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.

Home screen:

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:

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.

Control Panel:

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.
