Huawei Mate 30 : Enable Air Gestures

Last updated:

Huawei unveiled its new Huawei Mate 30 series of smartphones last week, introducing Huawei’s latest Kirin processor and a complex quad-lens camera system that’s contained in a new, circular enclosure.

The smartphones are powered by Huawei’s most powerful system on chip (SoC) – Kirin 990 and Kirin 990 (5G) processed with 7nm FinFET Plus EUV technology combined for faster processing and the new DaVinci Neural Processing.

One of the innovative features that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro brings is Air Gestures, which allow users to take screenshots and scroll without actually touching the device.

The front camera, 3D Depth Sensing Camera and Gesture Sensor are inducted together to identify your facial features and detect the movement of your hands. With this real-time information received in the Tiny-Core NPU, many commands such as unlocking, slide-changing, and screenshots can be executed swiftly when you look at the screen or simply swipe your hand.

  1. Unlock your phone screen.
  2. Launch Settings.
  3. Select Accessibility features and then Shortcuts and Gestures.
  4. Tap on Air Gestures.
