There are reports that Xiaomi, Oppo, as well as Samsung, are working in conjunction with Qualcomm for the use of 3D Facial recognition on their flagship smartphones.
The iPhone X's Face ID feature has received positive reviews even though the device is still new in the market.
The latest report is that Xiaomi and OPPO are fine-tuning arrangements with Qualcomm for the debut of the technology on their flagships next year.
The 3D Facial Recognition technology is said to be jointly developed by Qualcomm and Wonder Vision while the sensor module will be supplied by Reliance Optoelectronics. The facial recognition solutions would reportedly enter mass production around March and April next year.
Huawei is also tipped as working with Sunny Optical Technologies to develop 3D sensor solutions for its high-end models. In China, Ophelia optical technology is also said to be developing a similar technology and is expected to cooperate with domestic manufacturers in the future.
