On theiPhone X, Apple has abandoned the Touch ID in favor of facial recognition to unlock the phone. In a short video, Huawei has teased its next flagship smartphone, the Mat 10, making fun of Face ID from the Cupertino company.
This year, Apple is offering a brand new model to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its range of smartphones. For the first time in its history, the iPhone X adopts an OLED screen. The American brand has chosen to integrate a slab occupying almost the entire surface of the game. To do this, the borders were reduced to the maximum, and the Home button (which also served as a Touch ID fingerprint sensor) was removed. Unlocking the phone is done through facial recognition.
The iPhone X was unveiled to the world during the keynote on September 12. During the presentation, the demonstration of the Face ID functionality was not conclusive the first time. A fact which obviously has not escaped competition. Huawei thus launched a small spade to Apple, in a video shared on Facebook. It also turns out to be a teaser for the Chinese brand. The images show an iPhone screen in the process of facial recognition. The face that appears is that of a clown, and the Face ID fails. Then the hashtag #TheRealAIPhone (or ” the real AI phone »In French) appears.
Huawei obviously boasts its next high-end smartphone, the Mate 10. Its presentation is scheduled for October 16.
