EMUI 12: Huawei launched a phone with this software, what is it and why?

EMUI 12

Back in June, Huawei gave us hint regarding the next version of EMUI – EMUI 12. However, the reference was quite ambitious and later was removed from its origin of place but it has surely made us scratch our heads for a second.

The first question that we had, is how could the company launch a new EMUI version when it’s about to enter the HarmonyOS world? This question remained unanswered but there’s something interesting that has just appeared.

Huawei has launched the Nova 8 in Russia and the page listing of this phone reveals that to equip with “EMUI 12” as the operating system and there’s no mention of Android whatsoever.

Let’s first look at the Huawei Nova 8

Check info below this video

Last December, Huawei unveiled Huawei Nova 8 and Nova 8 Pro devices. The standard version comes with a 6.57-inch display, 90Hz refresh rate, Kirin 985 chip, 66W charging, 64MP quad rear camera, 32MP selfie camera, EMUI 11, and display fingerprint.

For your information, Huawei Nova 8 has already completed the HarmonyOS 2 stable upgrade in China. Yet, Huawei launching this phone with EMUI 12 label seems pretty odd, a software that is not announced.Huawei Nova 8

Huawei Nova 8 Russia:

This new version is almost the same as its Chinese counterpart except it comes with the Kirin 820E processor (6-core, 3 × Cortex-A76 2.22 GHz + 3 × Cortex-A55 1.84 GH, Mali-G57) instead of a 7nm Kirin 985 chip with 5G access.

No promotion or feature details available:

However, our concentration lies on EMUI 12 and we also want to mention that there’s no reference to its features made on the official website. The phone’s listing shows to include AOD and AppGallery.

What is this?

Currently, we don’t have exact inputs on why Huawei has mentioned EMUI 12 in the official listing and what exactly this EMUI version is. We’ll surely get an answer soon and we’ll eagerly wait to see and inform you on this matter.

Previous rollout and when it was started:

Last month, Huawei began to rollout the June 2021 software update for Huawei Nova 5T. However, this new update and package content are surely surprising.

Because the latest software brings “April 2021” security patch, which is already rolled out two months ago.

Also, the first software package consists of new applications – Pental Search, Reader, Pental Maps, Member Center, and Link Now. Some of these apps install alongside the update but some require manual installation by tapping on their icons.

This rollout could be designed for the users who’ve missed the recent changes made to the system and Huawei doesn’t want the users of Huawei Nova 5T to miss it out.
