Huawei Mate 10 Series gets Face Unlock upgrade

If you are one of the owners of the Huawei Mate 10 Series, and you are also waiting for a nice software update, this is it.

Over the weekend, Huawei officially rolled out the newest software updates to Mate 10 Series, introducing the Face Unlock with the highly fingerprint sensor and password.

Mate 10 Face Unlock

The Face Unlock, just like what the Huawei P20 series has,  provides users with a third unlocking method for optimal convenience. With this update, users may enable Face Unlock in the “Security and Privacy” submenu which can be found in the phone settings. When accessing the feature for the first time, users will be prompted to enroll their face by taking a clear headshot.

Two options

After creating a facial profile, users will have two (2) options to use the Face Unlock update – Direct Unlock and Slide to Unlock. Both Direct Unlock and Slide to Unlock gives users the freedom to choose the option that best suits their preferences and usage.

Direct Unlock explained

Direct Unlock allows the users to unlock the device automatically when the screen is turned on and the user’s face is recognized. It works best when the option to unlock the device is enabled, as it allows users to use the update with minimal effort, while the Slide Unlock requires the users to perform a swipe gesture to unlock the device after his/her face is recognized. It also synergizes with Smart Unlock Screen Notifications which blocks notifications from being viewed unless the device is first unlocked.

With the latest Face Unlock technology now rolled out to the Mate 10 series, you don’t need to upgrade immediately to the latest series.
