EMUI 9.1/Magic UI 2.1 update is being officially rolled out across selected HONOR devices in the UK. The update brings faster and better performance, intelligent video editing, and a new look to HONOR smartphones.
The upgrade arrived for HONOR 20 LITE and HONOR View20 in June. Other devices including HONOR 8X, HONOR 10, HONOR Play, HONOR View10 and HONOR 10 LITE will receive upgrades starting from today.
“With the new EMUI 9.1/Magic UI 2.1 update, we offer an innovative performance with system speed enhancements to help our users lead an intelligent life,” said George Zhao, President of HONOR.
EMUI 9.1/Magic UI 2.1 top features includes:
Faster and Better Performance
GPU Turbo 3.0, the new generation of the all-powerful GPU Turbo, covers a total of 25 mainstream games for users to enjoy an ultimate high frame rate and low power consumption gaming experience. The new update reduces SoC (System-on-Chip) power consumption during gameplay by 10% while offering top-quality graphics.
The all-new EROFS (Extendable Read-Only File System) improves the smoothness and performance of all HONOR smartphones. This increases random read performance by an average of 20%, app start-up speed by 10%, data reading performance in a low-memory condition, and improves the security of system files.
Intelligent Vlog Video Editing
EMUI 9.1/Magic UI 2.1’s powerful AI vlog editing feature makes editing easy and lets users create professional-level vlogs for social sharing in just one click. The system intelligently recognizes and scores frames from a video to extract the essence.
It also automatically adds presets, background music and special effects to turn users’ most memorable moments into a cinematic clip.
New and Better Look
To improve the user experience with the interface, app icons have been revamped to be more realistic, and their borders have been defined to increase readability.
The new EMUI 9.1/Magic UI 2.1 theme also features a set of beautiful wallpapers to give HONOR phones a brand-new look. The wallpapers capture the in-the-moment beauty of color collision and fluttering silk that gives the phone its visual spectacle.
Smarter All-Scenario Living with AR Measure (currently only available on HONOR View20)
Coupled with TOF (Time of Flight) cameras and cutting-edge AR technology, Magic UI 2.1 allows users to take a quick measurement for objects and people. The app serves as a portable measurement tool for length, area, and volume with a single touch.
To update to EMUI 9.1, users can simply go to ‘Setting’, then tap on ‘System’, and select ‘Software Update’.
