HONOR announced that its upcoming HONOR Magic6 will be powered by the revolutionary Snapdragon® 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform and showcased the power of on-device large language model (LLM) with a parameter size of seven billion, as revealed at the Snapdragon Summit 2023 in Hawaii. The collaboration between HONOR and Qualcomm Technologies leverages the expertise of both companies to support on-device LLM and create a human-centric ecosystem that enables seamless smart interactions across multiple devices. At the event, HONOR also showcased several enhanced MagicRing connectivity features to highlight the collaborative efforts between the two companies. 

Different from cloud LLMs, which are trained with publicly-accessible datasets, HONOR’s on-device LLM draws from its understanding of the device’s user to provide personalized services according to their preferences. To develop an on-device LLM that can be utilized for the benefit of everyday consumers, HONOR and Qualcomm Technologies worked together with a focus on three key areas: performance, efficiency and user privacy. The joint efforts resulted in optimizations that allow the mobile platform to take advantage of the LLM effectively without drawing an outsized amount of power, as well as data protection that ensures data remains safe and secure on the device.

HONOR Magic6 to Feature On-device LLM Powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

Featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform, the HONOR Magic6 will be powered by an on-device LLM with seven billion parameters to usher in a new era of generative AI. Illustrating the potential of its AI capabilities, HONOR also showcased an AI video creation demo during its presentation. By providing command prompts to the on-device smart voice assistant YOYO, users can easily create short videos featuring photos and footage stored on their devices. Templates, themes and music of the generated videos can also be customized with additional prompts for personalized results. 

At Snapdragon Summit 2023, HONOR also demonstrated an eye-tracking based multimodal interaction called Magic Capsule, as well as three key features of MagicRing: Connected Camera, Connected Input and multi-device screen sharing.  Leveraging the latest Snapdragon Seamless technology, MagicRing allows for a greater variety of data to be seamlessly exchanged between devices while being stabler and more power efficient than ever.

Moving forward, HONOR will remain open to collaborating with global partners as it continues to cultivate an ecosystem of on-device AI technology, while contributing to the wider industry with human-centric innovation for an intelligent future.
