The aim is to revolutionize the way people live, work, and connect, introducing transformative experiences in the ever-evolving world of AI.
One key differentiator is HONOR’s on-device LLM, which distinguishes itself from cloud-based models. It leverages its understanding of the user’s device to provide highly personalized services, tailored to individual preferences. The development of this on-device LLM involved a concerted effort by HONOR and Qualcomm Technologies, focusing on three critical areas: performance, efficiency, and user privacy. The result is an LLM that efficiently utilizes the device’s power while ensuring data protection, making it secure and private.
The HONOR Magic6, equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform, will be at the forefront of this generative AI revolution, boasting seven billion parameters. To demonstrate the incredible AI capabilities, HONOR showcased an AI video creation demo, allowing users to effortlessly create customized short videos through voice commands to their smart voice assistant YOYO. Users can personalize their videos with various templates, themes, and music.
At the Snapdragon Summit 2023, HONOR also unveiled Magic Capsule, an eye-tracking-based multimodal interaction, and three key features of MagicRing: Connected Camera, Connected Input, and multi-device screen sharing. These innovations, driven by the latest Snapdragon Seamless technology, enable seamless data exchange between devices, offering stability and power efficiency like never before.
HONOR remains dedicated to fostering an ecosystem of on-device AI technology through collaborations with global partners. Their focus on human-centric innovation promises an intelligent and connected future, where AI enhances the lives of people across the globe.
