At IFA 2019 some special edition and other interesting things have been announced of the Honor 20 Pro and Honor Band 5 especially the Pocketvision app for the visually impaired.
During launch Honor 20 Pro was available in two colors: Phantom Blue and Phantom Black but now the company is adding a third color to the fray, named “Icelandic Frost.” Honor says this color is the “World’s First Dynamic Holographic Design.”
The next highlight is its new ‘PocketVision’ AI-powered app making it much easier for the visually impaired to read. This app aims to help people read documents, menus, and other hard to read texts.
PocketVision app features three dedicated modes; Text-to-Speech Mode, Zoom-In Mode, Negative Image Mode. The Text-to-Speech Mode allows users to convert pictures to text faster and more accurately and also narrates the text from books, documents, menus, and more.
Zoom-In Mode enables users to zoom into text using the volume buttons on their device using quad-camera lens and telephoto lens. Lastly, Negative Image Mode provides a range of color filters, making it more legible for people who struggle to see certain colors.

The Honor Band 5 is now available from €29.99 ($33) in the UK, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, and other markets. In the UK, it can be purchased through O2, Argos, and Asda.
