Apple has had a string of solid and, at times, impressive iPhone releases over the past few years.

Still, it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a new iPhone model actually stir up some genuine excitement amongst iPhone users.

Sure, camera technology on the iPhone has improved tremendously over the past few years, but the overall look and feel of the iPhone itself has essentially remained unchanged since the iPhone 6 was released more than three years ago.

As far as new features are concerned, you might have to go as far back as Touch ID on the iPhone 5s before coming across a new iPhone feature that managed to generate some genuine buzz on its own.

The iPhone X, therefore, is a welcome breath of fresh air.

Sporting an edgeless OLED display and a new facial recognition system dubbed Face ID, the iPhone X is the radical redesign iPhone fans have been looking forward to for years.

The D day for the UMIDIGI fans is tomorrow, because the hyped UMIDIGI S2 Pro model will finally get into the presales on Gearbest and the price will even be tweaked down by $40 from the retail level down to to $299.99.

And the shipping is expected to start between December 10th and 16th so not that further ahead either.

And the good news just keep coming, because based on the customer feedback (and surely on the current popularity) they decided to add the Face ID recognition technology to the face.

So the face unlocking will be a thing for the UMIDIGI S2 Pro and adds to the appeal for the phone.

But UMIDIGI S2 Pro is already pretty well equipped to serve with the 6-inch FHD+ resolution display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Helio P25 processor, dual channel 6 GB RAM, 128 GB of internal storage and quite innovative nano-coating waterproof technology.

And in the following video you can check out the multitasking performance of the phone.

Unlike manually typed passwords, your face is unique—a simple fact that may make it an invaluable authenticator in the near future for everything from stock trading to video games, as biometrics become increasingly common (and powerful) in smartphones.

This technology is part of UMIDIGI S2 Pro’s security suite alongside a broader face recognition system and fingerprint options.

It pays attention to the distortion that occurs as you move your face closer to the phone’s camera, and analyzes how the distortion in images taken when you want to get into, say, a social media app, compare to that in images already stored on the phone.UMIDIGI S2 Pro is powered by MediaTek’s octa-core Helio P25, ticking at 2.6 GHz, LPDDR4X Dual-Channel 6GB Ram with 128GB Rom.

There is no doubt that this smartphone is qualified to smoothly run all the necessary apps including the facial recognition ID system.

With the help of sanforized 16MP front camera the phone will easily get and remember your facial features.

When the smartphone makes a scan your face, the phone will gather more than 128 features from your face.

I’ve now had the iPhone X for just 24 hours—the majority of which have been spent trying to break Face ID.

For the most part, Face ID has worked as described—opening my phone when I’m sitting in the dark, or wearing a variety of glasses.

But today, while shooting a Facebook Live illustrating the technology, I managed to kind of break Face ID.

First of all, I wanted to know whether Face ID would work when my eyes are closed.

It’s not supposed to—it tracks the movement of your eyes using its combination of infrared light and cameras to make sure you’re actually there and paying attention.

A colleague even managed to open the phone using my face while I feigned sleep.

The flood gates are open.

After a slew of rumors and renders of the Samsung Galaxy S9 surfaced recently, in anticipation of the phone's announcement on Feb. 25, rumors of some key new features have surfaced.

The info comes from an APK teardown of the latest Android Oreo beta for the Galaxy Note 8 done by SamCentral.

Similar to the Homepod leak last year that spilled the beans on many of the iPhone X's secrets, the code in this beta contains references to several features that don't exist yet -- and therefore may be coming to the Galaxy S9.

These features include "Intelligent Scan" facial recognition, 3D stickers and a shot tagging camera mode.

Intelligent Scan may be a new method of biometric authentication that combines iris scanning and facial recognition for extra security.

If an iPhone has something new in terms of technology then you can more or less bet all your money on the fact, that some smaller chinese brands will soon try to catch up on that.

So it comes as no big surprise that the Face ID facial recognition tech si starting to come for the new phone models.

UHANS i8 is one of the first among them and the phone already got a exclusive launch on Geekbuying e-shop for the Black Friday sales.

The Uhans i8 sports rather thin bezels, and it comes with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio of its big 5,7-inch display with HD resolution.

But of course the main selling point will be probably the aforementioned Face ID tech for a simple unlock of your phone by just a quick glance at the front camera lens.

But there is also a fingeprint scanner in the back just in case you would prefer this old-school method.

The Face ID tech is currently all over the plance, since the unveiling in iPhone X the popularity is through the roof and everybody and their mothers need to have one.

Of course in majority of the phones the Face ID is just mimicked through the front selfie camera, but you can get a really cheap one, just like the Blackview A10.

And today we have for you a discount coupon for it from the wares of the Cafago e-shop so with JPZ0185 you can get it for just $88.99 / 74.78€ expiring January 29th.

The phone can offer 5-inch HD screen, MT6580A chipset, 2 GB RAM + 16 ROM, 5MP+2MP cameras, 2800 mAh battery, rear fingerprint scanner, dual SIM support and Android 7.0 Nougat as the OS.

And because the winter is currently in full swing in Europe and especially US, then you can maybe need some windproof fleece fabric winter gloves with touch screen feature so gloved phone controls are possible.

Variety of sizes and colors available just as the discount coupon DY6753 bringing the price down to $5.19 /4.36€ expiring January 20th.

Inspired by the Face recognition system on the iPhone X, numerous phone brands are currently working on phones with Face ID facial recognition support.

And Chinese phone maker Meiigoo is one of the first among them and today we have for you a video showing how the Face ID system works on the upcoming Meiigoo Note8.

As shown in the video, to start using the Face ID, you need first to enroll your face, but the enrolling process is quite easy and simple, so no worries.

According to Meiigoo the front-facing camera with 3D facial recognition can capture nearly 150 facial features for accurate and fast recognition.

After enrolling and following the instruction, you could light up the display and unlock the phone with just a look.

That’s pretty fast, secure and convenient, no one could have access to your phone but you.

As pretty much always, when Apple pushes out a “new” technology, everybody else follows; the latest example of which, is Face ID on the iPhone X.

So, who do you think is ready to launch a device with the same technology?

Is that Huawei, Xiaomi or Oppo?

Well, none of the aforementioned.

Apparently, rapidly growing phone maker – Meiigoo – are the ones who already have the tech; let’s learn more about it!

Previous to today, we had heard that Meiigoo has been working on another all-screen device named Meiigoo Note8.

As planned the new Oukitel K6 got officialy shown today for the first time on their website so now the full specs are out in the open.

The phone looks quite solid and could be a very interesting option for the late Christmas gift if they manage to get it in stores in time.

Also they started a special activity event for the fans where you can win half price coupons and even one free K6.

Most of the specs got already revealed few days ago, but there are still some surprises on the list, like the Face ID unlock support paired also with the more traditional rear fingerprint scanner.

Full specs based on the Oukitel’s website are as follows :

Processor: MT6763 octa-core Cortex A53 2.0GHz , ARM Mali-G71 2700MHz

Seems like we have the third generation of “Power” coming, at least according to the official sources the release of the new Ulefone Power 3 is getting really close.

And because the company is dosing us carefully with small bits of the specs here and there, we are slowly assembling the big picture.

It’s already confirmed that Power 3 will be featuring 4-camera setup with 13MP+5MP selfie combo with softlight flash and bokeh effect capability or the rear duo 16MP+5MP sensors with dual flash.

Ulefone is promising a very good performance in the low-light conditions so let’s hope for the best.

Ulefone Power 3 will be also equipped with some sort of Face ID tech to fall in line with the current trend and demand.

But from what we know about it just don’t expect miracles, because you will be once again forced to light up the display first making it kind of slower than simply using the good old fingerprint scanner.

Following in the steps of the iPhone X an increasing number of phone makers are releasing phones with face recognition support and their take on the Face ID tech.

Ulefone is one of the first among them and today we have for you a video showing how the facial identification system works on the newly launched Ulefone Power 3.

So let’s take a look.

The front camera is capable of capturing over 130 facial features for the safe and secure unlock and should be even faster than the conventional methods.

Ulefone also stated that they are still optimizing the Face ID system for more accurate and quicker identification, so the final Face recognition system on the Power 3 would be much better and will look a bit different.

In addition to that, the Ulefone Power 3 also packs interesting features such as:

Nowadays, flagships follow a pretty clear trend, have a metal and / or glass body, have thin bezels around the 18:9 aspect ratio screen, preferably have a dual camera module for some funky features and a Face ID recognition technology.

Vernee X Face ID Recognition Technology

The Vernee X has added the latest face ID recognition technology with the intelligently face IF unlock arithmetic.

The process of recognition will theoretically only be 0.2s.

Just turn on the screen and unlock the phone.

And even in the darkness the unlocking should be somewhat reliable.

Bloggers have begun getting some hands-on time with the iPhone X ahead of its shipping date, and the word on the street is that it’s pretty bangin’.

And while it’s playing catch-up with the introduction of a bezel-less screen, it’s trumping the entire universe of Android devices with its new Face ID feature, which unlocks your phone as soon as you look at your handset.

The feature uses a front-mounted depth camera to analyze more than 30,000 points on your face to identify you, while also being able to distinguish between your actual face and any likeness (such as a headshot), as well as recognize you even if you’ve got makeup on, grown a beard, or had a haircut.

So does that mean Android device makers should follow suit in 2018?

Chinese gadget firm Meizu is already on the case: the company is working with chip maker MediaTek to create ‘the best facial recognition technology on smartphones’, and plans to reveal it next year.

Since the launch of the Apple iPhone X with Face ID, many users seem to be craving for smartphones with the neat feature built-in into the smartphone.

According to studies run by Apple this identification method is really secure and reliable, that’s why Chinese phone maker AllCall decided to pack this functionality on their upcoming flagship.

As you may have read in the title, we’re talking about the AllCall Mix 2.

The next all-screen device is indeed going to come with this really innovative technology which will put their smartphone in the same league as bigger companies such as Samsung, Apple and OnePlus, which already run Face ID (or equivalent) on their devices.

We don’t know much yet about AllCall’s handset, other than the processor it’ll be packing – a power efficient Mediatek Helio P23 – and the OS, which will be the latest Android 8.0 Oreo build, so it’s hard to tell if the Face ID feature is enough to buy over some customers.

What we know though, is that the Mix 2 appears to be a good all-around device filled with interesting features and, if priced correctly, could become a really interesting all-screen alternative.

Earlier this month, Vietnamese cybersecurity firm Bkav released a video supposedly showing how it could trick the iPhone X’s Face ID using a mask.

Some skeptics questioned its authenticity and whether the method could bypass the phone’s attention detection system.

Now, the company has released a second video that reveals more about its spoofing method and the mask's effectiveness.

The fact Bkav never showed the Face ID enrolment process in its original clip had raised some eyebrows, but the new video records the whole process.

This time, a new 3D-printed mask made from stone powder rather than paper tape is used, while the 2D-printed eyes are again present.

In this clip, we see the researcher capture his Face ID profile in real time.
