Huawei is still in the process of migrating its Chinese smartphones to its own HarmonsyOS. So in the meantime, global models will keep using EMUI. But don’t worry, as the Android-based operating system is getting a new version with the EMUI 12.

The tech company is mum about what Android version the EMUI 12 is based on. But considering their current state and what the latest Nova 9 has, this may still be based on Android 11.


That said, don’t expect drastic improvements on the EMUI 12 update, but you should see a lot of visual and usability improvements. It should have some of HarmonyOS 2.0‘s features, which are primarily intended to strengthen the smartphones’ integration with Huawei’s ecosystem of products that include laptops, tablets, and audio devices. Such features include screen mirroring, easy file sharing, and more.
