Oneplus May Face Lawsuit for its Facial Recognition in Oneplus 5T

After the arrival of iPhoneX, face recognition technology is getting popular. Few android smartphone makers including Google have adopted this new technology. This time oneplus may have to face lawsuit for its facial recognition technology.

This device can be easily fooled when it comes to user’s security for unlocking device. iPhoneX uses infrared camera, dot projector ,flood illuminator and ambient light sensor to map user’s face for secured unlocking using face ID. Unfortunately, Oneplus might be using patented technologies and it could land the company into big trouble.

In an interview with MySmartprice, SensibleVision’s CEO, George Brostoff said “This is nothing new. We have been doing this for years. It even appears that they (OnePlus) may be using several patented technologies…” He went on to add that “They (OnePlus) are likely infringing at the very least on our illumination patent…

Unlike iPhoneX,one 5T uses the facial recognition feature by using nothing more than a front facing camera with advanced smart algorithms. There is no complex sensor for end security which makes up a lack of user’s safety. This technology can be easily fooled and can be harmful for its users.Which could be a reason to land the company into a court lawsuit.
