Huawei’s Honor subsidiary today launched a new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered app called PocketVision, which is designed to help those with visual impairments read documents, menus, and text using their smartphone camera. The PocketVision app, which was unveiled today at the annual IFA conference in Berlin, was developed in conjunction with Eyecoming, a Chinese social technology company specializing in visual impairments.

This figure is roughly consistent with other countries around the world, too. And it’s against that backdrop that Huawei’s Honor offshoot is launching the PocketVision app.
