A new round of Huawei and Honor devices begin to upgrade to EMUI 9.1 as of today. As they have in Huawei Central After having updated eight models just a few weeks ago, the company continues to work on fulfilling its promise to upgrade up to half a hundred devices to the new version of its Android-based operating system.
The list of devices that today receive a new incremental version of EMUI 9.1 consists of a total of 10 different terminals, from the Nova series to the Porsche Design models of the Mate family. Three of the Honor models released last year are also updated:
- Huawei P20 Pro
- Huawei P20
- Huawei Mate 10
- Huawei Mate 10 Pro
- Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design
- Huawei Nova 3
- Honor 10
- Honor V10
- Honor Play
According to Huawei Central, the update has begun its deployment among the Chinese variants of the first-mentioned phones, and in the next few days, it will begin to reach the rest of the models sold globally. It is advisable to use the HiCare tool to check for updates available in case it does not appear to download through the system settings.
As for the novelties, it is convenient to comment that the Ark compiler that arrives with this update is a component of the operating system that is responsible for “translating” the code of the applications into machine language –like any other compiler–, with the difference that in this case, Huawei claims to have achieved greater performance by eliminating the need for a virtual interpreter.
So the translation of the code into machine language is a faster process. In theory, this compiler improves the operational fluidity of the operating system by up to 24%, redicting the response time by up to 44%, and accelerating third-party applications by 60%, which according to the company’s words translates into a performance equivalent to that of iOS applications.
On the other hand, the EROFS file system was announced for the first time in the middle of last year, and now comes to the list models with the update to EMUI 9.1, to offer a read speed that increases an average of 20% with compared to the current systems –EXT4 and F2FS–, while saving up to 2GB of internal storage can be saved thanks to the new architecture of this file system.
Beyond all of the above, EMUI 9.1 reaches the mentioned mobiles with the rest of the new features of this version, including a renewed interface, redesigned system applications and other interesting improvements such as GPU Turbo 3.0 or the AI-based video editor.
