Apple is the global leader in the smartphone industry and everyone knows that whether it launches a single or a couple of phones per year, it always comes with an innovative unique feature in it which is further copied or we can say inspired and then is given in the android phones too, whether we talk about introducing fingerprint technology or removal of headphone jack. Now the time is changing and trend is coming of bezel less phones due to which the brands are trying new things to fulfill its need. Apple, this year has introduced their first Bezel Less phone – The IPhone X or you can write IPhone 10 in which it has removed the second common feature i.e. Fingerprint sensor after removing the Headphone jack last year and has replaced it with Facial Recognition Technology which Apple calls FACE ID. Now the question which is arising in the market that Will Apple Face ID i.e. Facial recognition replace Fingerprint Sensor in Android Phones too?
Talking about the technology, till now nobody has used it in real usage as Iphone X is not launched yet but Face ID was failed in the demonstration at the event. Many people mock and make fun of Apple for that incident but later on Apple clarified about the incident happened. Here what Apple said about that incident:
“The demo phone was handled many a times by different people before reaching on the stage in the hands of Craig Federighi. People didn’t realise that Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a lot of times, as it was designed to only recognise the Craig face , IPhone X does what it was designed to, it asked for the passcode.”
As a normal viewer watching live event on Youtube, Everyone will assume the same what Trollers assume but the Apple clarification cool down the situation till the arrival of it in the market. But everyone know that Apple never plays with the features. It only launch a new technology when it is working in a perfect condition, so does the demo proved.
How Face Recognition Works in the IPhone?
Since Face ID is a new technology and everyone is in Craze about how it works.Lets learn about it in a quick way.
Everything is in this black part on the front side of the IPhone X, which Apple calls True Depth Camera System.
The four things which makes this system is Infrared Camera, Flood Illuminator, Dot Projector, Front Camera. These four things work together to make this system works.
Firstly, Everytime you glance at your IPhone X, it detects your face with the flood Illuminator. The Infrared Camera takes the IR image, then the Dot Projector projects over 30,000 invisible IR dots on your face. Then the IPhone uses the IR image in the dot pattern and then push them through neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and then it checks the mathemetical model against the one that is stored which you had set up earlier to see if it match and unlock the Phone if it matches. It works in night also and works in real time. The whole process will work in a mini second and is a invisible work.
Now even if you will change your hairstyle or grow beard or wear a Hat, it will recognise you – Apple claims. Sounds Interesting NA ? Tell us in the comment section below how much you are impressed with this technology.
Now coming back to the question for which we all are reading this all that Will Apple Face ID i.e. Facial recognition replace Fingerprint Sensor in Android Phones too?
Going few months back, QualComm introduced under the display fingerprint sensor technology with VIVO (Mobile Brand) which will arrive in the market next year due to which everybody was expecting Apple to launch the same in the IPhone 8 but the thinking of Apple was out of the box. So, there is nothing like QualComm will dump its technology to copy apple Face ID. Coming to the Rumours which are not less than truth, QualComm is working on both the technologies now for android. Face ID for high end flagship phones and under the display Fingerprint for Mid range phones. Many other Companies are also working to make it for android but QualComm is the most trustable company in the android market so the major brands will tie up with only QualComm for this technology but As the reports say, it will take time. Android will be able to adopt this technology in the 2018 – 19 only if Apple IPhone X succeed.
Talking about the real time, Now a days almost every phone above 100$ has fingerprint sensor in it and people are also used to it. So, it will be very difficult to remove the fingerprint sensor permanently now in 2017 but high End Phones will surely do it after the IPhone X launch. We also think that fingerprint will be replaced later on as new technologies are coming and people will get used to them in the coming future.
What do you think guyz about it ? There are two questions for you.
- How much you are impressed with the FACE ID technology ?
- Will Apple Face ID i.e. Facial recognition replace Fingerprint Sensor in Android Phones too?
