New UI:

EMUI 9.1 comes with a new micro-realistic UI element that runs and supported by the entire UX design that results in a faster, simpler and smoother user interface.

EMUI 9.1′ home screen layout allows users to put 4 app shortcuts in a row and increased the distance between icons to reduce the chances for accidental launches of other apps. Although this layout change doesn’t affect flat screen phones but it does in flagship phones with a curved screen and larger touch space.

In EMUI 9.0, third-party apps are shaped with round icons and systems app with a rectangular shape, which looks bizarre.

The EMUI 9.1 has brought equality to all of these Icon presentations and now whether it’s a system app or a third-party installation, all of the app icons are shaped as a round-edged rectangle and has a more flat design. Furthermore, screen transitions are now much smoother than before.

New technologies to improve performance:

ARK Compiler:

According to Huawei, Ark compiler can improve Android system performance by 24%, response speed by 44%, and the smoothness of the third-party application up to 60%.

EROFS Files System:

The EROFS file system can increase the random read speed by 20%. When it comes to reading files types such as documents, music or videos, the higher reading speed the higher the response rate. Especially while launching a large app including a game, the startup speed will be faster and takes less time.

New features

Smart dual card switching:

Huawei also has its own big ground in its network equipment field that encouraged it to add “Dual Card Smart Switching“, with this feature activated, the phone actually switches the to secondary card, when the first card didn’t have enough good network, and during the call it doesn’t affect the quality or internet access of the phone. Which could be a very useful feature for people who often travel across different places.

Note: This feature may not be available outside China but introduced alongside EMUI 9.1.
