LinkedIn announced that it is now integrated with the Emui 8 Android operating system for smartphones from Huawei.

Huawei smartphone users with the new Emui 8 OS will be able to connect directly to their LinkedIn accounts, and profile information on their contacts will be directly integrated into the address books on their devices.


The handset maker introduced its new Mate 10 flagship smartphone in Munich Monday.

LinkedIn vice president of global business development Bob Rosin said in a blog post, “Whether it’s reading a message or receiving a phone call, you’ll instantly know more information about the contact, what company they work for and even see their LinkedIn profile photo. And if you receive an email from an unknown sender, with a single click, you’ll be able to see the sender’s professional identity. We look forward to more collaborations with Huawei.”
