Our country is very fond of the company's products Huawei. This is easy to track not only in sales statistics, but also in our Telegram chat, where this topic is discussed very often and hotly. That is why the release of a new operating system is always, albeit small, an event that users around the world are waiting for. Now their time has come and they have waited. The company Huawei has finally rolled out EMUI 10.1 firmware for many of its compatible smartphones around the world. And at the same time I prepared firmware updates for Magic UI 3.1 for smartphones Honor. Now many more people will be able to update, and their smartphones will work in a new way.
Very soon, it will be available on a huge number of smartphones.
Why install new firmware
As with all new things, the updated firmware of a smartphone or tablet always brings some kind of new user experience. More often than not, updates are not limited to “cosmetics”, which sometimes also take the interface to a new level. Often whole menus and windows change in firmware. It is these gradual improvements that have led to the fact that now, even on small smartphone screens, everything looks very informative. It is not for nothing that hundreds and thousands of the world's best psychologists, designers and marketers work every day for this. I talked about the advantages of a small screen and about my unwillingness to buy a “shovel” in this article and gave many arguments in favor of a small smartphone.
In addition to interface updates, new functions are also emerging, some of which are based on information collected from forums and thematic portals, including our Telegram chat. All of them sometimes make us think that we have almost a new phone in our hands, and if we also clean it inside and out, then the sensations will generally be “like new”.
But what interesting Huawei has added to its new firmware and why should it be downloaded by everyone who uses more or less relevant smartphones Huawei and Honor? Maybe you shouldn't install it at all and it's better to use what you already have, so as not to make it worse according to the principle “works – don't touch”. Let's look at this question.
When will it be possible to install EMUI 10.1 and Magic UI 3.1
Huawei announced a global update to EMUI 10.1 for their phones. As I said, this is a joint update for Huawei and HONOR, so users will be able to download both EMUI 10.1 and Magic UI 3.1.
Honor will get the update too.
EMUI 10.1 was announced back in March along with Huawei P40 series devices. This EMUI build brought a number of improvements, although some of them were somewhat hidden from users.
The company announced that a large number of smartphones will receive this update starting later this month. Therefore, you will have to wait a bit, but soon everything will be and the company is already completing work in this direction, so the bill went into days.

What's new in EMUI 10.1 and Magic UI 3.1
In EMUI 10, the company Huawei launched the AOD (Always On Display) feature. EMUI 10.1 also keeps 3D rendering always on, which allows for better graphics when displaying complex textures.
Three new fingerprint unlocking animations will also arrive alongside EMUI 10.1, the company said. These animations were inspired by the elements of poetry: earth, fire and water.
A new multi-window feature has also been added in the form of the Multi-Window function. You can work with two applications at the same time, as well as drag images, text and files between the two windows. It may not always be convenient on a small smartphone screen, but many will come in handy. At least on tablets it should go with a bang.
New firmware Huawei and Honor are always of interest.
The animation in the new firmware will become smoother thanks to new processing mechanisms. This applies to all system menus, including the side menu. I had no particular complaints about this, but since the company did it, it means that it sees a problem in this and understands that it did not fully work out this issue in its time.
This update also adds Huawei MeeTime. It is a native video calling app Huawei which has many features. This app supports FullHD video calling between devices Huawei. It turns out that the application will not be cross-platform, so it can be considered an analogue of FaceTime from Apple.
Improvements Huawei Share are also included in this update. At first, it was possible to transfer data between smartphones and PCs. But now you can do the same between your smartphone and other devices, including other smartphones, PCs, smart speakers, tablets, and so on.
Multi-screen collaboration has been improved while a photo gallery feature has been added that syncs across devices. Also in this update will debut its own head assistant Huawei under the name 'Celia'.
Well, we can say that the update is significant. Although this is not the next version of the firmware, but only its addition, it still turned out very well and, apparently, it is necessary to update.
