Pretend surprise: Huawei is already working on a similar system – or, by its own, 10x higher – than Face ID

Let's not try to cover the sun with a sieve.

In recent years, the rule we have seen in the vast and daunting world of smartphones is as follows: Some Android maker comes up with an interesting feature sometimes completely ready, sometimes needing some tweaking. The other manufacturers of the robot then follow the pioneer and put the feature in their products. Finally, Apple is the last to follow the trend. It was like that with the water resistance, with the screens larger than 4 inches, with the digital readers and a multitude of ideas.

Now, however, we see a reverse situation: Ma was the first to introduce a basically unrecognized feature into the world, and we are seeing other manufacturers running behind to catch up with Cupertino's engineers. TrueDepth camera and the facial recognition system of the Face ID. What about him, well, if the Huawei If you're serious about your short-term plans, it looks like the Chinese giant will be the first to keep Ma company in complex face recognition technologies.

The company took advantage of the end of its latest keynote, which featured the Honor V10, to show a small preview of the new technology they are working on. The Chinese powerful front camera uses, as in the case of Apple, an infrared spot projector and a sensor that recognizes the depth of these spots, creating a face map used to recognize the owner of the device and even, when necessary, track their Expressions.

Huawei's future facial recognition technology scheme

According to Huawei, however, its still superior technology from Apple can create a map with 300,000 individual dots on a given face, 10 times more than Ma's solution in just 10 seconds. Thus, the system would in theory be even safer than Cupertino's and could be used for all aspects expected of a biometric system, such as payments and device unlocking.

Huawei, of course, could not stand it, and it also featured a feature extremely similar to the infamous Animojis, with the little added to recognize as well when the user sticks out his tongue. It seems to me that the race is quite fierce.

It is not yet known, however, what is the first Huawei handset to receive the new super-intelligent camera. Whereas China's latest flagship, the Kill 10, was introduced less than two months ago, and we probably still have to wait about a year to see her technology in real-world action.
