Along with Android Nougat 7.0, the phone will also get EMUI 5 which comes with a major makeover as it streamlines the user interface and cuts down on the number of steps needed to reach core functions. It will allow people to choose a home screen with or without an app drawer, as well as run multiple profiles and add the ability to easily switch between them.

EMUI 5 also adds machine learning to analyze and adapt to user behavior over time. It will offer improved capabilities and flexibility around security with App Lock. Finally, it will also feature a more intelligent power management system, with a selection of power saving modes so you can manage your device’s battery consumption.
