The face unlock feature is snappy. You just need to enroll your face for the data and you are ready to go. You just need to press the power button or use the Wake Up feature when your phone is locked and it recognizes you immediately. It takes less than a second to unlock the Nova 2i.

In addition to that, the Face Unlock feature has 2 modes which are the Direct Unlock mode of Slide to Unlock. As the name implies the Direct Unlock mode will directly unlock the device. The Slide to Unlock mode allows you to take advantage of Intelligent notification display. This means that if the Nova 2i does not recognize the face, it will hide all the notification content which completely protects your privacy.

The Huawei Nova 2i Face Unlock also has three dimensions of protection:

1. Storage Security - The User's face information is stored in the Kirin Chipset's CPU Trusted Execution Environment Area which means it has chip level encryption.

2. Algorithm Security - The Nova 2i's algorithm collects 1000 points of recognition to make sure that it will only recognize your face.

3. Preventing Face Unlocking with your eyes closed - To protect your phone's content when you are asleep or unconscious.

The update is 805 MB and should be available staring today, January 31, 2018.

Just make sure you have enough battery life and good internet connectivity before updating!
