Facial recognition is not something new, but the iPhone X might just be the device to finally make this technology popular. However, Apple did not manage to make this biometric authentication method more secure than it already was before the launch of its most expensive flagship. In fact, this technology was never safer than fingerprint scanning, but since Apple is definitely a trendsetter in the mobile market, we should see quite a few such authentication solutions for mobiles arriving in the next few years.

During the special event where the company unveiled the new Honor V10 phablet, Huawei also previewed the upcoming face scanning technology that is currently still in development. According to them, the system can unlock a handset in 0.4 seconds, not much slower than the company's fingerprint sensors currently in use.

The good part is that the face recognition technology by Huawei promises to use more than just a single frontal camera as most Android handsets these days. The hardware it employs is similar to what we've already seen in the Google Tango devices launched so far, and it can easily create a 3D digital replica of an object for sending to a 3D printer or manipulate on the phone.

Huawei also revealed a technology similar to Apple's Animoji, only that its animated panda bear is much more detailed than the simple cartoon characters used by the Cupertino-based company. 

Unfortunately, there is no launch date for any of these technologies yet. We can only hope to hear more on December 5, when Huawei is expected to unveil the international availability and pricing details for the Honor V10.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
