HONOR Unveils Behind-the-Scenes Technology for New HONOR Magic5 Pro

Published

on

HONOR has today shared an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how it developed the industry-leading HONOR Magic5 Pro smartphone. Debuted at Mobile World Congress 2023, the HONOR Magic5 Pro boasts impressive breakthroughs in design, display, photography, and performance. Now, HONOR is sharing never-seen-before details of its sophisticated R&D practices and facilities.

“We are proud to showcase the technical facilities that are the driving force behind our human-centric innovations,” said George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co, Ltd. “Our unwavering R&D commitment allows us to develop ground-breaking devices like the HONOR Magic5 Pro. We hope to continue breaking new ground with innovative new products for consumers everywhere.”

Equipped with the all-new HONOR Image Engine, the HONOR Magic5 Pro debuts an all-new Millisecond Falcon Capture algorithm, which not only enables some of the fastest capturing speeds on the market but also pushes the boundaries of image clarity. To achieve this, HONOR founded its own dedicated camera labs to conduct a quantitative and qualitative analysis, which informed the development of its AI algorithm.

By solving many challenges around shooting moving scenes with different speeds, distances, and lighting conditions, the HONOR Magic5 Pro takes the imaging process to a whole new level. For example, its autofocus speed has increased by 245%, compared to the previous generation. Powered with intelligent AI Recognition technology, the HONOR Magic5 Pro’s breakthrough AI Motion Sensing feature enables users to capture the best moment in fast-moving scenarios, every time.

To enable this, HONOR worked closely with Qualcomm to maximize the computing power by fully harnessing the CPU, GPU, and NPU, boosting the cache interval by more than six times – from 240 to 1500 milliseconds. With a larger data cache interval and an AI network trained with more than 270,000 images, the HONOR Magic5 Pro’s camera can help users more easily capture their magic moment in movements.

The HONOR Magic5 Pro supports Circadian Night Display and is the first smartphone to receive the TÜV Rheinland Circadian Friendly Certification. The Circadian Night Display brings a sleep-easing mode that regulates blue light and gently transitions the night-time color temperature in a natural way. According to HONOR’s lab tests, this feature can increase melatonin secretion by up to 20% within three hours, helping users to get a better night’s sleep.

HONOR has a long-standing commitment to human-centric eye care innovation, beginning its research of eye care technologies back in 2016. This time, HONOR conducted research, with data collected from 10,000 users to uncover the optimal display-dimming technology. Utilizing this research, HONOR developed the Dynamic Dimming feature, which is tested to be effective at lowering eye fatigue by 18% after 45 minutes of use.

“Controlling our exposure to blue light is increasingly important for sleep and general health, particularly with increasing amounts of screen time late in the day,” commented Dr. Glen Jeffery, Professor of Neuroscience – Institute of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Brain Science at UCL. “Modifying screens to reduce disruption is critical, and HONOR’s development of their circadian night display and dynamic dimming feature is an important move in this direction.”

HONOR invested over $20 million in quality testing equipment at its world-class Global Compliance and Testing Center (GCTC). Thanks to such sophisticated testing facilities, HONOR can run in-house tests to verify more than 200 certification test standards, including the Conformité Européenne (CE) certification. HONOR goes above and beyond these standards to ensure the best product quality.

For example, with its in-house OTA Anechoic Chamber, HONOR has a perfectly controlled laboratory environment for testing the mobile communications experience. Traditionally, OTA performance and SAR values are opposing concepts and hard to balance, however, HONOR’s GCTC is able to help its products deliver best-in-class connectivity performance while maintaining a consistently lower SAR value to ensure user safety. To this end, HONOR’s SAR rating for mass production is 35% lower than the compliance requirement.

HONOR runs SAR tests on every single batch of devices, and is the only device OEM to have Qualcomm’s Smart-Transmit SAR certification. It also gained the industry’s coveted Vodafone SAR certification. From the beginning of product development to mass production, HONOR’s products adhere to the strictest global standards to provide its end users with the best quality products. HONOR conducts more than 260 tests on the thousands of different components in a smartphone, ensuring that the HONOR Magic5 Pro is truly built to last and can be a trusted mobile device for users everywhere.

Apple Detects Spyware Targeting iPhones in Multiple Countries

Published

on

Apple has issued a second spyware attack warning to iPhone users in 98 countries, raising concerns about the growing threat to mobile security. This follows a similar alert in April targeting users in 92 countries.

While specific details about the latest attacks remain under wraps, the alert serves as a stark reminder of the evolving threat landscape. India is one confirmed country where users received the notification.

Spyware, a particularly invasive type of malware, can grant attackers complete access to an iPhone, including encrypted messages, audio, and video. The notorious Pegasus spyware from NSO Group is a well-known example.

“Apple detected that you are being targeted by a mercenary spyware attack that is trying to remotely compromise the iPhone associated with your Apple ID -xxx-,” Apple wrote in its new spyware alert.

Adding to the concern, researchers recently revealed the return of LightSpy, a “particularly dangerous” campaign capable of pinpointing a target’s location with “near-perfect accuracy.”

The worrying aspect of these attacks is their ability to exploit “zero-click” vulnerabilities, meaning infection can occur without any user interaction, such as opening a malicious link or attachment.

This highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and following Apple’s security recommendations, which may include updating your device to the latest iOS version.
