With the introduction of iPhone X, Apple has brought some massive changes both in terms of design and features in the iPhone lineup. The decision of removing the home button that was present in all the previous versions, the replacement of the Touch ID with a facial recognition system dubbed Face ID, and the expansion of the display – are some parts of those massive changes.
The Face ID feature of iPhone X has received some really positive reviews from both the critics and the users. It’s quite obvious that rival OEMs are going to be quick enough to introduce similar features on their models.
According to our sources, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Samsung have already started working in collaboration with Qualcomm to use 3D Facial recognition on their flagships. If the latest reports are to be believed, then Xiaomi and OPPO, with considerable help from Qualcomm, could release flagship devices sporting this feature in the very next year.
Behind the development of the 3D Facial Recognition technology there is joint effort from Qualcomm and Wonder Vision, while Reliance Optoelectronics has supplied the sensor module. This technology is expected to enter mass production within the first quarter of the next year. Huawei is rumored to be working with Sunny Optical Technologies to develop 3D sensor solutions for its high-end models as well. Ophelia optical technology is working on the development of quite a similar technology as well. They are looking forward to cooperate with domestic manufacturers in China, in the near future.
It’s not been long since the full-screen design has turned into a trend. As it seems we are up for another revolution yet again. Experts believe that this new technology could cause considerable reduction in the use of fingerprint recognition technology. Although it seems to us that the fingerprint sensor technology isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
