Apple's new iPhone X comes with new design language with FullView bezel-less display having 18:9 aspect ratio and on the back, it flaunts a metal-cover with glass on top to assist wireless charging and a vertically aligned dual-camera, which is said to be almost on par with Google Pixel 2 series.
Besides the design language, the iPhone X's most notable aspect is its front camera. Apple mobile boasts an advanced TrueDepth camera system that makes use of IR laser sensor, Flood Illuminator (helps identify face even when its dark out), Dot Projector (30,000 invisible dots are projected onto the users face to build your unique facial map) and 7MP FaceTime snapper to accurately identify the owners face in 3D.
It is much superior to any other face recognition technology seen in current flagship phones, as it has the ability to detect fake 2D photos and it is intuitive enough to learn subtle changes in the owners face over time and still be able to accurately identify. This really sets a new benchmark in biometric security technology.
