Huawei's Facial Recognition Technology Based On "Flying II'' Depth Learning Algorithm; Crude Presentation Provides Updates For The Feature
The launch of Face ID on the iPhone X came with a strong marketing focus. We saw Apple go to great lengths at giving simplistic definitions for the feature. It marks the first true innovation, albeit incremental, from Cupertino's end in years. Looking to stay ahead, Apple removed fingerprint recognition on the iPhone exactly a year after taking away 3.5mm earphone ports. This, left the industry confused, with various manufacturers reacting differently.
Soon after the iPhone X launch, Huawei also detailed its version for facial recognition. Now, we've got fresh details for the feature.

The iPhone's secure enclave is famous for restricted access, and is the main reason why a large number of users jumped to Face ID completely in a short time period.
The Flying II depth learning algorithm takes into account the scene's color, infrared, picture depth and facial details. As mentioned previously, Huawei's main challenge on the P20 lineup is to ensure this works smoothly in the 4mm space the sensors will take on the P20 lite. Even Apple, with its famous supply chain bullying faced struggles calibrating the iPhone X's True Depth camera. Whatever the case is, we'll find out soon.
