p The iPhone's selfie camera might enter the third dimension.
Apple is reportedly working with LG Innotek, a branch of LG that makes electronic components, to supply the world's first 3D facial recognition capable camera to the iPhone 8, according to Korea Economic Daily (via The Investor).
3D facial recognition would give the camera the ability to sense depth, which can in theory make the act of unlocking the phone with your face more secure.
The straightforward facial recognition on the new Samsung Galaxy S8 isn't secure enough to authenticate mobile payments; it's been fooled by using a simple photograph.
The iPhone 8 was rumored to get facial recognition after Apple bought Israeli startup RealFace.
And this isn't the first time we've heard that LG Innotek will be supplying the camera modules to make Apple's facial recognition possible.
