Huawei's Emotion UI is coming on June 9

Earlier this month we informed you that Huawei was working on its own custom Android user interface. After today's news, it seems like we won't have to wait much longer until we actually get to see what the company's creation looks like. Enigmatically titled Chinese portal 163.com reports that The Android skin by Huawei will be called Emotion UI, and June 9 is the day, on which it will be unveiled. Then later in July, the custom overlay should already be present on Huawei Android smartphones, including the company's flagship, the Huawei Ascend D quad.

And this is pretty much all that the report reveals, meaning that we have no further details about Emotion UI and its looks. We don't even know whether its features are tailored in unison with the needs of users in China, or whether it is suitable for consumers globally. However, that the interface will be based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich seems like a pretty safe bet. Also, Huawei claims that it has "listened carefully to the needs of users," so who knows, Emotion UI might not disappoint after all.

We expect to know more about Huawe's Emotion UI in 12 days, and we'll give you the goods as soon as we get them.

For some reason I really like Huawei's hardware design and I'm excited to try out their software. I have a feeling that Huawei could end up being for phones what Asus is for tablets.

Well, maybe they'll make stock better. It still looks like stock, from the picture. They'll probably add useful tweaks like Moto did.

That picture literally is stock. Even Moto changed the icons a bit. I think they are probably just using that pic as a placeholder until they unveil the real deal.

Huawei should also announce the U.S. release date for the D Quad on that day.
