Honor Announces Android Oreo 8.0 Based EMUI 8.0 With AI And Machine Learning


Huawei has announced today the upgraded version of its in-house user interface- EMUI 8.0 that runs on the Android Oreo platform. Aimed at delivering a quality user experience, the Huawei UI aided by AI-powered Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition, Smart Tips, and AI Accelerated Translator has now received an upgrade.

In terms of functionality, the EMUI 8.0 is based on machine learning and AI capabilities like Intelligent Resource Allocation, Intelligent Context Awareness, User Behavior or Intelligent Behavior Prediction. Further, it claims to engage in low memory management by allocating resources in a way to provide more space. All of this enables one-hand operation navigation dock, pinned shortcuts, customized themes, private space optimization, simplified settings, accessibility to recently deleted documents and in general phone management.

“The update significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function through its smart applications like navigation dock and smart screen and enables the user to reach 90% of the core functions in just a single click. We have developed the EMUI 8.0 for those who live and work on-the-go,” said a Huawei R&D spokesperson.

Based on Android 8.0 Oreo, EMUI 8.0 packs features like Smart Resolution, dynamic wallpaper, navigation bar customizations and more. A successor to EMUI 5.1, the software aims to provide simplified-interface enabling a single touch switching between user spaces, prompt data transfer and quick file sharing abilities. Incorporating the features of its predecessor, EMUI 8.0 also gives smart tips on the basis of behaviour cognizance and requirements.

The EMUI 8.0 is available on the Honor View 10 and the soon-to-be-launched Honor 9 Lite out of the box, and will be available on other devices such as the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 Lite in the near future.
