HONOR 4X GETS THE FIRST EMUI 3.0 UPDATE
Yes, it is here in India! We have announced an upgrade to our Emotion UI (EMUI) for all honor 4X users in the subcontinent. The EMUI 3.0 update introduces visual improvements to the overall user experience. This is the first time we have rolled out an update here in the country and, be assured, more will follow.
So what’s new, you ask? The update introduces a new theme, ‘Go Green’ which is inspired by nature. When you turn the phone on, you are greeted by a lock screen that combines, as the name suggests, ‘green’ sensibilities with clean aesthetics. It is not just the lock screen that has been changed. The fonts can be customised and in sync with the theme, the application icons too get a green palette makeover.
The theme depicts the importance of ‘thinking green,’ not just aesthetically but also conceptually. Through the theme, we aim to create awareness for environmental issues that plague us at the moment. We believe that “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” That is why, we urge the users to act green, eat green and build green.
Apart from the modified design architecture, we have also worked on a number of stability improvements to give you a more efficient user experience. We have fixed network instability, especially while using open WiFi hotspots and optimised usage of the power button. We have also updated many important applications from Google like Play Books, Calendar, Chrome, Cloud Print, News & Weather, Gmail, Google Play Services, Play Newsstand and Play Music.
To find the theme, search for ‘Go Green’ in ‘Themes’ on your honor 4X.
We have always believed in bettering the smartphone experience for our users with innovative functions and processes. In the future updates, we will introduce more online themes, wallpapers and ringtones.
