Early build of Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI v5.0 leaks out on the Huawei P9

The Huawei P9 is one of those new phones that have that stylish look and fast performance to really impress, and all of that is offered at a price slightly lower than that of your traditional Samsung and Apple flagships.

Now, a very early build of Huawei's Emotion UI, or EMUI 5.0, working on top of the newest Android 7.0 Nougat has leaked, and it shows quite a few visual changes. Most importantly, it reveals a new option that allows you to enable an app drawer in the interface. Previously, EMUI came with an Apple-inspired, no app drawer style, and bringing the app drawer back has been one common request from many users.

Apart from that you can see the deep customizations possible with EMUI 5.0: themes that completely transform the look of your phone, and a neat dropdown with a ton of useful toggles. You can also see the style of the menus with those rounded toggles and icons.

Right below this new leaked video, you can also see another footage that surfaced just a couple of days ago, showing a shorter walkthrough of the new interface, but both corroborate each other and seem legitimate. How do you like what you see?
