The facial recognition is one of the most attractive features of the new Apple phone. A measure that has come thanks to the evolution of the smartphone to make them as safe as possible. But facial recognition is not perfect and Xiaomi would already work on 3D facial recognition to include it in its next flagship, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
Facial recognition is a simple state security system and Apple’s bet for its iPhone 8. But it is not perfect and has some problems. For example, if you show a photo of the user you could unlock the phone even if you were not the user, which makes it a very unsafe method.
Xiaomi will use 3D facial recognition
The 3D facial recognition eliminate this defect and there would be unblocking a single image because besides Reconco face reconcoería the height, width or depth of the face of the person, for example, increasing the security of facial recognition and making it a Very reliable method.
To get Xiaomi 3D facial recognition, according to a new rumor, would join Apple and Qualcomm and would have it ready for the last quarter of this year. That is, Xiaomi would have 3D facial recognition ready for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
Unbeatable phones with a huge screen are becoming more frequent and the fingerprint under the screen is not an easy technology to include in smartphones (as we have seen in the case of Samsung or Apple). The phones have to move the fingerprint sensor to the rear and are not always comfortable so 3D facial recognition could become the ideal alternative for phone manufacturers, regardless of the fingerprint reader.
According to CINNO Research, the market share of smartphones with a large screen (virtually borderless) is 6% in 2017 but will be up to 50% in 2018 and up to 93% in 2021. 3D facial recognition would help to dispense with the reader. Fingerprints that most phones now use.
At the moment we do not know much more in depth about the functions of 3D facial recognition except that a photograph can not be used and that the security will be better than the one we know until now. For now, we will have to wait to see how Xiaomi uses it, which is expected to do so in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, a mobile that will arrive before the end of the year with a huge screen.
