Software and hardware of facial recognition implemented by Apple in their smartphones, for all his faults is still out of competition at the level of provided protection, convinced colleagues from the publication AndroidPit. This, according to them, proves the example of Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which, despite the presence of three-dimensional scanning system includes an infrared camera and laser rangefinder, can be duped by a human with similar appearance.

Unlike iPhone X, which is unable to distinguish from each other twins, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is even a remote similarity between users. As shown in the experiment AndroidPit, the flagship smartphone Huawei “clings” on one or two things in common and have not noticed other differences. As such features there may be glasses, a moustache or a beard. And eye shape, hair color, cheekbones, and other features of the face are completely ignored by the scanning system from Huawei, contrary to the sensor depth.
