But in this era of COVID-19 pandemic, the infrared temperature sensor could detect high body temperature after being held up to people’s faces and wrists, as a sign of being ill with COVID-19. The company noted that the sensor works between temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius and 100 degrees Celsius.

It runs on Android 10 with MagicUI 10.1, supports 60Hz refresh rate in its 6.57-inch 1080p Full HD+ 20:9 LCD screen display, measures 8.9mm, and weighs 213g.

HONOR noted that it captures 40% more light than traditional sensors and can boost its ISO to 204,800. And it can record 4K/60fps video and support “AIS”, stabilization powered by the Kirin ISP, for the lack of OIS.

While the secondary 8-megapixels sensor is a telephoto camera with f/2.4, OIS, 3x optical zoom, (5x hybrid zoom, up to 30x digital zoom), and the Laser AF system for autofocus.

It arrives with a dual punch hole on the screen display, that hosts the 32-megapixels with f/2.0, and 8-megapixels 105° ultra-wide with f/2.2, both with fixed focus lenses. A 4200mAh battery keeps the phone on, with 40W fast charging tech.
