Face ID: Iphone X

As reported by DigiTimes, Oppo and Xiaomi have already taken a closer look at appropriate 3D detection components and approved designs. The two Chinese big manufacturers are said to have chosen a solution that is offered in cooperation of Qualcomm, and Truly Opto-electronics. According to DigiTimes sources, Huawei is also interested in the this technology.

But also the supplier Largan Precision, who currently has technological advantages and the necessary capacities and patents, is working in this area. The company already supplies components for the cameras in the iPhone including the devices of various Android manufacturers.

While many other devices already offer recognition of the face for identification, unlike the iPhone X these solutions are usually easy to mislead, for example with a simple photo.

The race for the newest features goes into the next round. For example, some Android manufacturers have been offering almost frameless devices for some time now.


  1. I was skeptical to say the least, but Face ID works (almost) perfect. It does however learn from its missteps and if it fails to identify you, it will add that data to its cache. I personally scanned my face normally the first time and on the second scan did it at roughly a 45 degree angle so I could lean over my phone to view notifications. As I’ve adjusted to Face ID, it has gotten faster and faster at scanning my face and it’s not something you need to wait on to open your phone. By the time you swipe up on your phone, it’s unlocked and ready to go (I seriously forget I have a password). I also really enjoy the ability to utilize Face ID for my password for other logins and the ability to open up an app directly from the lock screen without having to then enter my fingerprint/passcode.
