Huawei has patented a bizarre-looking smartphone that can use its cameras to create a 3D scan of your face. Supposedly, the smartphone would use the 3D technology to detect blemishes, pores and to help people improve their skin health.

LetsGoDigital has discovered a patent filed by Huawei for a smartphone with an unusual design. Described as being capable of accurately measuring faces, the smartphone can evaluate skin health from a portrait shot or a selfie taken with its rear-facing cameras, as LetsGoDigital has shown with its concept images.

Apparently, the smartphone uses its triple rear-facing cameras to measure the depth and size of someone's pores. However, it would remain to be seen how accurate these estimations were. Once analysed, the smartphone would notify people of how they could improve their skin health. Alternatively, you could send the smartphone's findings to someone else by email or a messaging service.

One design, considered by LetsGoDigital to be the most exciting, shows the cameras surrounding a circular display. Undoubtedly, the patented design resembles a more interactive Mate 40 Pro, which Huawei released in November 2020. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that Huawei will release this design any time soon. Still, the company has pioneered new health features of late, like with the Watch D.
