Huawei Nova 2i Face Unlock

The Huawei Nova 2i just got better. The midrange device added a face unlock feature with the latest update.

The Huawei Nova 2i face ID recognition has three levels of protection — 1) Storage Security where Consumers’ face information are stored in the Kirin chipset’s CPU TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) area, which achieves chip-level security; 2) Algorithm Security which means that the algorithm collects more than 1000 points of face information to make your phone only recognize your face; and 3) To prevent being unlocked when your eyes are closed, which ensures that someone can’t unlock your phone while you’re sleeping.

To upgrade, just go to Settings> System Update on your Huawei Nova 2i. Then, tap on three-dots located on the upper right corner, and choose Download latest full package.
