Well, Apart from the AI there are two other features i.e The WideScreen sensor which uses the sensor in the frame and the infrared sensor in the selfie camera to turn the screen on when you pick up the phone. So, when the phone is put down or in the pocket, the screen automatically turns off.
And the next feature, when notifications arrive, the FaceCode Intelligent feature comes into action, which will only show notifications after it detects pre-registered faces.
