The company did not disclose which old models will get the EMUI 9.1 update, but it is interesting that the official forum of Huawei Club is recruiting new versions of the EMUI OS, but didn’t mention the specific version, which is most probably EMUI 9.1.
This new version of the internal test recruits the following devices:
Note: Each model recruits 500 people with LOG log, without LOG log 1500 people. This test is currently running in China but it will be available to other users worldwide soon.
The list doesn’t include the Huawei Mate 20 series, but there is a big chance that the Mate 20 series will get the EMUI 9.1 update very soon.
According to the official introduction, EMUI 9.1 has been improved in three aspects: aesthetics, performance, and smart experience. It claims to have deep optimization at the DNA level and lasting fluency beyond imagination.
In terms of aesthetics, wallpapers, themes, and icons are further improved, more natural and dynamic, especially the icons, using a micro-real style, refining the design elements in the daily image, and also more flat, while the number of default horizontal icons is reduced from 5 to 4, the visual effect is better, and the chance of accidental touch is greatly reduced.
In terms of performance, the new EROFS file system, also known as “Extendable Read-Only File System”, claims that the random read speed is 20% higher than the EXT4 file system, up to 63.3MB/ s, to ensure that the system is more fluid, but also saves space.
At the same time, the new system also supports GPU Turbo 3.0, which is the third-generation graphics acceleration technology. It has added 19 international games with higher frame rate and lower power consumption.
In terms of smart experience, more details and experience upgrades include a touch, a collision, a car key, and an AR measurement.
Remember: Because the update is still in the internal testing stage, if you are not in the above list – do not have to worry, just wait for the official version to push.
