EMUI 10 with official Android Q: PC and car friend (with HiCar), in beta since September 3rd (updated)

After the HarmonyOS bombing, Huawei continues with prominent announcements, unveiling the EMUI 10 based on Android 10 Q, or the next iteration of its custom interface for Android, which will soon be available on Huawei and Honor branded smartphones.
News 60% more performance for GPU Turbo, 70% improvement for Turbo Link, and over 20% for EROFS (Extendable Read-Only File System).
But beyond the inevitable percentages that accompany each new release, what will be new and tangible for users? First of all we will have the dark theme, optimized in every single detail of the UI.
From the background to the text of the icons, contrast and color scale have been optimized to the best, to provide a more comfortable and immersive reading experience.
And all this without neglecting the white.
By default the interface will be clear, with a magazine style.
So much white, so many images, clearly legible fonts, text paginated properly, for a general effect that makes the content stand out.
EMUI 10 also brings the screen of your smartphone to a PC in real-time.
Once connected (wireless) you can control the phone from the PC, with mouse and keyboard, including drag and drop support.
And when you're driving, HiCar will arrive, or the alternative to Android Auto.
Supported by over 30 manufacturers on 120 current models, HiCar does what you would expect: navigation, music, messaging and phone calls, all available on the (touch) screen of your vehicle.
Furthermore (if supported) you can also check the status of the car on the smartphone screen, activate the air conditioning and share the journey with whomever you want.
Finally, devices with EMUI 10 will easily communicate with each other.
We talk about video calls in full HD between Huawei devices, including smart screens or home speakers, to talk easily with the whole family.
A very "Chinese" prospect at the moment, but after all, the company's developer conference is taking place in China.
And always on the subject of interoperability, EMUI 10 should be able to communicate more easily even with other types of devices, including smart TVs, smartwatches, drones, and more.
Even in this case, however, it remains to understand what our market will reserve us.
Release Date EMUI 10 will debut on the Mate 30 family, which will be announced presumably between September and October.
The Huawei P30 series will instead receive the EMUI 10 in beta on September 8th.
Later, starting from the same month, the beta will be extended to Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X and Mate20 RS Porsche Design.
At the same time, the Magic UI 3.0, always based on Android 10, will arrive in China on the various Honor 20, 20 Pro, View 20 and Magic 2.

Press release Huawei launches EMUI10 to enable the "smart life" in all scenarios Milan, 12 August 2019_ During the HDC, held between 9 and 11 August in Dongguan, China, Huawei officially released EMUI10, the new interface from numerous new features.
Dr.
Wang Chenglu, President of the Software Engineering Department of Huawei Consumer Business Group, stated that EMUI10 is a pioneering system in the application of multi-platform technologies, designed to offer a unique user experience in every circumstance of use.
The development of EMUI10 will make it possible to perform advanced operations for each of the device applications such as, for example, specific features for audio and video calls on each platform and in each condition of use, business functions on each device and optimization of smart devices -Vehicle.
At the same time, the ability to manage a single development process for each application, which will be compatible with all devices, will reduce costs, improve efficiency and provide users with a smart experience in all scenarios.
EMUI has made it possible to interconnect devices, as well as between devices and applications, and will further improve the user experience on each platform and in all conditions of use.
At the same time, the EMUI development team supports the cooperative and open attitude promoted by Huawei and hopes that more and more partners and developers will join the project to create innovative experiences in all scenarios.
At the end of the launch event, Dr.
Wang announced that an EMUI10 Beta version will be released starting September 8 on Huawei P30 series devices and on other models and that the new realese will be available on the next generation of products in the series Mate.
Chairman of the software engineering department, Huawei Consumer Business Group Over 500 million active daily users (DAUs) for EMUI and the new "dark" mode added to EMUI10.
Today Huawei EMUI, which supports 77 languages, has over 500 million active users every day, distributed in 216 countries.
Since 2012, the year of birth of EMUI1.0, many technological advances have been made in the system: Huawei has dedicated itself with constant effort to provide updates and an increasingly premium experience for its users.
Statistics show that the EMUI8.0 and EMUI 9.0 user update rates have reached 79% and 84% of total users respectively and that the number of those who will upgrade their devices to EMUI10 should reach 150 million.
For the past 7 years, Huawei has therefore invested heavily in EMUI research and development to continuously improve system performance.
GPU Turbo technology has improved graphics processing efficiency by 60%, while Link Turbo network aggregation technology allows smartphones to simultaneously access multiple networks – such as 4G and WiFi – for a network speed of 70% more faster than using only 4G.
Among the other innovations: the super EROFS file system improves the random reading of Android by 20% while Ark Compiler makes third-party applications more fluid by 60%.
EMUI10 offers three other important updates: the UX design, a definitive experience for all usage scenarios and a new standard of regular operation.
EMUI10 also offers the possibility of using a "dark" mode to offer greater visual comfort.
Recent research has revealed that the brightness and saturation of a color are perceived differently depending on a light or dark background.
The dark mode optimizes both the color contrast between dark texts and backgrounds and the color of the texts and system icons, and the end result guarantees visual coherence, comfort and readability.
Distributed technology transforms experiences between devices and combines the capabilities of multiple devices on a screen.
EMUI10 adopts revolutionary cross-platform distributed technology to support HD video calls across multiple devices.
Users can make audio and video calls when and where they are.
If there is an incoming call, users can choose to answer using a smart speaker.
Or if it is a video call, they can reply via a TV, a device mounted on the vehicle or even send a video feed in real time from a drone so that even friends and relatives can enjoy the beautiful scenery.
At work, a smartphone and a computer can share screens so that data can be exchanged easily by dragging and dropping.
Such a fluid experience is only made possible thanks to the revolutionary distributed technology.
To implement distributed technology, you must first virtualize the hardware capabilities of each device.
In other words, what a device is capable of, for example in terms of display, camera, microphone or speaker, is not based on the characteristics of a particular device but, rather, on a shared pool of resources.
In this way, each device can take advantage of the necessary hardware functions or capabilities by deriving them from the resource pool or by sharing these functions with other devices.
Therefore, for users and applications, different devices can be combined into one.
Huawei, which always pays great attention to security, as well as improving the product experience, has also created a distributed security system that can be used on every platform and for all usage scenarios.
Using internal hardware and software, it strengthened the device defense system and to create an even more robust security system, it used a chip system architecture and a system kernel.
Only authenticated devices can be connected to other user devices and, moreover, the communication between devices is end-to-end encrypted to guarantee the absolute security of data transmission.
One-time development for multi-platform distribution, for an even more consistent user experience in all scenarios Nowadays the most different devices have been equipped with smart features, from smartphones to smart TVs, and with the spread of application ecosystems , the number of devices and applications that each user uses daily is rapidly increasing.
To ensure a consistent user experience on any device and to guarantee access to services in any situation, developers have to face great challenges in adapting multi-device applications, in multi-language learning and in the convergence of data between devices.
In an increasingly interconnected future, developers must create systems that can respond to the changes taking place.
As stated during the launch event, EMUI provides a distributed UI programming framework and virtualizes hardware capabilities.
In this way, developers can create apps for multiple devices without having to make adaptations for the same program.
EMUI shows its ability to contribute to driving the sector and facilitate the development of ecosystems.
In recent years the number of Huawei smartphones has increased significantly.
Huawei has distributed over 100 million units in just five months this year and, thanks to EMUI, will be able to provide more and more cross-platform applications for synergistic cross-device experiences for users.
Huawei has always worked with developers and partners in the sector to obtain advantageous results and jointly create an innovative experience in all scenarios, for this reason it has decided to make its knowledge, tools and platforms such as Ark Compiler and Huawei DevEco Studio available to developers .
The P30 series will be the first to move to the EMUI10 Beta version that will soon be available on other devices.
The Huawei P30 series will be the first to switch to the EMUI10 Beta version starting September 8th; later the new interface will be available for the Mate 20 series.
During the launch event, Dr.
Wang Chenglu also announced that EMUI10 will be launched for the first time in the next generation of the Mate series.
More information on EMUI10, the models that will mount the new interface and the beta testing phase will be available on Huawei's official channels.
