With Android 11 already beginning its beta stages in multiple flagships of the market, including Huawei smartphones, the time for the debut of EMUI 11 is also approaching. But according to what was reported by some important personalities of Huawei, EMUI 11 would be the latest version of this Android skin for the launch of HarmonyOS 2.0.
Since May 2019 we have known that the universe of software for mobile devices of Huawei it has become quite hostile. Although Android is an open source OS, distinctive features such as the Google Mobile Services package require prior contracts. So since then it makes sense that Huawei has planned its own OS.
EMUI 11 would be a transition software for HarmonyOS
According to a China software news blog called MyDriveres, Wang Chenglu, head of the software department of Huawei Consumer Business Group, has revealed details about EMUI 11. In particular, details that refer to its internal code and how this code is similar in several respects to the code that they plan to use in HarmonyOS 2.0 .
In short, everything seems to indicate that EMUI 11 would be a transition software and its true final form will have a different name: HarmonyOS 2.0.
Currently, the Huawei Mobile Services suite of apps is not very popular compared to the globally approved Gooble Mobile Services, so a proprietary mobile operating system will not necessarily help users decide on a Huawei smartphone over others. Android phones.
But the reality is that the Chinese manufacturer does not have many alternatives. The US Commerce Department seems to be getting tougher with its bans and Huawei is slowly running out of options. Naturally, you have been pushed to start developing your own solutions, including building your own OS.
So EMUI 11 would be the last version of this Android skin before giving way no longer to a skin, but to a totally different mobile operating system. No EMUI 12 on the horizon, then, just new versions of HarmonyOS that compete inch by inch with new versions of Android as they are announced.
