Features and Changes:
MAGAZINE STYLE UI:
The new Magazine Style introduced in EMUI 10 organizes the screen similar to a Magazine including the Headline area, White space, Grid system, and Highlights of the story. And allows the layout to create a balance between interactive and informative content.
The effect of this whole style adaptation can be seen on the Settings menu, Contacts, Notes, Notification panel and other parts of the UI.
The EMUI 10 now added a two-level color scheme for the top (information) part and the bottom (interactive) part of the display. The new color style will be applied to the top part and is called the ‘Morandi Color System’ derived from the famous Italian painter Giorgio Morandi.
There are a total of 6 Morandi colors integrated into the contact details, NotePad, Gallery and other parts of the Interface. According to Huawei, the addition of these new colors makes the overall experience more elegant, intriguing and interactive.
GOLDEN RATIO ICONS:
To make the interface more elegant, the Icons design has received a golden ratio makeover with more rounder shape and sharp appearance.
In the previous version of EMUI, there was only white color available for Always-on Display (AOD) but with EMUI 10 now it added color schemes and new widgets options.
