While fixed temperature-taking solutions are being installed at the entryways of heavily trafficked venues, Huawei is introducing a highly portable solution with the new Huawei Honor Play 4 smartphone. The smartphone certainly is a reflection of post-pandemic life, as it includes an infrared temperature sensor right within its rear-facing camera block. With this setup, a smartphone user can hold the phone up to someone's forehead and check to see if they might have a fever.
The smartphone with the integrated functional thermometer comes in at $420 and it makes the most of technology that's already within phones for the most part, as popular smartphones use infrared beams. Although the average person may now be used to carrying a protective mask, they are less likely to have a thermometer on hand, and this smartphone offers an on-the-go solution.
