HUAWEI’S NEW “EMOTION UI 5.0” WITH MAJOR REDESIGN – LAUNCH EXPECTED THIS FALL

HUAWEI’S NEW “EMOTION UI 5.0” WITH MAJOR REDESIGN – LAUNCH EXPECTED THIS FALL

Huawei has been the master inventor in the high technology products over the years. With its unique approach towards Android, Huawei has developed its own Emotion ROM, which has recently gained great popularity and is expected to be re-launched, as EMUI 5.0, after a major upgrade, sometime during fall 2016.  According to industry sources, Huawei has been working on a new major upgrade to the OS – version 5.0, which will bring an entirely new, smartly simplified UI, one closely resembling Stock Android. The current EMUI 4.1 used in the Huawei P9 smartphones is also very advanced, but the newly developed EMUI 5.0 will offer even simpler menu structure and navigation scheme.  Huawei’s Head of Mobiles Division – Li Changzhu stated that; the new EMUI has a new cleaner and minimalist look on the user-interface, while not affecting the original firmware module. This new-found push towards simplicity in the interface is done to resonate better with Western customers. However, this will surely not come at the expense of functionality or options to be customized, which play an important role in EMUI.  Emotion UI 5.0 launch will probably coincide with IFA 2016 in Berlin and in all likelihood, a new Huawei Mate 9 device will be unveiled as a superior smart device in technology and user experience. According to GSM Info; “The EMUI 5.0 will offer an interface that resembles vanilla Android, with a lot more customizable options. The changes are geared towards making EMUI more palatable to a Western audience. With Huawei’s strong presence in Europe and increasing foothold in the U.S. market, dialing the interface back will go a long way toward making its devices more appealing. The redesign of EMUI 5.0 is being led by chief UX designer – Abigail Brody, who was formerly the creative director for iOS at...

The next Android OS is called Android 6.0 Marshmallow [Official]

We are just a month away from Google showing off its new Android 6.0 operating system code named Marshmallow.  They will do so, with the launch of the two new Nexus devices. One is made by LG (Nexus 5 2015) and its brother will be bigger like the Nexus 6 but built by Huawei. Google had kept a lot of people guessing what their next Android OS will be named, when early this year, Android M as introduced. If the preview builds are to be considered. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings with it a number of changes, visual and internal. The first thing you will notice when you turn on an Android 6.0 running device is the new boot animation, next you can see that the app launcher  has changed, it now comes with a search option which could turn out to be very handy, if you have many app screens. Home screen rotation is finally here (though some app launchers have done this job for us in the past). Also, Quick settings tab can now be arranged. Now talking about internal changes, Android 6.0 will let users give the power to choose which permission you want which app to have. So, if you do not allow an app to use your mic, it wont be allowed to use it. Finger print scanning is also built in the OS’s architecture, which means improved finger print scanning in supported devices. Lastly there is a cool new function which lets you decide what notifications to show on the status bar. For example if you always have your bluetooth on, and do not want the icon to take the space then simply remove it.  This means a much cleaner looking status bar. Now it is just a matter of waiting until Google shows off the final build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the world in...

Their is no official word on what exactly will Android “M” be called, could be Muffin or like they did with KitKat, maybe it could be Mars, who knows.
