Sneak preview of Emotion UI demonstrates Huawei’s ambitions
Berlin, Germany – Huawei today launched a sneak preview of the Huawei Emotion UI at IFA 2012. An Android-based user interface (UI), Emotion UI will play a critical role in cementing the strength of Huawei’s smartphone portfolio. Reinforcing Huawei’s user-centric design philosophy, “Design with Empathy”, Emotion UI is built on a clear understanding of how consumers interact with their smartphones and what they expect from these interactions.
“Emotion UI is a reflection of Huawei’s empathic design philosophy – built by consumers for consumers. In designing this user interface, we spoke to consumers to find out what they wanted from their smartphones, the type of experiences they sought when interacting with their devices and what we, as consumers ourselves, want from our smartphones. The team was very conscious about placing people before technology. We believe that it is only through listening to what consumers want and need that we can truly develop products that they will love,” said Dennis Poon, Global UI Design Director, Huawei Device.
