The Huawei P50 Pro comes with pre-installed EMUI 12 software. On the other hand, the Chinese version of the P50 Pro comes with a pre-loaded HarmonyOS 2 operating system. EMUI shares the same set of features, you won’t feel the difference between these two siblings.
Huawei P50 Pro:
Huawei P50 Pro features a 6.6-inch display with an OLED panel, up to 120Hz refresh rate, 1440 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, 300Hz touch sampling rate, and 2700 x 1228 pixels resolution.

Are you excited about Huawei EMUI 13?
The Huawei EMUI 12 user interface is very similar to HarmonyOS 2. Does it mean that the upcoming EMUI 13 will be an HarmonyOS 3 copy? Yes, probably because EMUI has already carried out so many features in version 12.
After having confirmation about EMUI 13 for the global Huawei smartphone market, it now has created hassle and vessel in the consumer’s mind about what’s new Huawei serving to the users after HarmonyOS 3.
Will EMUI 13 bring similar features to the HarmonyOS 3 or it’s going to plan something more innovative for Huawei users? The users are curious and excited to know about what happened next with Huawei EMUI 13.
Are you excited about the Huawei EMUI 13 in terms of software features? The expectations are high for EMUI 13 to admit with HarmonyOS 3 similar features to some extent.
Those who are not aware of the HarmonyOS 3 feature can check below:
- Service widgets, change freely
- Smart Folders
- Home Screen space
- Celia’s suggestion, Extraordinary
Smart life in all scenarios:
- The super device, more experience
- Broadcast control center, the broadcast is more convenient
Performance power consumption
- Superframe game engine
Privacy & Security
- Privacy Center
- Security Center
- Visual aid
- Hearing Aid
let’s see over these how many features thus EMUI 13 adopts from the HarmonyOS 3. It is also true, though, that since both EMUI and HarmonyOS are under Huawei’s ownership, they are identical to one another.
Meanwhile, there are some expected features that EMUI should bring for the users, you can check them:
Dark mode scheduling feature:
A system-level theme called “dark mode” enables a dark color scheme throughout the entire user interface. By using this feature, you can operate the relevant gadget more comfortably while working in low light.
The feature has undergone numerous modifications since it was introduced in EMUI 10 and is currently much more than just a black user interface. However, scheduling for dark mode is a significant adjustment that is needed for this feature.
New large folders sizes:
Large folders in EMUI 12 currently enable a 3 x 3 (row and column) layout but Huawei included more layout choices in HarmonyOS 3.0 that we hope to see in EMUI 13. As EMUI 13 could adopt this new functionality as well.
A brand-new idea called Large Folder lets you control the home screen apps on your phone. When we already have app folders, why do we need large folders? A Large folder is not a typical folder characteristic, though.
App snippet feature:
Huawei HarmonyOS 3 app snippet feature makes it easy to navigate through an app’s key features. When using app snippets, you must swipe up on the app icon. The program will then respond with a popup window and a number of choices.
Each app will offer a variety of relevant possibilities. The camera app, for instance, will display photo, video, portrait, and selfie options.
Well, What’s your expected feature with EMUI 13 to bring, just share your thought without:
