A swathe of new features is on its way for New Zealand's Huawei phone owners.

The latest EMUI 9.1 update has already launched for P30 and P30 Pro users, with other devices getting the update over the next month.

And there's good news for those who love filming on their phones.

Its new dual view video mode lets people film using both the main camera lens and the zoom lens at the same time, splicing them together into a split-screen video.

It also comes with a new feature called Huawei Vlog for budding filmmakers. It simplifies the editing process and allows people to add more effects and features easily to your videos, promising the chance to create a "personal cinematic masterpiece".

The phones' cameras get put to use with a new augmented reality feature called AR Measure, which uses them to accurately measure length, volume and total area. This feature is only available on the P30 Pro.

Using the Time Of Flight Camera technology, Huawei says it can accurately measure a person's height by scanning them head-to-toe in the app.

Huawei's update also replaces the file system with an improved version, bringing not just a 20 percent speed boost but also an extra 2GB of space for pictures and music.

Gamers also get a boost with the improved GPU Turbo 3.0, with 19 more international games getting support - bringing the total to 25.

Other features include the ability to choose a custom video for your incoming caller ringtone and improving the Huawei Phone Clone feature, to transfer all your old data to a new phone.

The update is free to download and will be available for the Mate 9, Mate 10 and Mate 20 series, as well as the P10 and P20 series and Nova 3 series.
