The ZTE Axon 20 5G became the first mobile with a camera under the screen to be put on sale in Europe. For a long time, several manufacturers have been working to place the front camera of their phones under the screen. Soon it will not only be possible to place the front camera under the screen, as the face unlock sensor can also be placed under the panel, as Trinamix has made it official.
Trinamix introduced a 3D face unlock sensor which can be placed under an OLED panel. This sensor would make an all-screen phone much more comfortable and that in the near future we could already see in some Android phones.
Under-screen camera: everything you need to know
Various brands on Android are working on the introduction of the under-screen camera on their phones. We tell you all about this technology and its arrival on the market.
This is the Trinamix face unlock sensor
This system of face unlock under Trinamix screen is distinguished by the use of data. In addition to capturing infrared light with a pattern of dots, the technology uses a feature called Beam Profile Analysis to measure distance and material. According to the firm, it offers the same level of performance as systems like ToF. In this case, the only important requirement is to use a screen similar to the one ZTE used on their mobile.
This technology can be used in many cases, as in mobile payments, where it will be sufficiently secure. Plus, it will even have skin detection so it can make sure it’s a real person trying to unlock the phone, and it’s not a photo or some type of cardboard.
This Trinamix technology will hit the market in the near future, the brand said work with some phone manufacturers, but they haven’t given names yet. Manufacturers are currently testing this new system, so it does not appear that this year it is more visible in the market. It is estimated that the first shipments could begin in the first months of 2022. Additionally, the firm will show it live at an event in Shanghai at the end of February.
As with an under-screen camera, there is a possibility that this under-screen face release system is a compromise. The quality could be worse or it would take longer to recognize the face than a normal sensor, but this paves the way for more general use in the future.
