Files Anywhere Door – Magic Portal

Based on the MagicLM AI model, MagicOS 8.0 features the Files Anywhere Door – also known as Magic Portal. It is a smart shortcut feature that enables you to switch and access apps or services directly via simple swipe gestures.

Users can long-press on the text, images, files, videos, and other media content to drag them from one place to another and store them accordingly. You can store purchase details, passwords, and vital inputs to use them quickly when needed. Magic Portal will support 100+ apps from different categories.

Magic Lock Screen and UI

Honor has keenly focused on the user interface and said that MagicOS 8.0 has an Intent-based UI (IUI). It features new fonts, themes, gestures, images, and eye movements to understand a user’s intent and offer services according to it.

Besides, the Magic Lock Screen adds a new definition to lock screen operations. You can pick your favorite styles, themes, or wallpapers and can edit the lock interface by simply pinching it with two fingers.

Users can even set the family picture on the lock screen and based on the color matching algorithm, the lock screen will auto-generate a poster-level image. Thus, you get a personalized lock screen and can even adjust blur effects, lighting, and more.
