Samsung looks to innovate display cameras, may soon unveil tech for facial recognition

Taking on the global innovation around facial recognition technology, the Korean technology major is reported to be working on a camera system for facial recognition that involves two under-display cameras.

According to reports, the new technology is described in a patent application Samsung filed with the (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service) back in March 2021. The document in question was made public last week and picked up by a Dutch publication.

The new technology can help get multiple images of the user from two angles to better construct a 3D model of the face and use that for authentication purposes.

Samsung has so far experimented with the technology on its Galaxy Fold line without a broader release, the report said. The patent of the new technology also does not really go into so much detail.

However, it does show a mockup of a regular “slab” style phone with two UDC cameras — one at the top and one at the bottom. Another thing mentioned in the patent is measuring pupil size.

As per the report, the idea is that a human’s pupil size should vary depending on lighting conditions. This could be used as an extra security measure against using things like photos or masks to trick facial authentication.
