Honor Play 4 Pro can take you temperature

The infrared sensor can read temperatures

Last updated:

Should you get within two metres of someone with your Huawei Honor Play 4 Pro and they start clearing their throat, slap your phone on their forehead to find out if it’s just a tickle or something more serious.

The smartphone’s capabilities are shown off in a Weibo video, accurately documenting the temperature of people’s faces, kittens, and ice creams. The infrared sensor can read temperatures from -20°C (-4°F) to 100°C (212°F), meaning you’re not restricted to sticking it onto members of your household.

As per a video posted on Weibo, the body temperature measurement feature works when the Honor Play 4 Pro’s IR camera is placed on someone’s forehead or hands. The body temperature will then be displayed through an app. The full functionality of the feature is not clear yet.

The Honor Play 4 Pro is powered by flagship Kirin 990 processor, which also powers the Huawei Mate 30 series and the Honor 30 series of smartphones. The Honor Play 4 Pro features a 6.57-inch 1080p display, 4200mAh battery, and 40W fast charging support.

The phone is 5G capable and packs a dual-camera setup at the back consisting of a 40MP primary sensor and a zoom camera.

Currently, the Honor Play 4 Pro is only available in China, coming in at 2,999 yuan which is around £334, and will go on sale in China on June 12.
