In February 2018, HUAWEI will launch the Mate 10 lite’s upgraded software with face detection and AR camera, delivering the same experience as Apple’s Face ID to Android.

In 2017, Apple launched a new generation of full screen devices and a new unlocking method - Face ID on iPhone X - setting a new trend in the smartphone industry. HUAWEI Mate 10 lite, which is popular in the global mobile phone market, will have an upgraded version of face detection, a full screen and four cameras to deliver this important technology to its customer.

Advanced Face Unlock Feature

HUAWEI Mate 10 lite users can unlock the phone through the device’s face recognition feature, which collects information on facial features from photographs taken by the user. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite can quickly identify facial features, whether front face, side face, high angle or low angle, quickly and completely capturing facial details and unlocking the screen within milliseconds. Users can look at the screen and unlock it even when their hands are wet or dirty.

There are slight differences in the face unlocking feature between HUAWEI and Apple. The iPhone X requires users to slide the screen after recognizing the user’s face. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is more user-friendly; users can choose their unlock mode, either by direct unlock or slide-to-unlock. Also, the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite provides intelligent display lock screen notification options, displaying notification information such as SMS, Whatsapp and Facebook. Only authorized users can see the specific content of the notification, hiding the detailed content to others to protect the user’s privacy. Each user can choose their preference according to their habits.             

Face unlock features are simple and convenient, but many people are worried about the security of this information. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite face recognition comes with three security measures:

  • The first is storage security. The face information is stored in the TEE area of Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU which provides chip-level security.
  • The second measure is to identify the algorithm is safe; the algorithm collects more than 1000 points of facial data to make sure your mobile phone only recognizes your face.
  • The third is to prevent someone else from unlocking the mobile phone while the phone owner is sleeping. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is not only easy to use, but also more secure.

Full screen brings a whole new experience

The Huawei Mate 10 lite has a giant 5.9-inch display, making it the industry's first full-screen product in the same price range. It has 83% screen-to-body ratio, which is 10% more than traditional 5.5-inch display (73% screen-to-body ratio).

In addition, traditional giant display phones usually use FHD resolution. When the screen size increases with same resolution, the pixel becomes larger, resulting in the picture becoming unclear. The HUAWEI Mate 10 lite has Full HD and FullView display (2160 * 1080) with a high PPI, so the display is much clearer.

With the FHD resolution, the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite display size has a perfect ratio of 18:9. The system interface allows for optimization and adaptation, which ensures the experience of operation and visuals.

The screen sizes of HUAWEI Mate 10 lite and Samsung Galaxy S8 are very similar.

However, the size of HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is slightly larger than S8. However, thanks to the slender body design of the 18: 9 the Mate 10 lite is easy to use with one hand. It is about 0.5mm thinner than the S8, which gives users a better grip on the phone. For the screen size, the HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is 5.9 inches - ahead of the S8 5.8 inches – and also has 83% screen-to-body ratio. Therefore, the visual display doesn’t disappoint.

In addition, the S8 uses a hyperboloid screen; which means that the border is almost hidden. It has a better view than the 2.5D screen, with the casing looking thinner. The edge of the hyperboloid screen is not very sensitive, also increasing accidental touches. The curved screen cannot protect the screen protector very well and - most importantly - it’s expensive.

HUAWEI Mate 10 lite combines the benefits of Apple's most popular face recognition feature and Samsung's full screen - and the price of HUAWEI Mate 10 lite is only half of both.
