Face ID-like support built-in could be in Android Q

- The next version of Android could support face-to-face recognition
- Some manufacturers already use something similar
- Apple Face ID uses depth detection


 
The code found in the upcoming version of the next Android Q software update has revealed that Google is preparing to use a more secure face detection hardware.

For a backup to be overcomplicated, the shortened version is to detect a list of strings that indicate messages that appear on the screen during a facial recognition configuration or when trying authentication. Action by face scanning.

This may be a phone unlock or an application download authorisation. Essentially, all you would use to fingerprint analysis. The most important line of all these codes is the one that explicitly mentions the ability to activate scanning for purchase authorisation.

After initial setup (i.e. When viewing messages), it reads: "Use your face to unlock the phone, purchase authorization, or sign in to applications." The code was discovered in an article from XDA-Developers.

Currently, most face-to-face Android phones only use the front camera to recognise you, which means it's not safe enough to allow payments or downloads, etc.


However, there is an exception. For example, Oppo Find X and Huawei Mate 20 Pro use more advanced Face Detection equipment than OnePlus 6T. In either case, however, every hardware manufacturer had to develop their firmware and software to support these sensors.

Built directly into the next version of Android, the main mobile operating system supports it, meaning that multiple manufacturers can use it to make faces look much safer.

Although the code that is not covered, it is interesting to itself but asks some questions. It mainly refers to time.

Android's recent development - specifically in hardware - suggests that manufacturers move away from the uprights embedded at the top of the screen, deciding on small cut-outs, or (by 2019), even more, punching style recently; as in the new Honor View 20. Why invest in this now?

We would assume that if you do not create a sliding or pop-up mechanism like Oppo Find X or Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, including the hardware needed for a more secure face scanner, this will result in regression up to larger cuts and wider than the iPhone XS Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Likewise, there is the fact that integrated fingerprint readers are in development and are currently being developed. They use hidden cameras underneath the screen to authenticate unlocking and buying the phone when a fingerprint is detected. This is for sure and does not require large screenshots.

This means that Apple's identity has the key element that makes it so appealing that we will not worry about the thick cuts on our Pixel 4: convenience. It is very useful to be able to pick up the phone while you are watching and unlocking it without further steps. It is also very useful to enter your phone. And we all know the consolation is king.
