Fingerprint scanner will give way to user identification by face

Fingerprint scanner will give way to user identification by face Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is confident that in the near future, smartphone makers will abandon their fingerprint identification in favor of a face scanner by several hundred facial expressions. The ability to interact with virtual and augmented reality technologies will only strengthen the desire of Android device manufacturers to innovate in their products. Apple dictates fashion in this direction. After the presentation of the iPhone X with Face ID, requests for similar technology in flagship smartphones increased by 300%. Developers will focus on it in the near future. A fingerprint scanner that appears on the smartphone’s case with a separate button due to the rejection of the physical Home in favor of the touch, not everyone likes, moreover, it is often placed in a not very convenient place (such as this happened on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8). The transition to Face ID is very easy to explain: Apple did not risk its reputation using imperfect technologies. Focusing on a leading brand, manufacturers are looking for suppliers of ready-made 3D face recognition systems. Qualcomm, Himax, Orbbec and Mantis Vision can offer them. According to the authoritative forecast, the number of smartphones equipped with them will triple the fingerprint technique by 2020. However, Samsung is independently working on a unique system for OLED displays. If the Koreans soon succeed in creating a perfect fingerprint scanner that is imperceptibly mounted on the screen, forecasts will change, and everything will depend on the quality and speed of work of both innovative identification systems.
