Huawei Mate 50 Pro adds face mask recognition feature
Huawei Mate 50 series has been continuously receiving new features with new software updates. Recently, Huawei has added face mask support for the Mate 50 Pro via a new firmware rollout.
HarmonyOS 22.214.171.124 software version has been rolling out for the Mate 50 Pro users that brings face mask recognition support.
According to the description of this feature, face recognition works accurately when the face is not covered by anything. While wearing a mask, the feature will allow the device to unlock the phone with eye scanning. You just need to look at the Huawei Mate 50 Pro screen to enable the face mask recognition process.
The feature is available in settings and if the user is opt-in to the feature, you just have to tap the slider and give your consent.
Due to the pandemic, most peoples wear masks mostly in outdoor conditions. In that case, they may require the phone’s feature to make a payment or for other use cases. Hence, the phone’s support for facial authentication could get denied but with a such new feature, you won’t have to remove the mask.
Apple has already installed face mask support for face id in all of its iPhone devices since last year.
This version of HarmonyOS 3.0 brings optimizations for system stability in certain situations to improve the phone’s inner performance for a better user experience.
Yesterday, we noted HarmonyOS 126.96.36.199, which improved camera shooting effects, adds support for 3D avatar, and also brings system senior mode for the users.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro comes with a wide front notch that resembles the Mate 20 Pro. However, the notch contains various sensors face facial security purposes.
The front module includes a laser sensor, ToF 3D depth camera, 13MP selfie camera with ultra-wide angle capability, proximity sensor, light sensor, and flood illuminator. these all combine a powerful face id system that is secured and reliable.

It’s worth mentioning that the folding device we are talking about is not from Huawei. Although it’s not confirmed, some fans depict that this could be the impending Honor Magic V2. But, we still require an official statement on this matter.
