Upgrade Features

  • A cleaner, more interactive interface A brand new UI and effects inspired by the blues and whites of the Aegean Sea. Simplified gestures, with most operations completed in 3 steps. EMUI 5.0 is more customizable, offering an optional Android App Drawer layout to users
  • Enhanced features System operations are more fluid, allowing you to view a massive amount of images, browse websites, and perform searches faster
  • Notifications An optimized design combines shortcuts with notifications to reduce the complexity of user actions. Touch and hold notifications to quickly block messages and notifications. Reminder cards are stacked to save space.
  • Three dimensional task management Tasks are stacked three dimensionally on the UI. Smooth gestures allow users to scroll through tasks by sliding up and down or dismiss tasks by swiping left or right
  • Camera Camera now supports plug-in management. Infrequently used modes, like document readjustment, are presented as plug-ins to save internal memory on your phone.
  • Contacts Customization and sharing features added to name cards. The sharing feature allows quick sharing of contacts through Bluetooth, Facebook, and other methods. Added a scanner to the search box and lock screen, making it easier to add new contacts.
  • Email Improved how unread emails are tagged in the inbox. Users can now quickly delete, star, and mark emails as read or unread from the left sliding menu.
  • Settings Created a new suggested settings feature that recommends key settings based on the device’s current status. Now, your phone is more capable of adjusting to your habits. Added a newly designed drawer feature. When this feature is enabled, it hides non-system preset apps in a drawer on the home screen, presenting you with a simple and tidy layout.
  • Added a new drawer feature for settings. For settings that take two or more steps to set up, the user can now jump directly back to the main settings page with one gesture. Emergency information added
  • Users can add their names, blood type, and other information, so emergency services personnel can view this information from the lock screen. [Update notes] 1. EMUI 5.0 includes substantial changes to functionality, which may impact your usage habits.

    the huawei updater zip is broken . i downloaded it fro xda forum .
    does it automatically receive new updates or i have to do the same procedure every time ?
    Great job thanks .

    • If you are in another region, then i don’t think you will get automatic updates, and even if you get them it might be delayed upto several months, so it all depends on you, take or wait

    Hi , I’m lebanese and I live in Egypt, I manage to download it using the Hisuite and it created a folder called VIE-L29C185B320 and inside there is another folder called full and another sub directory contains update.zip.dbk and another sub directory contains hw and contains meafnaf and so and so. The problem is when I finished downloading it came up with a message no internet connection and the update failed. is there another method with these files I have . The first one is about 1.5 GB called update.zip.dbk, and the other one is about 816 MB. ? Any solution?

    • Your phone must be connected to WiFi during update, otherwise can not install it.
      Alternatively use twrp method

      • Bassem says:

        It worked at last, I had to do it at home because of some firewall restriction at work, It didn’t install the download not even manually. anyow , for those who aren’t able to install use the Hisuite method and connect the cable using MTP not charge. and it should work fine if you have the same firmware version mentioned by M. Bashir. Simply follow the instructions. (thanks Bashir.)
