It seems that the one in charge of supplying the necessary modules for everything related to facial recognition in the iPhone 8 or iPhone X will be LG Innotek.

A rumor not so rumor?

There are countless rumors that flood the networks about what Apple's iPhone 8 will implement. Yesterday we could see in this article a series of readers, and even a video, of what the iPhone 8 will be like and we were able to see certain things clearly.

The first thing physical absence of Touch ID , which would indicate that they are not going to place it in the back, and that if they did, they could include it in the functions area, which we have also told you about here .

Another thing that was also rumoured, and may be related to the absence of Touch ID from the article mentioned above, would be the ever closer possibility that the iPhone 8 has facial recognition.

The source that has announced this fact has been The Investor , and from there they tell us how LG is already part of our iPhone. You will be interested to know that LG is in charge of supplying Apple with the modules of the double camera that mount the iPhone 7 Plus , the iSight Duo.

It is said that LG would be thinking of building a plant to be able to build this series of sensors and modules so that Apple can mount this type of technology in its long-awaited iPhone 8, located on the FaceTime camera . The cost of construction of said manufacturing plant would be around 238 million dollars.

Ming-Chi-Kuo already predicted that Apple would incorporate such technology in its next iPhone, although it was later said that it was not yet developed enough to implement it today. He even went so far as to mention the source of said production, PrimeSense , best known for creating the Xbox Kinect controller.

It is not yet known how they will make all this possible, but there has also been a lot of talk about facial recognition through infrared sensors. All of this may sound a bit futuristic, but iris recognition is already being used by many users.

What is clear is that Apple must innovate and launch a totally new product, with innovative and amazing functions and features, if it does not want to be attacked by the competition.

Do you think we will see this facial recognition technology in the iPhone 8, or maybe it will be seen in the next one?
