Amidst everything that happened in last month or so, Huawei software engineers seem to be working overtime. According to a new report, it looks like the company is gearing up for the launch of EMUI 10. For people who may not be aware, EMUI 10 is the next major update that will power Huawei smartphones. Similar to past major version numbers, EMUI 10 is likely to be based on the next major Android release, Android Q. Talking about the exact date, it looks like Huawei is planning to release EMUI 10 on August 9, 2019.
A report by Chinese website MyDrivers revealed that the Chinese electronics giant will launch EMUI 10 next month. The launch is scheduled to conclude with the Huawei Developers Conference at Songshan Lake in China. The report also revealed that Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei Consumer Business Software will be at the conference. We are not sure about the feature that Huawei is planning to launch with EMUI 10. However, we won’t be surprised if the company manages to improve on the current technologies while introducing more to increase the performance of EMUI 10. Most of these technologies are likely to be different and addition from whatever Android Q will introduce.
