Honor, a smartphone brand, has announced its Internet of Things (IoT) Smart-Home strategy to provide a seamless experience across a wide range of in-house devices. The company also unveiled PocketVision, an AI-enabled app which helps the visually impaired read documents and other text with ease. The new strategy and solution were unveiled at IFA 2019 in Germany. During the event, Honor’s latest flagship smartphone, the Honor 20 Pro also received new updates including a software upgrade to the new EMUI 10 and the option of a new color — Icelandic Frost.
