Huawei Mate10 lite launches new features for enhanced phone usability

Huawei Mate10 lite has introduced two tailor-made software upgrades to device users, designed to bring more features, functionality and fun to the mobile experience. The new features include a face unlock option, as well as an augmented reality (AR) lens, providing entertaining and colorful backgrounds and effects. The new features will be available gradually starting from Feb. 9, and by Feb 23 will be available to all users.
The Huawei face unlock option is a safe and convenient way to interact with the Mate10 lite, providing one more option besides fingerprint to unlock the device. Using advanced facial recognition software, the option has enhanced security settings, recording more than 1,000 data points on the face to prevent photos and videos of the face being used to unlock the phone. This data is stored within the Kirin Processor’s Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to ensure maximum security. In addition, the setting only works when eyes are open. The exceptionally fast unlock speed now takes only 800 milliseconds to unlock the device.
In addition, the upgraded software version integrates a full augmented reality (AR) lens selfie feature. Now, users can be more creative with their selfies and photos, with options ranging from self-created backgrounds, real-life landmark backgrounds, super-imposed images and special effects.
Huawei claimed the new Mate10 lite upgrade is ideal for those who want to enjoy the next innovation in advanced facial recognition software, bringing to life a new level of fun with photographs and the overall mobile experience.
The smartphone is available for purchase in Prestige Gold, Graphite Black and Aurora Blue at a price of SR1,199 ($320).

Saudi law team gets right verdict in Kuwait ‘trial’

A team from Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s law department recently finished second in an Arabic moot court competition held at Kuwait International Law School.
The academic competition has teams of students from different law schools acting as advocates, and making written and spoken arguments to simulate a criminal law case.
Arabic moot court competitions have been hosted annually by one of the Arab universities in the region for the past five years. Thirteen teams representing different Arab countries took part in the Kuwait contest.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s major competencies include communication in both English and Arabic in professional and social situations; the ability to use modern technologies to acquire information, solve problems and produce planned results; the ability to reason logically and creatively to make informed and responsible decisions; the ability to perform professional responsibilities effectively in both local and international contexts; and being able to work effectively with others to accomplish tasks and achieve group goals.
The core competencies are a required part of curriculum for all students during their first two years in the college program. These competencies are evident on and off campus through student interaction with faculty, staff and others. This enables students to be successful in their chosen field and to contribute to the development of their communities.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University, located in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest private universities in the Kingdom.
The university aims at educating the “whole” person; it recognizes that success in the world depends not only on knowledge of a specific academic discipline, but also on a broader set of skill and abilities.
