EMUI 9.1 is latest operating system for HUAWEI smartphones. It will not just power future HUAWEI smartphones, it will be offered as an upgrade for existing devices!
Despite its name, EMUI 9.1 is a major upgrade. Here is our guide on the SEVEN new features that EMUI 9.1 will introduce.
We will also share with you what new features will be available in which model, and when and how to get EMUI 9.1!
EMUI 9.1 Feature #1 : New EROFS File System
Availability : All upgraded models, except HUAWEI Y9 (2018) and HUAWEI nova 3e.
EMUI 9.1 introduces a new EROFS (Extendable Read-Only File System) file system, to replace the F2FS (Flash-Friendly File System).
It promises to deliver better random read performance, and more storage space, through better file compression. In addition, its read-only design offers better protection for system files.
EMUI 9.1 Feature #2 : GPU Turbo 3.0
Availability : All upgraded models
This new version of GPU Turbo now supports 25 of the most popular mobile games – up from just 6 games previously.
GPU Turbo 3.0 will also reduce power consumption by up to 10%, while optimising system performance for a better gaming performance.
EMUI 9.1 Feature #3 : HUAWEI AR Measure
EMUI 9.1 adds a new AR Measure app, which lets you accurately measure length, total area and volume using your HUAWEI smartphone’s ToF camera.
It also uses the built-in Face Recognition technology to measure the height of a person, by scanning him/her from head to toe!
EMUI 9.1 Feature #4 : HUAWEI OneTap Share
Availability : Only HUAWEI Mate and P series
HUAWEI OneTap Share is an improved version of the HUAWEI Share app.
It lets you easily copy and paste between devices. You can also send photos, videos and documents from your HUAWEI smartphone to your computer with a simple tap.
And it is fast – it takes only 35 seconds to send 1GB of data wirelessly to a different device or computer!
On top of that, it works as a quick game recording app. Just shake and touch your HUAWEI smartphone to your computer while you’re playing a game, and it will automatically record a 60-second video!
EMUI 9.1 Feature #5 : Improved HUAWEI Vlog
The HUAWEI Vlog app has been improved with new features and effects, and will make it easier for you to edit your videos and share them with one tap.
Its Highlight feature will automatically edit your videos with dramatic filters, with the option to apply special speed effects and background music.
EMUI 9.1 Feature #6 : Video Ringtone
Availability : All upgraded models
You will now be able to use a video clip for your ringtone. This will give you both animation and new sound effects for your incoming calls!
