The teaser clearly says “coming soon”, and we expect other Kirin 970-powered devices to receive the user interface shortly after. This includes Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, the regular P20, including some Honor phones such as the View 10 and Play, among others.
Back in October, Huawei India introduced EMUI 9.0 with market specific features, including local languages support, Indian calendar and Paytm integration. The first two devices that should receive the update in India are the Huawei P20 Pro and the Huawei nova 3, both running the Kirin 970 chipset.
Aside from the market-specific features, EMUI 9.0 will also bring better one-hand operations, Android Dashboard, GPU Turbo 2.0 and better touchscreen responsiveness and connectivity. There will also be HiVision – an AR platform recognizing landmarks and paintings, acting as a direct Google Lens competitor.
