The company claims that the devices updated to EMUI 9.0 will be much faster and smoother increasing the system operation by 12.9 per cent.

The company stated that EMUI 9.0 is the worlds first UI that can process and support various AI functionalities like scene detection and NPU based processing.
To check if your smartphone has got the update, you will need to go into the settings panel of the device. Where you will have to navigate to the ‘about phone’ tab and open it. Then you will need to open the system updates tab. There you need to press on check for updates.
If the update shows up you can press download and install, after which your device will reboot into the new UI. However, if it doesn’t show up, you will have to wait for the company to make it available on your device.
