Apple’s latest iPhone X ditches the much-loved Touch ID for the new Face ID feature. The Face ID uses dedicated hardware and software to scan a person’s face to unlock their new iPhone X. All the operations are carried out locally inside the Apple’s new A11 bionic neural engine. Apple claims the chances of somebody else unlocking your iPhone using their own face is as rare as one in a million. According to Apple, their Face unlocks technology will be the future of biometric identity. Huawei, on the other hand, claims they have a much better technology.
In their bizarre new Facebook commercial, Huawei takes a dig at Apple showing the new Face ID feature failing to unlock the iPhone. The company is going to unveil the “real AI phone” on October 16th. Last month at IFA, Huawei showcased the new Kirin 970 chip featuring onboard “Neural Processing Unit” also known as NPU. Huawei’s NPU is very much similar to Apple’s recently revealed A11 bionic neural engine. Considering Huawei was the first to incorporate the neural engine on the smartphone processor, their claim seems reasonable.
Real AI Phone
Let’s wait till October 16th and see what Huawei has to offer. Apple’s first Face ID demo failed during their live presentation which probably encouraged Huawei to take a dig at their new feature.
Stay tuned for the update.
