China's Honor Unveils AI-Enhanced Magic 6 Pro Smartphone Globally

Honor unveils the Magic 6 Pro smartphone globally, featuring an eye-tracking AI function for remote car control. The company aims to expand its international market share and compete with industry giants like Apple and Oppo. Honor is working on integrating the LlaMA 2 large language model (LLM) into its phones.

Chinese technology company Honor has made a global debut of its latest smartphone, the Magic 6 Pro. The device comes equipped with an experimental eye-tracking AI function that allows users to remotely control their cars simply by looking at their phone screens. While the feature is currently available in China, Honor is actively working on integrating it into its international offerings.


Previously owned by Huawei Technologies and now under the ownership of state-owned Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co, Honor had exclusively released its new phones in China until now. However, with the global launch of the Magic 6 Pro, the company aims to expand its reach and compete with industry giants like Apple and Oppo in the international smartphone market.


The timing of the launch is strategic, as tech and telecom companies are gearing up for the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, which is set to commence on Monday. By introducing innovative features like generative AI, Honor hopes to generate buzz and attract potential customers, thereby boosting its business prospects.

The integration of generative AI into smartphones is seen as a potential game-changer for the industry. However, experts caution that it may also raise legal and ethical concerns. Despite this, smartphone makers are optimistic that the excitement surrounding AI will help revitalize the sluggish smartphone market.


In addition to the eye-tracking AI function, Honor is also working on incorporating the LlaMA 2 large language model (LLM) into its phones. Similar to ChatGPT, this tool will enhance the user experience and further differentiate Honor's offerings in the competitive market.


Furthermore, Honor is not limiting its innovations to smartphones alone. Alongside the Magic 6 Pro, the company is launching the MagicBook Pro 16 laptop, which boasts an AI feature enabling users to seamlessly transfer applications between devices. For instance, users can effortlessly move messaging apps from an Android smartphone to a Windows PC with a simple drag-and-drop action.


George Zhao, the CEO of Honor, expressed his belief in the power of collaborative synergy, particularly in the era of AI. He stated, "We firmly believe in the transformative power of collaborative synergy, especially in the era of AI."
