Huawei is introducing facial recognition into the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series, adding one more biometric option besides fingerprint to unlock the device.
Users can set up Face Unlock by going to the “Security & Privacy” submenu in Settings. When accessing the feature for the first time, they will have to have enroll their face by taking a headshot. After creating a facial profile, users have two options to use Face Unlock: “Direct Unlock” and “Slide to Unlock”.
The “Direct Unlock” unlocks the device automatically when the screen is turned on and the user’s face is recognized; the “Slide to Unlock” requires users to perform a swipe gesture to unlock the device after their face is recognized. Direct Unlock works best when the option to wake up the device on pick up is also enabled, as it allows users to unlock their device with minimal effort (device behavior on pick up can be adjusted from a separate Settings submenu, accessible from a shortcut in the Face Unlock submenu).
On the other hand, Slide to Unlock synergises with “Smart Lock Screen Notifications”, which, when enabled, blocks notifications from being viewed unless the device is first unlocked. Having both options available gives users the freedom to choose the option that best fits their preferences and usage habits.
Face Unlock is the latest feature to be added to the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series, and is now available in the UAE market.
Featuring the world’s first Kirin AI processor, HUAWEI FullView, as well as a dual Leica camera powered by AI, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series was well-received globally. The devices also pack a large 4000 mAh battery with AI-powered Battery Management, and support TÜV Fast-Charge Safety Certified HUAWEI SuperCharge technology.
