The Funtouch OS version 7.11.10 which included Face Unlock feature is currently rolling out in China.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo launched their Xplay6 smartphone with a hyperbolic display last year. The device has received a new Funtouch OS update bringing advanced features like face recognition.
The Funtouch OS update version is 7.11.10 measuring 170.2 MB where the most important feature is facial recognition. The process doesn’t use any hardware like the iPhone X TrueDepth Camera but uses software algorithm like in the OnePlus 5T. It uses the front camera to calculate the depth of field information and match the identification with the available data to unlock. Although many users will fear for security reasons, there is a fingerprint sensor in the device.
Additionally, the update improves the system security and stability and also third-party application App compatibility along with optimisation of the system to connect the Bluetooth playback.
The Vivo XPlay6 sports a 5.46 inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution and Dual Edge technology and is powered by a 64 bit Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor with Adreno 530 GPU coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal space. It sports a dual camera setup on the rear consisting two Sony IMX362 12 MP + 5 MP with aperture f/1.8, OIS, PDAF autofocus and dual LED dual tone flash while offering a 16 MP camera on the front. It initially ran on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with FunTouch UI on top and is backed by a 4080 mAh battery.
