Huawei Debuting Emotion UI For Android Phones This Summer

Love ’em or hate ’em, manufacturer-applied Android UI enhancements are part of what makes one company’s phones stand out from another’s; even with all phone hardware obscured, you’d still be able to tell Samsung’s TouchWiz from HTC’s Sense. We’ve talked before about how Huawei is looking to raise its public profile in the Android sphere, and now we learn that one of the ways it’s hoping to do so is with a UI of its own, revealing plans for its Emotion UI.

There isn’t much info available at the moment about just what sort of features and design Emotion will have, but we should get more details shortly, when Huawei takes the wraps off the UI on June 9. We imagine that plenty of you will be upset to see any UI at all, with the implementation itself a moot point, but we can understand where Huawei’s coming from with this; if it gets things right, this could go a long way to building brand recognition. What little’s been revealed so far suggests Huawei will try to keep things “smart” and “simple”, which has us cautiously optimistic.

Following Huawei’s revelation, we’ll have only a short wait before Emotion starts getting into customers’ hands, with the UI shipping on the Ascend D and Ascend P this summer.
