Pay close attention to what Honor is preparing for us, which during the Snapdragon Summit 2023 event has shown visual control functionality for its future Honor Magic 6.
It is the brand that is killing it in Chinawhich was left with the hole left by Huawei after the veto of the United States Government, and now also consolidating itself in international markets such as one of the most interesting options of the medium/high cut in the Android catalogthe truth is Honor He even dares to appear at the industry’s biggest events and carpets.
Not in vain, to the firm based in Shenzhen and owned by the conglomerate Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co., Ltd. we have seen it accompany Qualcomm itself during the Snapdragon Summit 2023 just a few days ago in Hawaii, an event where we not only officially met very powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 now the functionality Qualcomm seamless that will allow us to unify devices, but also several partners of the San Diego giant went up to show some of their advances and its main innovations in development to the delight of locals and strangers.
This is the case of Honor, as our classmates told us. The edgeWell, in a video that was shown during one of the conferences of the snapdragon summit We were able to catch a glimpse of the hypothetical Honor Magic 6 that is expected imminentlywith a well-known design on the front (it’s all screen) in addition to dynamic islands which will be called magic capsule.
Not only that, and during the short speech by George Zhao, CEO of the Honor brandIn the background, an important novelty was being taught around how to control that dynamic window in the interface, which as we found it was possible to open or close automatically when looking at it or separating the view from it, functioning thanks to a visual control of which we still need more details and more information.
Unfortunately, we have nothing more to tell you than this eye tracking technologywhich will be combined with other sensors and obviously also with AI algorithms to facilitate human-machine interaction with our mobile phones in the future. In fact, it is that We don’t know any more use cases. than the one of these Magic capsules that would not by themselves justify the inclusion of a novelty like this.
Specifically, Zhao only confirmed when faced with a question that the look will be “one of the parameters that the smartphone will evaluate to interpret our intentions” and execute the orders well, so we can wait more action from sensors and software in a novelty that is obviously still in its infancy.
Qualcomm’s Hexagon NPU and its AI-related computing power It will allow technologies like this to be exploited, and the Snapdragon Summit was therefore a good place to teach it. For many it will not be important, but it is a very interesting accessibility tool that will facilitate interaction for many peopleespecially those with disabilities that make it difficult to use their hands.
