[Update: Timeline for more devices] Huawei announces EMUI 10 based on Android Q, P30 series getting beta on September 8

HarmonyOS during its developer conference, Huawei quickly followed up by showing its continued commitment to Android. The company unveiled the latest iteration of EMUI, number 10.0, based on Android Q. A beta version of it is coming to the Huawei P30 series on September 8, which further confirms what we were already expecting: Google is most likely launching the stable release of Android 10 Q at around the same date.

During its packed keynote event, Huawei didn’t have much time to explain all the little changes coming with EMUI 10.0, but did mention that it will have the system-wide dark mode Google has been working on. The company also adds multi-screen support, similar to the Note10’s Link to Windows feature. It allows you to access your phone’s display from your computer wirelessly.

With the beta release of EMUI 10.0 set for September 8, Huawei proves to be one of the few Android manufacturers to push fast updates to their devices. The fact that EMUI is one of the most heavily customized OEM versions of Android makes this feat even more impressive. The company is also preparing a Play Services competitor named “HMS Core,” which provides apps with alternate APIs. By including its own core services, Huawei might be able to easily transfer Android apps to its own OS should its access to US products be revoked again.

  • Mate 20
  • Mate 20 Pro
  • P smart 2019
