Contra Apple: Infineon Plans Face-ID-like Module

             The German chip company wants to sell manufacturers of Android phones a reminiscent of the true-depth camera in the iPhone X complete system. Prototypes already exist.
            

        

        Apple's iPhone X has also grown in the competition's interest in face recognition systems. The Group uses a complex camera module called True Depth, in which an infrared point cloud with a tiny projector is sent out.
From 2019 in Android devices? The German chip manufacturer Infineon now wants to provide manufacturers of Android smartphones similarly sophisticated technology as a complete module. At the MWC in Barcelona, ​​the Munich-based company is currently demonstrating the prototype of a system that uses laser beams to create a 3D image of the user. The production of the modules should start at the end of the year, so that they could appear in smartphones in 2019.
Also already on the market phones with the Google operating system can be unlocked by face recognition. But in many cases they rely on simple image recognition and could often even be tricked with photos. Apple replaced in its current top smartphone iPhone X the previous unlocking by fingerprint through a complex face recognition with said infrared rays and lasers. The system fills in the gap at the top of the iPhone X screen.
More compact module and Animoji-like features In Barcelona, ​​many Asian smartphone vendors are already showing phones with a similar screen gap, even though they only have the usual front camera and speakers. Android phones are "clearly our target market," said Infineon Manager Martin Gotschlich at the show.
Compared to Apple's Face-ID solution, the Infineon module is even more compact thanks to a slightly different technology and works "sturdier" in bright sunlight. The "3D point cloud" can also be used just like Apple to animate avatars or emoji with the facial expressions of the user. This process is called Apple Animoji. (with material from dpa) /
