EMUI 12 Update plan brings even better integration with Huawei’s other devices. The MatePad button in the control panel, for example, allows you to make calls or see photos and messages from your phon e on the tablet screen. The MateBook button, on the other hand, promises to make file sharing easier, while the Vision and headset buttons allow content to be played on connected screens and headsets.
According to Huawei, the update to EMUI 12 will be rolled out to the announced devices in the first half of 2022.
