Enhancement in MagicOS 8.0

MagicOS 8.0 offers enhancements in four domains: intelligent networking, efficiency, confidentiality and safety, and visual appeal. Honor has branded its intent-based user interface as Magic Portal. Put another way, it’s a shortcut suggestion tool that enables users to quickly swipe between different app services.

Over 100 well-known applications in China were already supported by Magic Portal during theĀ launch. Applications for travel, productivity, social media, search, entertainment, commerce, and eating are among the many categories in which they fall. Baidu Map, Amap, Didi, Bilibili, Douyin, Youku, and Alipay are a few of the most popular applications.

Honor’s MagicLM

With seven billion parameters, MagicLM works at the platform level, utilizing the device’s data processing to improve privacy. Honor and Qualcomm have collaborated to ensure seamless and effective operation on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform. In addition to its typical natural language understanding features, MagicLM can create films and is the first platform in the market to let users find a certain frame inside a video. Additionally, it is connected with YoYO, the voice assistant.

In addition, HonorĀ introduced the LLM Ecosystem Programme in China. This project encourages MagicOS to include vertical and cloud-based AI models. In the first half of 2024, partners including Amap, Baidu, and Umetrip will introduce their experiences.
