Huawei has started issuing EMUI 12 to some smartphones, having ran open beta tests towards the end of last year. Unsurprisingly, the first device to receive stable EMUI 12 builds are those that were eligible for beta builds. Hence, EMUI 12 begins its global rollout on the following devices:
As the screenshot below shows, EMUI 12 is a large download at over 1 GB. Typically, Huawei staggers OS update rollouts, so it could take a few weeks or even a few months before the update reaches your device. As far as we can tell, Huawei has based EMUI 12 on Android 11, not HarmonyOS 2. According to a blog post, Huawei has built on AOSP by adding visual touches from HarmonyOS 2. In effect, EMUI 12 is a 'taste of HarmonyOS', while still relying on Android.
EMUI 12 brings several new features to recent Huawei flagships, including a redesigned UI and 'more natural animations'. Additionally, Huawei has added a slider for adjusting the font-weight within EMUI and an 'all-new' control panel that resembles iOS. Huawei has improved inter-device connectivity too through Device+ Smart Collaboration and the ability to transfer video calls between devices, simultaneously.
