In October last year, Huawei launched its first-ever slider phone called the Honor Magic 2. At the launched, the company had promised another variant which will sport a 3D scanner. Huawei has finally launched the variant in China which is named the Honor Magic 2 3D. The name of the smartphone gives us an insight on what to expect from the device. Well, the mobile phones supports 3D structured light sensor for face unlock. This new ‘structured light’ sensor is similar to a Lidar (light detection and ranging) sensor.
The 3D camera sensor on this smartphone will be able to detect 10,000 facial points for authentication. It will be one of the face unlock mobile phones to offer maximum security. Along with unlocking the smartphone, this new 3D face unlock sensor is also designed to help unlock apps with the help of facial recognition. As of now, it is not known if the smartphone will make its appearance in India.
