“EMUI 9.1 brings some significant upgrades including GPU Turbo 3.0, EROFS, Ark compiler, and much more”
EMUI 9.1 update rollout has now started with the gradual plan including 49 devices, handsets from both Honor and Huawei. EMUI 9.1 doesn’t run on Android Q though, it’s still Android Pie but brings some big features that are worth the upgrade. Needless to say, the update would first be in the beta form for the devices being tested early on. However, new information is that the EMUI 9.1 stable update is rolling out to 10 more new Huawei devices today. The stable build is rolling out to the below-mentioned devices in several regions, including Singapore.
The list of 10 Huawei devices is as follows: Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate 10 Porsche Design, Mate RS Porsche Design, P20, P20 Pro, Nova 3, Honor 10, Honor V10, and Honor Play. All these devices have in common is the Kirin 970 SoC, so Huawei is currently seeding the update to its premium handsets. As per the schedule released by Huawei, some devices like the Nova 3i, P30 Lite, Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro, Y9 (2019), Y6 Pro (2019), Y5 (2019) are still due to get the update by the end of this month.
EMUI 9.1 users can look forward to some big changes with the new update, including the overall look and feel of the UX. There are new icons and wallpapers and overall minimalistic design. Huawei also brings GPU Turbo 3.0 with EMUI 9.1, which is an upgrade of its existing GPU Turbo 2.0 technology that enhances gameplay. EMUI 9.1 has also introduced a new file system called EROFS. It is a short form of Extendable Read-Only File System that essentially results in a performance increase of 20 percent, saves storage, and leads to better read speeds. There’s also the Ark compiler that brings architecture level optimizations resulting in significant performance gains. Let us know if you have received the update on your devices.
