Based in Israel, the start-up Mantis Vision, together with Namuga, is working on 3D cameras for the following Samsung flagships. This is reported by The Investor, referring to the South Korean resource The Bell.
Cameras Namuga already used in a number of budget smartphones Samsung. Mantis Vision, according to the source, is responsible for software – the company will have to teach the system to recognize faces. Technologies of this company have already been applied in the AR-platform Project Tango from Google.
The fresh Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + still use a two-dimensional scan of the user’s face, which works together with the iris scanner. The solution Namuga and Mantis Vision by the method of operation will more closely resemble the Face ID technology in the iPhone X.
Earlier, other sources believed that in the top-end smartphones of the next generation Samsung will have a built-in fingerprint scanner.
