The discussion on EMUI 12 beta is now widespread among consumers. Meanwhile, Huawei has successfully begun EMUI 12 beta activity on smartphones including the Mate 40 Pro, Mate 30, and P40 series. However, more models soon joined the beta testing pool and confirmed Huawei’s plan for a fast upgrade.

EMUI 12 comes with a bunch of new features but the main attraction of this new EMUI version comes has something different. Yes! We’re talking about the user interface, which now has a HarmonyOS vibe into its skin.

In specific words, the user interface is identical to what Huawei has to offer in the HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system. Although, the core features such as super device, app snippets as well as service widgets are an integral part of the HarmonyOS ecosystem and have not been included in EMUI 12 beta.

Still, the UI, UX, and feel are very relevant to HarmonyOS but there is fact that Huawei EMUI 12 global users are still in favor to retain access to Android apps. On the other side, Huawei’s global developer’s community, which uses Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), has a big appearance and is continuously growing.

Therefore, the existing users may require proper guidance to shift their apps on the HarmonyOS platform. Since HarmonyOS operating system has not been introduced for the global device, the Chinese tech maker has to stick with Android as a base or core.

Both together?

Possibly, In simple words, Huawei initially launched HarmonyOS with Android app support by adding Android open source libraries and a framework that allows you to run Android apps natively. Hereafter, Huawei phones with HarmonyOS support Android apps alongside the native HarmonyOS format.

Since HarmonyOS has announced itself as an open source software and currently working on the route as Android, Huawei can use a software architecture consisting of Part Android and Part HarmonyOS architecture on EMUI 12. Yet, most of the software and benchmark platform currently identifies EMUI 12 as Android 10 but we could expect Huawei to move on Android 11 if possible. Otherwise, the company may remain to Android 10, since it has GMS licenses for old Huawei models.

We aren’t sure of what Huawei has planned to do with EMUI 12 base but you can check the article linked below for more information on this matter.

Most of Deng Li's smartphones are from the Huawei ecosystem and his first Huawei phone was Ascend Mate 2 (4G). As a tech enthusiast, he keeps exploring new technologies and inspects them closely. Apart from the technology world, he takes care of his garden.

Unfortunately, the program is open for the Asia region but more users want to join the beta activity. Especially the European models are waiting for term to dive into the testing pool.

Despite the delay, we hope that the oldest set of devices may also get a slot into this EMUI 13 release program.

You need to sign up for the beta application and wait for the submission. Once submitted, you will be notified to download the OTA update package.

If the activity is not available on your phone, don’t worry, you will see the project after the beta opens in your country. Yet, we also suggest you keep an eye on the Beta application.
