Petal Clip: Huawei’s video editing app with lots of new features



Huawei Petal Clip

With the launch of the Huawei P50 series, the company also unveiled a number of new software services including the latest video editing app – Petal Clip. This app allows you to edit and create videos right on your Huawei smartphone.

According to our inspection, the app is specially designed for HarmonyOS devices but It worked similarly on EMUI 11 devices. However, we cannot promise or claim that it’ll work well on your EMUI smartphone.

The Petal Clip app provides a wide range of video editing features, as well as massive special effects, stickers, sound effects, fonts, and other materials for video creation and editing enthusiasts, inspiring infinite creativity.

According to Huawei, the Petal Clip app can easily create fun and interesting videos on your phone.

Video Editor:

One thing to say, Petal Clip has one of the most powerful video editors. The video editor includes a lot of options with different kinds of preset settings.

In short terms: The Editor has –

  1. Preview window
  2. Timeline
  3. Video length
  4. Undo/redo – Maximize
  5. Timestamp
  6. Music timeline – Add new track/remove/replace
  7. Various Editing options (Many)

Once edited, you can export the video in the range from 720P (HD) up to 4K. There’s also an option to select up to frame per second value. Furthermore, there’s also an option to export in Efficient video format to save video weight.


As mentioned above, the app has a huge library of pre-built projects that you can use on the go. You can choose the app projects based on their shown information including time duration, layers, and total downloads by the users.

Each template has a different style of transition, text effects as well as filters that you can choose according to your preference and may save a lot of time instead of creating a project from scratch.

Once selected, tap on “Start” and start importing. The rest of the interface works the same as the new project. You can edit any track as you like.


The app interface solely supports the Chinese language and if you don’t know about the language, then we don’t recommend you to dig into the Tutorial section.
