The Mate 20 Pro features a very sophisticated 3D face sensing tech that consists of a dot projector, an RGB camera, a floodlight illuminator and an IR blaster. All this combine to scan and map your face allowing you to secure the device using your face as a password. Huawei claims that its 3D facial recognition is 100% better than the iPhone X — but is it? Recently, a couple of inquisitive gentlemen in Germany discovered a flaw in the Mate 20 Pro’s face unlocking feature. Here’s what happened…

Celcom prepaid and postpaid users take note. If you’re experiencing problems with voice services on your device for the past few hours, don’t worry because you are not alone.
If you’ve missed last week’s sale on the hot-selling honor 8X, you are in luck because honor has restocked the great value for money device, and it is available for purchase today (19th October 2018).

The firmware makes its debut with the release of the latest Mate 20 series, and now honor users can experience the new software as well.

Do take note of that.
When we think of robots, we think of the future, of how things will be better and easier when we have obedient, humanoid servants that will not need food, will not tire and will not say no to us. While we’re still some ways away from that future but…we’re getting there.
Having said that, robotics has come a very long way since the likes of Aibo and Asimo, and it has advanced tremendously in the past couple of years. Boston Dynamics has been at the forefront of robotics and have made a number of significant progress since it started developing autonomous robots.
The first time we saw a phone with a hidden camera was when vivo released a concept device called the Apex. That concept then became the vivo NEX, which was the first full all-display device. The front part was all screen, no notch, no speaker grill. To make that possible vivo had to house the front-facing camera in a very unique way. It was hidden inside the top part of the phone and popped up automatically when you needed to use it. The first time we saw the hidden camera mechanism in action, it was the best thing ever.
Another month, another Nokia device. It was just a month ago when HMD Global launched their mid-range duo — the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus — for the Malaysian market. And now, they’ve released yet another new device, the Nokia X7 specifically for China, and it our experience, it will probably become the Nokia 7.1 Plus when it launches globally.
Kanye West (or “Ye” as he likes to be addressed these days) is no stranger to the limelight but most of the time it is for all the weirdest reasons — the latest being his proposal for a plane he calls the “iPlane”. He revealed his wonderful avionic proposal during a visit to the White House last week with President Donald Trump as the main audience amongst discussions about access to job opportunities for former convicts.
The iPlane, while interesting, is not the most notable thing the Kanye West White House visit revealed. What’s even more interesting is the password Ye uses for his iPhone.
