Instead of EMUI, the Honor phones will now run on Magic UI 2.0. A new version will be available soon and will bring the same GPU Turbo 3.0 which is also found on the Huawei P30 phones.

Magic UI 2.1 on the Honor View 20 and Honor Magic 2 will allow games a higher frame rate. Lower power consumption by 10% can also be expected. This also means more games are supported from the initial six to 25 titles.
