As seen in the video, the Play 4 is able to scan a subject's temperature - be it a person or an inanimate object - by placing the rear sensor close to it. Few hours before the launch, Honor has confirmed some key features that will be available on the Play4 series.

It is likely to feature a quad-camera setup having a 64 MP main shooter, an 8 MP secondary snapper, and two 2 MP modules. It will be equipped with 40W fast-charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Play 4 Pro will run on Android 10 and have a 4,500 mAh battery.

The Honor Play 4 and Play 4 Pro will be officially unveiled tomorrow, but one of the promo videos snuck out a day early. It goes without saying that this innovation is influenced by concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the most common preventative measures, of course, is to regularly measure body temperatures in public places such as restaurants and malls, or even at home. Honor has stated the temperature will be measured by the phone's infrared camera present on the back panel.

Honor Play series Product Manager Wei Xiaolong Raul had recently revealed that the body temperature sensor on the Play4 Pro cannot only measure the body temperature of people and animals, but also it can measure the temperature of objects. A bit of research online reveals that certain types of IR sensors can be used to measure temperatures with no contact, which could be ideal in light of current affairs.
