According to GSMArena, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is getting an update that is 482MB in size, and includes everything from optimization for face unlock to upgrades for camera performance. It also includes bug fixes and updates security patch of the device.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro, like all other smartphones released in the past year, features support for facial recognition but it uses 3D sensing mechanism similar to that Apple’s Face ID, albeit with lower security structure. The new update is meant to make the Face Unlock recognition faster, and allow for a more secure login experience.

On the camera front, Huawei says the update is meant to make the camera even more seamless and offer “natural, authentic colors” for photos taken in the Master AI mode. This comes after Huawei was criticized for over-saturated pictures in this mode. It also brings fixes camera glitches that prevented the app from launching in “certain scenarios”, and caused “occasional discrepancies” between previews and actual snapshots.
