Huawei Eyes on Display feature is amazing technology
With the launch of each Huawei flagship, the company introduces new technologies that favor consumers and try to give them the best possible user experience. Eyes on Display (EOD) is such a feature that doesn’t only make your user experience better but also provides you with a new kind of interactiveness for your Huawei smartphone.
Huawei Eyes on Display was first introduced with EMUI 11 during the launch of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro in 2020. The company has developed this feature around the Gesture and Depth sensors that are built inside the smartphone’s front side large pill shape notch.
Behind the scene, the Eyes on Display feature is powered by the Huawei Kirin 9000‘s NPU unit and the Da Vinci NPU architecture that keeps it steady and notes the perfect movement of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro user.
How it works:
It’s simple, whenever a user looks at the screen or comes into the range of the sensor, the display enables an always-on display theme. The phone will keep the always-on display enabled as long as you are looking toward the direction or the display of the phone.
On the flip side, the display quickly disables the screen, once you move your face out. This is quite a useful and easy-to-use feature that helps to reduce the use of battery and save it even further.
Notably and intelligently, the feature won’t show activity when you put your palm in front of the sensor. Instead, it detects movements of the face or eyes perfectly, which seems unbelievable in smartphone technologies.
Even the iPhone can not do that, ahm…. iPhone doesn’t come with Always on Display.
Ok, getting back to the topic.
How to enable:
Huawei Mate 40 Pro series consumers would find this feature enabled by default but it can be accessed by going into Settings > Home screen & wallpaper > then tap on Display mode and selecting Smart for Eyes on display feature.
Use on other phones:
Since the launch of the Huawei Mate 40 series, Huawei has not released a new model in the lineup due to some supply chain issues. However, we’re awaiting the next Mate series flagship – The Huawei Mate 50 series, which could launch in the month of August. Read more about this story in the article linked below.
