Honor’s latest flagship gets a new Party mode which is essentially an NFC feature that allows you to connect multiple phones with each other so as to play a song in synchronization with boosted volume. The update also includes enhancements in camera and usage of the fingerprint scanner.
Honor 10 was unveiled in India last month with dual AI cameras and an under-glass fingerprint reader. Having claimed to have sold over million units of its flagship, Honor is now seeding an update to the Honor 10 with a slew of enhancements and a Party Mode which is expected to be rolled out to all devices in the coming weeks.
Shifting the build number of the firmware to COL-L29 126.96.36.199, the highlight of the update is the new Party Mode feature which allows users to connect several devices through NFC to enable playing the same song together. The feature will not only be able to boost the audio volume but gives each user the ability to change tracks and play the same audio simultaneously. Party Mode is currently available for the Honor 10 as well as the Honor View 10.
In terms of biometrics, the update now enhances the already appreciated fingerprint scanner on the Honor 10 device. The Honor phone will now notify how compatible the current set of fingerprints are and prompt whether you must replace them if necessary or whether it’ll be able to detect your fingerprint when placed at a certain angle.
As far as imaging is concerned, the default camera app on the Honor 10 now displays a text which informs you which AI effect the system when clicking pictures through the device’s scene recognition mode. Now you’ll know the kind of effect that is being applied when the dual camera on the Honor 10 uses AI.
The latest update also comes with performance optimizations, several bugs and stability fixes and pushes the May 2018 security patch to the Honor 10. There’s a new live wallpaper as well as a new theme and all of this will be rolled within the next few weeks.
