Right after honor launched the honor 7X FullView Display smartphone, they gave us an in-depth preview of their first AI smartphone – the honor View10 (also known as the honor V10). Check out their 26-minute long presentation, and see for yourself what you can expect from the honor View10 AI smartphone!
The honor View10 AI Smartphone
As honor’s first AI smartphone, the honor View10 boasts a plethora of AI functionality, or so the marketing pitch goes. First and foremost, it is powered by the Kirin 970 SoC – the first to have a dedicated NPU (find out how fast it is!).
The Kirin 970 with its dedicated NPU is what enables its AI functionality, delivering 25X better neural processing performance at 1/50th the power consumption of a traditional CPU. Let’s take a look at its key features.
Photos taken with the honor View10 will be adjusted automatically to create a final output that looks like they were taken professionally. In addition to recognising the subject in focus, it has the ability to intelligently recognise up to 13 different scenes.
AI Motion Detection
The main camera also has the capability to predict motion in order to improve the focusing response. This allows it to better capture moving subjects with less motion blur.
AI Front Camera
The front camera uses the machine learning results from millions of portraits to improve the look of the portraits you take. It also attempts to intelligently adjust the brightness of the front flash to better capture your selfie without overblowing the highlights.
NPU Driven Translation
The honor View10 comes with NPU driven translation, running on Microsoft Translator, and powered by the Kirin 970 NPU. It allows you to take a picture of foreign words and have it translated into your language of choice.
The honor View10 will intelligently adjust graphics settings and system resources for better gaming performance.
Using NFC Connect, multiple devices can be linked as mobile speakers, delivering synchronised surround music. Note that these devices must support honor Sync Play.
