Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has announced that its Honor View 10 model will get the Face Unlock feature via an OTA (over-the-air) update. The new software update has already been rolled out and is expected to be available to all users by January 24.

Honor View 10 went on sale in India as an Amazon exclusive on January 8 at a price of ₹29,999.

 

What Will Change in the New Update?

The latest update would be an extension of the already-present Face Unlock technology on Honor View 10. So far, the smartphone has Face Unlock for checking mobile notifications. This means that when you look at your phone, the device will expand the notifications, enabling you to read them.

The latest update would extent the Face Unlock feature for several other functionalities. If your eyes are closed, the screen will not unlock. When you’re looking at your unlocked phone, it will not stitch off, even if you don’t interact with the device. The phone can detect the position of your head and rotate the display.

Other features include motion detection for the front and rear camera, resolution enhancement with AI Super-Resolution Imaging, AI Zoom and the option to change the image background and effects when using the front camera.

The latest update also offers Smart Tips, which has functions such as eye comfort settings, knuckle gestures, wide aperture photos, smart assistance and QR code scanning to add contacts.

 

How to Get All These Amazing Features?

Go to Settings > System > System Update. Download and install the update.

Then go to the face recognition feature in your phone settings menu and look at the front camera. This registers your face.
