Samsung is attempting to develop a dual under display camera (UDC) technology that will help it improve the facial recognition technique for the face unlocking feature, according to a patent filed by the South Korean company. This arrangement may also include a three-dimensional/stereoscopic scan to unlock the phone. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 has a 4-megapixel UDC and is located on the folding screen.
Samsung is developing a technology, apparatus, and storage medium for authenticating the user as per the patent, which was first filed in March 2021 and published this week. The company seems to be developing dual UDCs that will monitor the user''s face from different angles to unlock the phone.
According to several embodiments, the electronic device is the memory, display, and the many cameras arranged in the lower portion of the display, and at least one processor operatingly connected to the memory is included, according to the Samsung patent. The apparatus also receives multiple pictures about the user that can then be set up in order to perform the authentication based on the final image.
Multiple scannings from different cameras might provide a more accurate picture, according to Galaxy Club. Since the cameras are scanning the face from different angles, the face of the user might be captured with more depth, which in theory is less likely to fool as compared to a more 2D image. Both of these may combine and enhance the facial recognition.
Only the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has an UDC camera and we discussed it before making it a choice for clicking selfies. Apple has already pioneered the FaceID technology and is using face unlock as the only biometric technique to unlock the phone or tablet.
