Huawei Mate 20 Pro Facial Recognition Was Easily Deceived
Huawei Mate 20 Pro

The new top of the Chinese manufacturer are the “hottest” smartphones of the moment, presenting themselves as the best smartphones ever launched by the brand. Now, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro stands out, and it’s not for the best reasons.

One of the big differences between Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 is support for 3D facial recognition. This feature was responsible for the presence of the big notch on your screen, to the detriment of the notch we see in Mate 20.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro was not only presented as the best smartphone ever built by the brand, but also as the most expensive. In addition to its triple rear camera, fantastic curved OLED screen, and delightful design. 3D facial recognition has contributed a lot to your final price.

However, according to new information published by the Pit website Android, it seems that this method of security is not after all as reliable as would be expected. This type of technology, made up of numerous sensors, has become quite popular thanks to its precision and speed.

Huawei Mate 20 Facial Recognition System was Amazingly Deceived

While they performed the usual tests to carry out their final analysis. The editors of  Android Pit have accidentally discovered this potential flaw in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro 3D facial recognition system.

As you can see in the video posted here, the smartphone is consistently deceived by a person who bears some similarities to the user. In this case, the two people have a similar hairstyle and a similar beard. Although the “naked eye” the two present several similarities. It does not look like they’re alike enough to fool a 3D system.

Huawei said that in none of the smartphone’s testing phases has this type of problem been encountered. The brand also revealed that it performed the same tests with twins. However, they confirmed that they will analyze the situation.

However, it is worth noting that this Huawei Mate 20 Pro in question is part of a shipment of pre-production units. Therefore, it is also possible that your software may not work at 100%. Or even that the unit in question may be defective.

Regardless of the reasons that led to this event, it will certainly leave users behind in the new top-tier. Especially considering its fairly high price. However, it is to be expected that the manufacturer will eventually clarify the users, revealing possible reasons for this alleged failure.
