On-device AI, foldables are future of smart devices: HONOR

Foldables about to go mainstream, HONOR says



Honor Magic Vs

HONOR had the opportunity to discuss the future of smart devices at the Fortune Global Forum 2023 in Abu Dhabi earlier this week, where the Shenzhen-based brand pointed out that foldables are on the cusp of going mainstream.

Citing research from Counterpoint, HONOR bared that nearly two-thirds (64%) of high-end smartphone users in China are willing to switch to a foldable device, with the latter’s form factor and bigger screen among key reasons behind such willingness.

Interestingly, HONOR’s manufacturing of foldables has just hit the 1 million mark, meaning the potential for mass production is right at its tipping point.

Currently, the HONOR Magic V2 is the best-selling foldable in China, with a 25% market share, per Omdia.

Having the rest of the industry innovate in the foldable space will likely lead to lower prices and make foldable smartphones even more accessible.

Other updates: Eye comfort lab, on-device AI

HONOR also touched on human-centric technology innovation as one of the other key themes during its panel discussion.

The company revealed that it has invested more than US$ 140 million on display technology research and development, as well as developing over 500 display-related patents.

HONOR has just opened a new dedicated eye comfort lab as well to deepen its expertise in this area. For its devices, HONOR is debuting a series of innovative eye comfort features such as its 3840Hz PWM dimming technology and Circadian Night Display.

Meanwhile, it was also announced that during the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in October, HONOR’s upcoming Magic6 smartphone will feature on-device LLM powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 platform.

This is aligned with HONOR’s intent of utilizing hybrid AI models by using on-device AI for personalized content and services while ensuring user privacy.
