ZTE presents its second generation of smartphone camera placed under the screen and takes the opportunity to announce that it integrates a 3D facial recognition system.
Barcelona’s MWC 2021 has been postponed to this summer. Instead, the Shanghai Mobile World Congress is currently taking place. Several brands are present there, including ZTE, which demonstrated the first integrated 3D facial recognition system under the screen of a smartphone.
The Chinese manufacturer was recently mentioned with the first photo sensor hidden under the display of a smartphone – the ZTE Axon 20 5G. The result was unfortunately not really convincing, but the brand is not discouraged.
In a post on its official Weibo account, ZTE explains that the pixel density in the area of the screen that covers the front photo sensor has been increased from 200 to 400 dpi. This should, therefore, allow the camera to be better camouflaged rather than having a type of disturbing dot as in the Axon 20 5G.
ZTE also claims to have managed to combine its technology with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
It is in another post on Weibo that he claims to have integrated a 3D facial recognition system.
Unfortunately, it is not yet known how the brand managed to ensure that the integration of sensors under the screen does not prevent the smooth functioning of 3D facial recognition. Remember that the goal of these solutions is to be safer by analyzing the user’s face more accurately, rather than being satisfied with a simple photo.
ZTE is confident enough that its solution can be used to guarantee payments, 3D modeling or augmented reality. Everything suggests that this technology will be incorporated in the future ZTE Axon 30 5G.
