HONOR has unveiled its Gaming+ technology at Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC 2019).
Gaming+ includes a series of technology updates that increase the performance, graphics quality and image definition of mobile games on the HONOR View20. These upgrades come as HONOR has also announced an ecosystem of applications utilizing its 3D TOF camera.
Mr. George Zhao, president of HONOR, said: "HONOR is happy to announce that the latest member of HONOR's View series, the HONOR View20, has already reached the 1.5 million sales milestone. We are moving one step closer to our goal of becoming the top five smartphone brands in three years. With the revolutionary Gaming+ technology, we have further enhanced the smartphone's graphic performance, satisfying young consumers' increasing demands for better mobile gaming experience. Together with the futuristic TOF 3D camera applications, HONOR is bringing consumers the most diverse and exceptional experiences."
The HONOR View20 was unveiled in Paris last month with five distinct features, including: 48MP smartphone camera, 25MP in-screen front camera, 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset, AI Triple-Antenna Wi-Fi technology, and aurora nanotexture design. Gaming+ is upgrading the overall system with GPU efficiency upgrade, GPU load optimization, high definition and AI loading prediction technology.
Honor said that the new Gaming+ improves SOC energy efficiency by 20.34%, during 60fps gameplay of Vulkan games . The Mali-G76 GPU chipset upgrade on Kirin 980 includes transform optimization, which enhances job scheduling and parallel computing. This reduces duplicate instructions and GPU overdraws, as well as increases the data transfer speed between CPU, GPU and memory. In addition, the Kirin 980 GPU works with the AI frequency modulation scheduling technology to predict task loads by monitoring frame rate per second (fps), image quality and touchscreen inputs in real time, and identifies performance bottlenecks. For gaming, the new AI technology improves the load prediction accuracy of each frame by more than 30% compared to traditional methods, according to Honor. Another key feature, GPU optimization, enhances image quality and reduces power consumption. The upgrade also brings high definition capability to gaming, achieving better contrast, higher brightness levels and a wider color palette.
As a result of the Gaming+ upgrade, Fortnite Vulkan version can also be supported on the HONOR View20. In addition, mobile games such as QQ Speed and Arena of Valor have been optimized to support the high definition feature.
Moreover, the HONOR View20's TOF 3D camera is equipped with depth sensing, skeletal recognition and real-time motion capture capabilities, allowing users to enjoy various interactive functions such as 3D shaping, AI calorie counting, Magic AR and 3D motion-controlled gaming. Brave Jelly is the latest motion-controlled game added to the family.
