Today, Huawei held the 2020 Huawei annual flagship new product launch conference in Shanghai. At this event, it publicly demonstrated the Huawei Mate 40 series, the Huawei Mate 30E and other products. However, there was one smartphone that caught visitors’ eyes first. As you can see in the photos provided by a Weibo blogger, Huawei was using the newly announced Huawei Mate 40 RS as a thermometer to check the body temperature of the guests during the security check.
Judging from the pictures shared by the blogger, Huawei’s security check lady holds the Huawei Mate 40 RS and measures the body temperature of the guests in real time through the built-in rear infrared temperature measurement module to prevent possible dangers.
However, our readers shouldn’t be surprised much. We mean at the original launch event, we introduced that the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design Collection Edition comes with an infrared temperature sensor. This variant has almost the same features as the basic variant. But the special sensor inside can detect temperatures of minus 20-100°C. The international version of the 12GB+512GB model costs 2,295 euros.
How Does The Huawei Mate 40 RS Measure Temperature?
The principle of the infrared temperature measurement function of the Huawei Mate 40 RS is the following. It has an infrared sensor to the rear lens module. And this sensor can determine the body temperature of the measured object by receiving infrared energy. It can also measure the temperature of other objects or other entities.
In fact, we have heard about this much earlier of its release. That time, As a Weibo tipster said, Huawei’s public testing platform today released an app called ‘Thermometer’. The app introduction mentioned that it only supports the Mate 40 RS Porsche Design. The internal model code of the product is KUL-AN10.
This application can be used to measure the temperature of objects and human bodies, mark temperature measurement objects, view temperature measurement records, etc. According to the description of the thermometer application, users can align the device’s sensor position with the temperature measurement object, and align the device with an unobstructed, no heat source within 50 cm of the air area. Place the device at a distance of 1-3 cm from the measured object. Then, click ‘Temperature measurement’ and hold it firmly until it vibrates. You can also use the volume up key or volume down key to start temperature measurement.
