At the Huawei Developer Conference 2020 on September 10, Huawei officially released the EMUI 11 system. The EMUI 11 system has three main highlights: art for people, AOD renewed and immersed in artistic themes. It has a multi-sensory coordination of sound and vibration. It is easy for people to use and has wisdom multi-window, multi-screen collaborative keyboard and mouse sharing.
In terms of UX design, EMUI 11 not only brings many art style themes and DIY AOD, but also introduces a more comprehensive “smart multi-window” feature. It also brings new audio-visual effects to users in terms of dynamic effects and multi-sensory collaboration. As for motion design, EMUI 11 puts the “one mirror to the end” in the movie. It allows the user’s vision and interaction to be more focused, bringing more efficient operations.
The EMUI 11 fully borrows the distributed technology of Harmony OS 2.0. It can realize the interconnection of more different devices. EMUI11 is an innovative full-scenario application that can realize multi-screen interaction. The multi-screen collaboration function of EMUI 11 has been further upgraded. You can also open the multi-window content of the mobile application on the computer. For example, you can play the live video of the online class through one window, and open the memo in the other window to record the key points of the teacher. This window can also interact with friends, exchange online class content or occasionally reply to work information.
In addition, EMUI 11 supports PC tablet collaboration. Users can not only edit the documents of the tablet interface through the PC keyboard and mouse, but also mark and draw directly with the stylus. For example, in a meeting, you can drag the display document onto the tablet interface. It can be conveniently displayed and explained through the tablet. It can also be marked and modified directly on the tablet at the same time. The improvement of office efficiency is obvious.
Because of the shared distributed technology, smartphones equipped with EMUI 11 can quickly connect with Harmony OS smart home devices. It brings a convenient experience of fast network distribution, intelligent interaction and direct service. As early as EMUI10, the TEE OS security kernel obtained the CC EAL5 + security level certification, the highest security level of the global commercial OS kernel. EMUI 10.1 is the first mobile terminal operating system in China that has passed China’s CC EAL4 + certification.

When users send photos to friends through Huawei sharing, they can choose to erase the photo address, time, and equipment. It also has privacy memo. The user can encrypt a single note in the memo. So, you can see the content after passing the identity verification. So, it better protects your little secrets.
