iPhone 8 to 'Deeply Sense' User's Face in 'Millionths of a Second' [Report]

The iPhone 8 will come with a facial recognition feature that can 'deeply sense' a user's face in 'millionths of a second', according to the Korea Herald.

The new facial recognition scanner with 3-D sensors can deeply sense a user’s face in the millionths of a second. Also, 3-D sensors are said to be adopted for the front and rear of the device to realize AR applications, which integrate 3-D virtual images with user’s environment in real time.

The existence of a facial recognition feature was confirmed in firmware for the upcoming HomePod. It's referenced as Pearl ID. The feature may even work when your iPhone is lying flat.

It's said that Apple and Samsung both tried create an in-display fingerprint reader for the new phones but both appear to have failed due to technical difficulties.

Additionally, the report says Apple has decided not to use a curved edge display; rather the iPhone will have a flat screen with minimal bezels and a notch on the top for the earpiece and front camera.

As to why Apple adopted plastic OLED even though it will not make the device curved or with an edge, the source said, OLED can make the device thinner and lighter compared to liquid crystal display panels that Apple has long adopted for its former iPhone models.

Apple is expected to unveil three new smartphones next month. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Even if I got a cut from shaving? What about taking drunk selfies for Apple Pay or buying some iTunes sh*? Will it work if I make funny, not registered faces? xP

Look good. Just dont like the vertical camera much

The vertical camera (horizontal in landscape mode) will give a more realistic parallax effect when generating 3D photography. Most people take photos in landscape, so having the dual camera in this orientation makes sense. But as for the facial recognition and unlocking the phone, I'd love to know how Apple is going to determine that I want to unlock the phone. Many times, a glance at the phone is simply to see what time it is. With touch ID it unlocking was determined by how long the user rested their finger (or thumb) on the sensor. It will be interesting.

potentially easy: face recognition is only used to unlock while you rest your finger on the "home button area" for a certain duration... :-P
