Huawei Mate 10 Lite, one of the most popular mid-range devices is finally getting the latest Android Oreo update, the Face Unlock feature, and AR (Augmented Reality) lens.

According to our sources, the company is testing the Android Oreo on Huawei Mate 10 Lite which means that soon the company will roll out the update for the rest of the users.

Huawei brought the first smartphones with Android Oreo last year with the introduction of its Mate series and the company promised to update the Lite variant to the latest OS as well. Looking at the image we are sure that the company will soon deliver on its promise

Huawei is not just about offering the best features in its flagship devices rather its mid-range devices have started to follow the pattern of adopting the latest tech that is making rounds in the gadget world. This fact is evident from the recent update of Face Unlock and AR lens feature in the Huawei Mate 10 Lite.

These two features are available in a beta version and have been rolled out to the majority of the users. In case you haven’t received¬†it on your device, you can check your system for any updates on the phone’s Settings.

Face Unlock as the name suggests gives the user an ability to use their face to unlock their devices. AR Lens, on the other hand, lets the user have fun with their device’s camera by choosing different background and effects/filters.

It is quite refreshing to see a company who is working towards providing the latest technology in its mid-range devices. We have already tested the device and it is undoubtedly one of our favorite mid-range devices of 2017.

You might say that facial recognition or face unlock feature is present in Samsung’s devices for quite some time; true but the company has not made any effort to perfect its controversial feature.

Samsung made headlines when its Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8’s facial recognition were easily fooled by a still photograph which speaks volume about whether we can still be excited about Samsung¬†providing Face Unlock feature in its mid-range devices.

Huawei is seemingly focused on both its flagship and midrange devices. Recently, the company has also separated its sub-brand Honor, which has quite a reputation for offering affordable mid-range devices around the world.
