Samsung may be working on a new facial recognition system for smartphones. The company’s newly discovered patent application describes its Dual UDC (Under Display Camera) technology, which uses two hidden cameras to scan his face from two different angles. This approach aims to make facial recognition on smartphones safer and more accurate.

Samsung applied for this patent to his KIPRIS (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service) in March 2021. It was released this Thursday and was spotted by Dutch publication GalaxyClub”Various embodiments contain several cameras, take multiple pictures of the user, and then combine them to create a final picture. Authentication is carried out “the patent description explained.
The documentation also mentions student measurements. Our pupils change size with light, so Samsung wants to use them as a validation tool. Change the brightness of the screen to determine student reaction. This allows the system to distinguish between real faces and models or photographs. This is because the pupil in a photograph does not change in size with the incidence of light.

As far as we can see, Samsung is trying to create a 3D image of your face while scanning your pupils for more accurate and safe facial recognition. A single camera cannot create a reliable facial recognition system. As we’ve seen throughout the year, it’s easy to fool someone with a photo or face that has the same facial structure. Therefore, Android smartphones typically use fingerprint scanners for biometric authentication.

Samsung could use this facial recognition tech in future foldable devices

As for this dual UDC system, we don’t know if Samsung is actively working on it or has patented the technology for possible future use. But if work continues, the company could use it for advanced facial recognition in future foldable devices — maybe even non-foldable smartphones. But before that, Samsung needs to keep the tech discreet so it doesn’t interfere with on-screen content.
