We all know very well that the technological leap that the tech giant Apple made when it launched the iPhone X, and especially Face ID, showed its ability to reinvent technologies and improve them, moving away from the competition. Hence, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Apple’s Face ID tech is two years ahead of Android.
Apple’s Face ID Tech Is Two Years Ahead Of Android
The technological leap that the tech giant Apple made when it launched the iPhone X, and especially Face ID, showed its ability to reinvent technologies and improve them, moving away from the competition.
It would be expected that by this time other brands have managed to match the tech giant Apple in this technology, but industry data reveal that Android manufacturers are 2 years behind the tech giant Apple.
A market review by Reuters of smartphone construction parts suppliers revealed something many had already realized. Android makers are failing to keep up with the tech giant Apple’s facial recognition technology, and it has been revealed that this delay will be 2 years.
The reasons for this delay
The main reason for this delay is the shortage of components needed to create these 3D sensor systems, which will lead to their adoption only starting next year.
The information comes from 3 of the leading manufacturers, Viavi Solutions, Ams AG and Finisar Corp, which are also suppliers of parts for the system that creates the Face ID and that will be able to offer the components to other companies.
A million dollar technology
For now, systems such as Face ID are limited to face recognition and 3D animojis, but there are many more areas where these systems can be used and generate multi-million dollar revenue.
The main area will be augmented reality, where users will be able to play a more central role, with the creation of 3D avatars and their more realistic integration.
After the issue of the price of components prevents massification, it is now the availability of components that is preventing the arrival of systems similar to Android, even in the top equipment and higher prices.
