Now, almost every smartphone manufacturer has those. So, what lies ahead for Sony? Probably a 3D depth sensor pointed at your face. SoftKinetic (a subsidiary of Sony), which makes advanced camera sensors, will debut the technology at the MWC in Shanghai this week.
You’ve probably seen that Face unlock feature on one of your smartphones but did you know that the feature can be easily fooled by using the photo of the owner because it runs on 2D Technology. The new 3D technology has the potential to boost the speed and accuracy of facial recognition. You’ll have to get a bust of the owner to defeat 3D face unlock. The demo device will use 3D facial recognition technology from a Swiss company called KeyLemon.
SoftKinetic will demo this technology integrated with one of Sony’s Xperia smartphones, so it’s at least feasible to build a device with this module included.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
