If you were watching the iPhone event earlier this month you might recall that when the time came for a demo of the iPhone X’s Face ID facial recognition feature, things didn’t go as planned. Face ID failed on the primary demo device twice so the backup had to be used. Face ID worked perfectly fine on the backup but the damage was done, so to speak. Huawei has taken a jab at Apple in its latest teaser which hypes up the release of its new flagship smartphone.

Apple has gone to great lengths to explain that the apparent Face ID fail wasn’t actually a fail to begin with. What’s done is done, though. It can give all of the explanations that it wants. Most people will just carry on with that memory of Face ID not working the first time around.

Huawei has posted a short video on its official Facebook page. The video makes subtle fun of the Face ID gaffe at the iPhone event earlier this month. It ends by claiming that the “real AI smartphone” will be unveiled on October 16th.

Reports suggest that Huawei will unveil the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro on October 16th. The flagship handsets will be powered by Huawei’s Kirin 970 chipset. They will also have built-in artificial intelligence computing capabilities.

More information about the features and specifications will be confirmed by Huawei next month.
