Android 2018 will also change the footprint sensor by Face ID

As already happened with the jack connection that Apple withdrew with the iPhone 7 a little more than a year ago, this 2017 in Cupertino have returned to anticipate the times removing the fingerprint sensor in favor of facial recognition . As a result, Tim Cook's are now more interested in everything the 3D sensor industry can offer, both in software and hardware. And they are not the only ones.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, this change will spread to all other brands in the industry and without the iPhone X has been released , Android manufacturers and developers are already interested in 3D facial recognition technologies such as Truedepth. Come on, that 2018 could bring surprises in the market and that the fingerprint sensor, which this year integrate the entirety of Android's flagships, will be forgotten .

Goodbye to fingerprint sensors, hello to facial recognition

Although the fingerprint sensors are the next step, it would be integrated inside the screens, it seems that the fingerprints are destined for extinction in favor of facial recognition, which, in addition to allowing a much more precise form of authentication, opens the door to animojis and the development of augmented reality .

And it is that the facial recognition has advantages over the fingerprint reader integrated in the screen , beyond being more secure: its adaptation is much simpler in the terminals than the fingerprint sensor in both the OLED display of the most premium ranges the LCD.

So far, the products available for Android come from Qualcomm and Himax, Orbbec and Mantis Vision, the first being the most interesting. However, in the next 2 or 3 years we will see Android devices equipped with technologies similar to Face ID . What do you bet?
