Huawei has just made the news official. The manufacturer will officially launch EMUI 11, its in-house overlay based on Android, at the next HDC (Huawei Developer Conference) to be held this Thursday, September 10, 2020. In its teaser, Huawei has focused on the cross-platform features that will offer the new interface.
As you probably know, Huawei is in the throes of immeasurable difficulties, due to the US sanctions, which the company is suffering from. Faced with this extraordinary situation, several analysts do not give much of the mobile division of the manufacturer, even affirming that Huawei could abandon the smartphone market, for lack of suppliers.
Despite everything, Huawei is staying the course. As expected, the Shenzhen firm will hold its new Huawei Developer Conference this Thursday, September 10, 2020 (HDC) dedicated this time to Harmony OS 2.0, HMS Core 5.0 and EMUI 11. Ahead of the event, the company has just published a teaser concerning its new home overlay based on Android.
The promotional image put forward by Huawei is accompanied by a rather evocative slogan: " Add wings to the imagination, smartphones are just smartphones, what else can they be? ". The Huawei image shows the presence of a refrigerator, microwave or air conditioner, all interconnected to a smartphone.
Should we deduce thatEMUI 11 will give pride of place to a multiplatform experience, thanks to which it will be possible to control your connected household appliances from your smartphone? We already know that EMUI 11 will incorporate a major novelty: " distributed technology ”.

Introduced a few weeks ago by Dr Wang Chenglu, president of the software engineering section at Huawei, this name simply translates Huawei's desire to interconnect all of its products, the smartphone being of course at the heart of the process. Thus, a user will be able to access the camera, microphones, or screens of all their Huawei-branded devices from any terminal.

It will also be revealed in September, and should unexpectedly be available in four versions, all 5G compatible. The overlay will then be deployed on around forty Huawei smartphones.
