Much has been said of Apple's take on facial recognition, with the Face ID that's featured on the iPhone X being the subject of many a discussion since it's launch last month. MediaTek, not one to be left out, is set to partner with Meizu in developing a facial recognition system that can compete with Apple's.

MediaTek's fortunes have been on a slow decline over the past year but Meizu has, for better or worse, stuck to the manufacturers, a relationship best exemplified by the fact that the Helio X30, MediaTek's premium SoC for the year, has only been used in Meizu's own Pro 7 flagship. 

Qualcomm is already aboard the trend's ship with the manufacturer, a few ago, claiming that its next SoC, the Snapdragon 845, will come with features that allow it to rival Apple's Face ID. Of course, Samsung already uses a similar biometric technology—Iris Scanning, so it would seem that MediaTek is, once again, the last to join the crowd.

We're not sure when exactly in 2018 we'll be getting the device with facial recognition but there's a chance it may be as early as Q3, when the Meizu Pro 8 is launched.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
