The OnePlus 6 Will Have One Thing In Common With The iPhone X
When Apple decided to drop the iconic Touch ID on its new iPhone X, a lot of people had apprehensions about its facial recognition technology. Facial recognition has been present in Android devices ever since the advent of Android Jellybean. Samsung devices have iris scanning, although its a secondary way of securing the device since they also have fingerprint sensors.
But, ever since Apple unveiled Face ID, facial recognition has received a lot of mainstream attention and it is no denying that Face ID is the most secure rendition of the facial recognition technology. It now appears that the OnePlus 6, expected to be launched in mid-2018 will have its own version of Face ID. It may be too early for detailed OnePlus 6 rumours, but a report claims that the OnePlus 6 will have the same advanced facial recognition system as the iPhone X.
The OnePlus 6 will have a camera hardware setup similar to the iPhone X, complete with a 3D camera module that will use infrared light to measure depth. However, the OnePlus 6 will not have an iPhone X-like notch. Instead, the handset is expected to have a full top bezel where the extra sensors should be found.
The OnePlus 5T was launched with facial recognition system as well. However, OnePlus conceded that it is not for security purposes but, for convenience.
