Check Huawei P20 and Mate 10 devices with EMUI 12 user interface
Last year Huawei announced EMUI 12 for older devices. The list was quite big but we became more interested after checking the inclusion of the Huawei P20 and Mate 10 series in the upgrade campaign.
Huawei P20 and Mate 10 are one of the most popular and successful devices. And even after skipping EMUI 11, Huawei chose to upgrade these two device models to the latest EMUI version – EMUI 12.
Hence, a user of these devices and our fellow reader has shared some amazing screenshots from Huawei P20 and Mate 10 series running EMUI 12 and let us know how it is the user interface (UI) in real-time.
Let’s check these changes in the user interface in detail.
As compared to the older UI, the new EMUI 12 theme has done excellent work on these devices. The on-screen icons have been redefined and retouched with a round corner and smooth look. Icons such as calculator, gallery, camera, and especially the settings have been completely changed.
Large folders cannot be taken as an exception because it’s a big feature. As you can see in the screenshot, it helps users to group all related apps and keep the screen tidy and clean.
The adventure of user interface and looks doesn’t stop here, because EMUI 12 comes with new fonts and these fonts are clearly visible and support the overall aesthetics of the theme itself.
The second biggest change that the Mate 10 and P20 series now have, includes the new Control Panel. Yes, the new control panel, gives an entirely new control in the hand of these phone users. There are different sections to manage media, networks, shortcut switches, as well as smart devices.
You also have an option to swipe left and switch to a separate notification panel, which has a space of an entire screen. While it was previously tagged along with the quick settings.
Not on these, the EMUI 12 is packed with new permission management and security features to safe keep your phone’s data. It also gives you better control over what you are sharing with the active app.
Huawei Mate 10 and P20 series launched with Google Mobile Services (GMS) and EMUI 12 doesn’t scratch or change anything with it. So, be assured that EMUI 12 is safe to install.
Huawei is yet to share EMUI 13 roadmap
EMUI 13 beta kicked off for global users and it’s quite exciting but the roadmap of eligible Huawei devices is still awaited. While there’s no official news available on this matter.
In 2021, Huawei released EMUI 12 roadmap during the Asia pacific launch event but this year, there are no such plans revealed. Instead of the roadmap, Huawei opened the EMUI 13 beta for all Huawei P50, P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 foldable phones.
Unfortunately, the program is open for the Asia region but more users want to join the beta activity. Especially the European models are waiting for term to dive into the testing pool.
Despite the delay, we hope that the oldest set of devices may also get a slot into this EMUI 13 release program.
In the meantime, if you have a flagship phone, tune into the Beta app. From here open the “Me” section and then search for a new EMUI 13 beta project.
You need to sign up for the beta application and wait for the submission. Once submitted, you will be notified to download the OTA update package.
If the activity is not available on your phone, don’t worry, you will see the project after the beta opens in your country. Yet, we also suggest you keep an eye on the Beta application.
EMUI 13 Features:
EMUI 13 focuses on reinventing EMUI 12, this includes better security and privacy. This new software can review all of the data safety measures thanks to the new privacy center.
It has new options to allow or revoke permission, check the timeline for all of the user permission, and so on. You can also set new image privacy to hide the image meta information.
EMUI 13 also plays well around the user interface and there are many improvements made to features such as large folders and service widgets.

This is a big changelog for the Huawei Mate 50 Pro and the company is sending this to improve the phone’s performance in various scenarios. Also, if you have a Mate 50 Pro device, we suggest you get this version right away as soon as it appears.
The Mate 50 Pro is the first phone among all of the Huawei smartphones to get EMUI 13 but actually, it comes pre-installed. Since its launch, old phone users are waiting for a new major upgrade.
Recently, Huawei opened the beta program for a few flagships – P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Mate Xs 2 foldable phone. You should know that the latest EMUI 13 beta activity has limited slots and it’s available only for a region.
