To produce the Magic 4 Pro, Honor used artificial intelligence

The Magic 4 Pro unveiled in mid-May is the new very high-end Honor, which has not skimped on investments to produce the smartphone. Artificial intelligence played a big role in the design and then the large-scale manufacturing of the device.

The Magic 4 Pro is undoubtedly one of the best smartphones of 2022. The technical data sheet underlines the high-end aspect of the device: 6.8-inch OLED screen (460 ppi), Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 8 GB of RAM , 256 GB of storage, three cameras on the back (ultra wide-angle, telephoto and 50-megapixel wide-angle), 12-megapixel photo sensor on the front, 4,600 mAh battery… In short, we get what we pay for and it is better because the terminal costs 1,099 €!

All this technology required a lot of work from Honor, which revealed some of its manufacturing methods. The Magic 4 Pro was designed within the Honor Industrial Park which has been operational since last September. This is the first factory self-financed by the brand, it makes research and development engineers work together with the manufacturing teams.

It is thanks to this joint work that Honor was able to develop AI Privacy Call technology, which minimizes sound leakage during voice calls. Positioning the call speaker ever higher in the chassis of smartphones saves display surface, but the closer this component is placed to the edge, the more pronounced the sound leaks.

To remedy this problem, Honor has developed the first intelligent dual sound emission unit, by combining piezoelectric ceramics mounted directly on the screen. This technology gives good results, but the production phase required extremely precise equipment. Three months of work were needed to create an automated assembly tool using computer vision and optimized algorithms to achieve an accuracy of 0.01mm and a yield of 99.99%.

Overall, artificial intelligence has infused everywhere in the industrial park, where 75% of its production line is automated.
