Honor release phone with built-in fever thermometer
Chinese mobile manufacturer Honor is now releasing the Honor Play 4 Pro model, which is available with a built-in sensor that can take the fever on the mobile user.
It’s a infrared sensor that has the ability to measure the user’s temperature if the phone is placed against the user’s forehead as shown in the picture above. However, the sensor can be used for anything other than a fever thermometer as it should be able to measure the temperature from -20 up to 100 degrees centigrade with an accuracy of one tenth of a degree.
Incidentally, the phone is equipped with a screen that is over 6.57 inches in size which has a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The Honor Play 4 Pro version runs a HiSilicon Kirin 990 processor and has 5G support.
The Honor Play 4 Pro with the temperature sensor will cost 2999 yuan, which corresponds to about SEK 3900. The phone can also be obtained without the IR sensor, which measures temperature and then costs 2899 yuan, which makes it about a hundred cheaper than the model with the sensor.
Whether Honor will release the Honor Play 4 Pro outside of China is yet to be announced however.
