EMUI 11 on HUAWEI Mate 40 Series also supports “Eyes On Display”, which utilizes 3D Depth Sensing Camera and Gesture Sensor to detect user's attention. With just a glance, the user can illuminate the screen and trigger the AOD animation.
First introduced in EMUI 10, Smart Gesture Control now supports more gestures in EMUI 11. The new additions are more flexible and can be applied to a wider range of scenarios.

The pressing gesture allows the user to accept incoming calls and control media playback, and vertical swipes can be used to adjust the volume while listening to music.
In addition, the ringtone volume for incoming calls is automatically lowered when the user is looking at the screen. This capability offers the user more options for interacting with the device than just physical controls.
