Huawei has recently been pretty busy switching its Chinese smartphones to its HarmonyOS, though its international models still run on EMUI. And it appears they will continue to do so far a while as the company just announced the list of devices getting EMUI 12 starting in H1 2022.

Huawei reveals list of smartphones to receive the latest EMUI 12 update

The latest Huawei Mate and P series should expect a beta version of the software in the coming months.


Much like HarmonyOS 2.0, EMUI 12 has a big focus on the integration of the Huawei ecosystem with easy file sharing and remote control of various Huawei devices. New animations and design await as well with the biggest change to the UI probably being the notification shade. It’s now separated into two – swiping down from the left side of the status bar opens up the notification panel while doing the same on the right would summon the quick toggles, brightness slider and media controls. Just like Xiaomi’s MIUI.
