Honor Announces Spatial Audio Technology With Three-Dimensional Sound Effects For VR Experiences

PARIS, Sept. 2 (Benin News / EP) –

Honor announced the Spatial Audio solution, designed for headsets to produce expansive three-dimensional sound effects and provide the immersive feel needed for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences.

The company unveiled this technology at the IFA in Berlin, where it also presented its latest bet in the “smartphone” section, the new Honor 70.

In this context, the manufacturer announced the Spatial Audio solution, designed to offer surround and three-dimensional sound through the helmet thanks to the accelerometer and gyroscopes of these “wereables” to follow the movements of the user’s head.

This technology readjusts the sound field to provide them with an immersive audio experience in all use cases, whether watching movies, listening to music or playing video games.

Thanks to the algorithm, it is possible to simulate the changes in sound as it travels between the source and the ears of the user. Additionally, effects include localizing sound sources from all angles (above, below, behind and in front of the listener).

Honor also pointed out that this spatial audio supports sound externalization distance adjustment. This allows to dynamically adjust the distance of virtual sound sources from 0.15 to 10 meters.

HONOR MAGICBOOK 14 AND PAD8

Other products presented by the Chinese company include the Honor MagicBook 14 laptop, the first to integrate a system that improves battery life and offers greater energy efficiency (Honor Turbo), and the Honor Pad 8.

The first is a laptop with a 12th Gen Intel Core i5-12500H processor and a 75Wh battery, which offers up to 17 hours of standby time and supports fast charging.

On the other hand, the Honor Pad 8 is a tablet with a 12-inch 2K FullView display and an 87% screen-to-body ratio. It also supports 2000 x 1200 pixel resolution and one billion colors.

This device, which comes in a single Blue Hour (blue) colorway, packs a 7250 mAh battery and works with the Android-based Honor Magic UI 6.1 customization layer.

MAGIC OS AND DUAL FLAGSHIP

At what is considered Europe’s biggest tech show, the Chinese company unveiled its Dual Flagship strategy to introduce its upcoming foldable flagships in Europe and other parts of the world.

She also presented the MagicOS 7.0 operating system that she developed herself, designed in a cross-platform format, based on both Android and PC and IoT operating systems, and which will be available in the last quarter of 2022. .

Apart from interface changes, MagicOS 7.0 will allow users to control different devices, such as laptop, tablet, and smartphone, with a single keyboard and mouse.

Thus, users will be able to drag files between devices seamlessly, and type text on the smartphone or tablet with their laptop keyboard.

The brand’s other announcements focused on its partnership with a number of IoT consortia, including Matter and Ola, as well as extending its deal with Microsoft to make Phone Link available to international users.
