Huawei has revealed that they have made around 139 million units sold globally in 2016 and that gave them enough motivation to kick start the year 2017 with the unveiling of the Honor 6X. Now, they’ve got a big news for all its users about the software update of the Huawei devices. As you know, Huawei’s phones run on their own home-brewed chipsets and their own custom EMUI OS. The users have been waiting for the Nougat update all this long and Huawei has finally made it official with rolling out the EMUI 5.1 for selected devices.
As per now, the new phone from the company that was just launched, the Honor 8 Lite will be running on the EMUI 5.1 on out of the box. The phones namely, the Honor 8, Honor 6X, Honor 5C, and Huawei P9 will be receiving the update in the May of 2017. Their other devices will not be having any luck, at least for now, until any developer ports the ROM to the devices.
The EMUI 5.1 is based on Android Nougat and Huawei claims that it has smooth, flawless, and simplified UI for instant data transferring and faster file sharing capacities. And, with this update, there are a lot of features and optimizations added. They also claim to have added some high privacy and security features on this one.
Talking about the other features of the EMUI 5.1, it has better memory management which provides more memory to the apps that you mostly use and killing the apps that run in the background which you don’t use frequently, better-enhanced graphics makes it good for gamers and multitaskers, and a new private space which can be accessed through your fingerprint.
There’s an added option for Huawei users to easily share data through their devices and App Twin (Clone Apps) function to create duplicate apps for your social media accounts. Other than these, all the older features of the EMUI stay as they are and also continues to support all the 14 Indian languages Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Kannada, Gujarati, Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Assamese, Nepali, Malayalam, Oriya, Urdu, and Maithili.
