The coronavirus pandemic is affecting everyone and every aspect of life. As humans adjust to wearing masks in public, following social distancing norms, and using thermal scanners to allow entry— some say that we are now living in the new normal, which seems all the more believable with the launch a smartphone that can measure the body temperature.

Honor recently launched the Honor Play 4 and the Honor Play 4 Pro in China that come with the usual set of specifications. However, the Pro variant of the lineup features a special infrared temperature sensor. This means the phone can measure the temperatures of objects, animals, and people. Honor claims that the IR temperature sensor on the Honor Play 4 Pro has a measurement range of -20 to 100 degrees centigrade.

This range is more than enough to cover the human body’s range of potential temperature and check for fever. That means the Honor 4 Play could be used to check body temperature instead of a thermal scanner. Notably, high-fever is one of the symptoms of Covid-19.
