Today, the Face Unlock update is officially available for the honor 7X smartphone, the honor 9 lite is also getting the update as well but will only have it on 3 April onwards via over-the-air (OTA) update.

According to honor Malaysia, its Face Unlock feature is capable of recording more than 1000 data points on your face and they also want you to know that it can be used to hide incoming notifications on the lock screen, covering your privacy. This can be done in the settings and if you want, the messages can only be shown when you face is recognised. Pretty cool, huh?

To recap the tech-specs, the honor 7X features a 5.93-inch FullView display with a near bezel-less screen design, 4GB + 64GB memory, a dual rear 16MP + 2MP camera, a badass 3340mAh battery and more. One of our writers quite enjoyed using the phone, so check out the review here.

Meanwhile, we are still testing out the honor 9 Lite so stay tuned for that review at TechNave.com.
