How HONOR Magic6 Pro’s AI features drive the smartphone brand to be no.1 in China

11:04:00 PM


HONOR, the eminent global provider of smart devices, clinched the top spot among leading smartphone brands in the latest study conducted by the International Data Corporation (IDC). According to Antonio Wang, Vice President at IDC, HONOR secured a remarkable 17% share in the charts, with a staggering Year-over-Year (YoY) shipments surge of 123.3% in Quarter 1, 2024.

The recent debut of the HONOR Magic6 Pro in China witnessed First Quarter shipments surpassing the combined shipments of its predecessors in the initial two quarters. This achievement is attributed to its cutting-edge AI functionalities. Excitingly, the HONOR Magic6 Pro is set to hit the Philippines market on May 8.

"Being part of a prestigious and competitive global technology company like HONOR, it's truly an honor for us. We're excited about the challenge ahead and fully committed to bringing technological breakthroughs and innovation to the Philippines. We aim to achieve significant milestones in this dynamic market,” said Stephen Cheng, Vice President of HONOR Philippines.

Moreover, HONOR’s overseas market has gained significant growth during the past year with a 200% growth rate. By Q1 2024, HONOR has entered more than 100 markets and ranked Top 5 in many markets including Europe, Midde East, Latin America and Malaysia.

With a theoretical capacity of 3579mAh/g for a pure silicon-based anode, this technology surpasses graphite by a remarkable tenfold. This development, akin to advancements seen in companies like Tesla, promises exceptional battery life and consistent performance.

Through the utilization of advanced materials boasting a 50% improvement in crystal density, the Magic6 Pro achieves a shock absorption capability up to ten times greater than before. This enhancement ensures unparalleled durability, securing the device against accidental drops and impacts.


AI Falcon Camera System

Responding to the surge in popularity of "sportography" and the escalating importance of Artificial Intelligence (AI), smartphone manufacturers are doubling down on efforts to enhance capture speed and image clarity. With this, HONOR has taken proactive strides to spearhead camera innovation in the industry, with the HONOR Magic Series boasting a distinctive AI falcon camera system.

In the Image Lab located in Shenzhen, HONOR has embraced the All-scenarios Automated Comprehensive Photographic Testing System. This revolutionary approach enables the optimization of the HONOR Image Engine across an extensive array of anticipated scenarios, ensuring unparalleled performance in diverse shooting conditions.

11:14:00 PM

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Google Cloud have entered into a new multi-year partnership to introduce Google Cloud's advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology to Samsung smartphone users worldwide. The collaboration kicks off with the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S24 series during Galaxy Unpacked in San Jose, California. Notably, Samsung takes the lead as the inaugural Google Cloud partner to integrate Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI through the cloud into their smartphone devices.

Expressing enthusiasm for the partnership, Janghyun Yoon, Corporate EVP and Head of Software Office of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics, stated, "Google and Samsung have a shared commitment to making technology more helpful and accessible to everyone. We are excited to debut the Galaxy S24 series as the first smartphones featuring Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI. Following extensive testing and competitive evaluation, the collaboration between Google Cloud and Samsung has resulted in delivering the finest Gemini-powered AI experience on the Galaxy."

Samsung is the first Google Cloud partner to deploy Gemini Pro on Vertex AI to consumers. Built from the ground up to be multimodal, Gemini can generalize and seamlessly understand, operate across, and combine different types of information including text, code, images, and video. Starting with Samsung-native applications, users can take advantage of the summarization feature across Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard.[ Galaxy AI features may require internet connection, Samsung Account login, and/or update to latest Android version. Product functionality may be dependent on your app and device settings. Some functions may not be compatible with certain apps or require additional software downloads, such as language packs. Availability of the service may vary by country, region, or market. Accuracy of results not guaranteed. For detailed specifications and conditions, refer to your local Samsung website.] Gemini Pro on Vertex AI provides Samsung with critical Google Cloud features, including security, safety, privacy, and data compliance.

Galaxy S24 series users can also immediately benefit from Imagen 2, Google’s most advanced text-to-image diffusion technology from Google DeepMind to date. With Imagen 2 on Vertex AI, Samsung can bring safe and intuitive photo-editing capabilities into users’ hands. These features can be found in Generative Edit[ Generative Edit requires a network connection and Samsung Account login. Editing with Generative Edit results in a resized photo up to 12MP. A visible watermark is overlaid on the image output upon saving in order to indicate that the image is generated by AI.

As part of this partnership, Samsung is also one of the first customers to test Gemini Ultra, Google’s most capable and largest model for highly-complex tasks. The S24 series will also use Gemini Nano, an on-device LLM delivered as part of the Android 14 operating system, the most efficient model of Gemini for on-device tasks.

“Together with Samsung, Google Cloud sees the tremendous opportunity for generative AI to create meaningful mobile experiences that stimulate and strengthen connection and communication for millions,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud. “With Gemini, Samsung’s developers can leverage Google Cloud’s world-class infrastructure, cutting-edge performance, and flexibility to deliver safe, reliable, and engaging generative AI powered applications on Samsung smartphone devices.”

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brings New Standards of Durability and Visual Clarity with Corning® Gorilla® Armor

10:26:00 PM

Samsung Electronics and Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) revealed today that the upcoming Galaxy S24 Ultra will come equipped with Corning's latest Gorilla Armor cover material. This new material provides an outstanding blend of toughness and clear visuals, resulting in a more vibrant screen even in sunlight and enhanced protection against everyday wear and tear.

“Corning’s Gorilla® Glass, together with the Galaxy S series, have driven innovation and made significant progress towards achieving greater durability,” said Kwangjin Bae, EVP and Head of the Mechanical R&D Team, Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “This partnership has made it possible for people to use our products with confidence and peace of mind.”

Corning® Gorilla® Armor is a different kind of smartphone cover material. Compared to a typical glass surface, Corning Gorilla Armor reduces reflection by up to 75%, which enhances display readability and minimizes screen reflections in almost any environment[ Performance claims for Corning® Gorilla® Armor are based on Corning's internal lab testing. Actual performance may vary.].

Corning’s new cover material optimizes durability on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. In Corning lab tests, Gorilla Armor demonstrated superior durability when compared against competitive aluminosilicate cover glasses[ Performance claims for Corning® Gorilla® Armor are based on Corning's internal lab testing. Actual performance may vary.]. To measure its exceptional scratch resistance, Corning created a new lab test — the “Scratch Bot” — to replicate micro scratches caused by day-to-day wear. On this rigorous test, Gorilla Armor showed no visible scratches and demonstrated over four times more scratch resistance than competitive aluminosilicate cover glasses.


Gorilla Armor contains an average of 25% pre-consumer recycled content, as validated by UL Solutions in accordance with UL2809-2 Environmental Claim Validation Procedure (ECVP) for Recycled Content[ Pre-consumer recycled content as defined by UL Solutions is material that has never reached the end user, having been diverted from the waste stream during a manufacturing process.].

“Gorilla Armor brings Corning’s research and engineering prowess together with Samsung’s consumer-centric design and focus on user experience,” said David Velasquez, vice president and general manager, Corning® Gorilla® Glass. “This latest innovation simultaneously addresses both the need for durability and our increasing need for better optics – bringing the mobile phone experience of the future into the present.”

The launch of Galaxy S24 Ultra phones with Gorilla Armor follows a celebratory year for Samsung and Corning. Last year marked 50 years of industry-leading partnership for the companies. Samsung and Corning first partnered in 1973 to make televisions more accessible to consumers in Korea.

This same spirit of collaboration has been carried through half a century. Corning® Gorilla® Glass has been featured on countless Samsung devices, from some of the earliest Galaxy smartphones to the most recent, including the Galaxy S23 Series, Galaxy Z Fold5, and Galaxy Z Flip5, which all use Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2. The launch of Galaxy S24 Ultra devices with Gorilla Armor continues this longstanding relationship dedicated to creating world class innovations vital to the mobile consumer electronics industry.
