Someone doesn’t need to root around in your phone to invade your privacy. Just looking at your phone while a sensitive notification comes in can give someone information that you don’t want to be made public. Honor is looking to address that in the Honor Magic Phone with a feature called “FaceCode Intelligent Recognition,” that checks to see who’s looking at the phone before displaying notifications.

Granted, I don’t know how widespread this issue is nor do I know how well the feature will work (and it could go disastrously wrong and never show you your notifications), but if the feature works well it’s an easy way to combat a potential privacy leak.

The Honor Magic Phone is only coming to China. It’ll be equipped with a 5-inch AMOLED screen, a 12-megapixel dual-lens camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 6.0, a Huawei-Kirin 950 processor, a 2,900mAh battery, 64GB of internal storage, 4GB RAM, a fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, and a phone status indicator.

The phone comes in either porcelain white or golden black, whatever that is. Whatever that is.
