Samsung Ready to Launch Facial Recognition System a la iPhone X
Apple pioneered 3D face recognition with the debut of the iPhone X, and several companies followed in its footsteps, eventually bringing similar technologies to their devices.
Samsung itself has had basic iris and face recognition features on its flagship devices for more than two years, but just as expected, the company is now exploring ways to make these more secure and match the performance of Apple’s implementation.
While bringing 3D face recognition to its high-end models wouldn’t be quite a huge surprise, there’s no doubt this would lead to accusations of Samsung copying Apple. But by the looks of things, Samsung actually planned to do this a long time ago, as a patent filed in 2014 proves.
