Face ID would be under the screen with the iPhone 15 Pro

Samsung’s technology would “hide” the sensors needed for Face ID under the iPhone 15 Pro screen. This would be similar to what Samsung is currently offering on its Galaxy Fold 3. On this model, the pixel density above the sensor below the screen is lower compared to the rest of the screen to allow light to shine through. reach the camera. But this has an impact on the quality of the photos: it is a little less good.

Samsung would work with the Canadian group OTI Luminonics to better develop this technology and offer it on the next smartphones from Apple. But ahead of iPhones, the upgraded system will debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 expected in 2023.

This is not the first time we have heard of Face ID under the screen. Last year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned such facial recognition for at least one iPhone in 2023. Ross Young, an analyst specializing in screens, also mentioned 2023 for this system.
