iPhone X makers are still struggling to make Facial Recognition better
iPhone X has new 5.8 inch Super Retina Display screen. It is using OLED screen with true blacks, high brightness and 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio. It has TrueDepth camera and sensors that enable Face ID. It has more durable glass on front and back, surgical-grade stainless steel on sides and comes with Qi supported wireless charging.

iPhone X is using Face ID to unlock and authenticate the phone. Face ID is enabled by the TrueDepth camera. It will use more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face. But, now manufacturers are struggling to perfect in 3D sensors dot projectors. This dot projector is a part of the transmitting module “Romeo” of new facial recognition function which allows unlocking phones. Here, receiving module is named as “Juliet”.
As per Nikkei Asian Review, the makers of 3D sensor parts are facing issues to reach a satisfactory level of output and to boost their yield rate and it might hit company’s margin. Also, as per Pu’s estimate provided on Nikkei Asian Review, Foxconn has produced 2 million units of iPhone X in September and is expected to rise to 10 million in October.
