OnePlus May 'Face' Court Over Face Unlock Feature

OnePlus May 'Face' Court Over Face Unlock Feature”

While this may look like a big blow for OnePlus, Brostoff also said that this is not the first time when a manufacturer has infringed on the illumination patent. While he did not confirm whether SensibleVision is going to approach OnePlus legally, but his statements do hint at some action brewing.

A camera is used for providing images to the facial recognition software where the display operates in a first mode for displaying images to a user and in a second mode for illuminating the user's face for detection by the camera.
We have been doing this for years. "We have not licensed our patents to OnePlus or their supplier". Taking a cue from OnePlus 5T's video on Forbes, OnePlus has at the very least infringed on SensibleVision's illumination patent. Patent infringement claims in particular are extremely hard to verify, so we spoke with Rohini Lakshane, who's a Public Policy Researcher with extensive experience on patent and intellectual property regulation for more insight into the matter and an expert analysis on what this potential patent spat could entail.

By the way, you might want to keep the company name of SensibleVision in mind. Patents are valid only in the jurisdiction where they have been granted.

It may be too early for detailed OnePlus 6 rumors, but a "reliable tipster" told Android Marvel the OnePlus 6 will have the same advanced facial recognition system as the iPhone X. That is with respect to sale of the devices in China. Apparently, SensibleVision notified "several companies" over the years about the patent. This is usually confidential. One person that might not be so happy with OnePlus is George Brostoff, CEO and co-founder of SensibleVision. A Florida-based company SensibleVision claims that OnePlus might be using some of its patented technologies.

However, all of this is conjecture from an expert in the field, as there's no concrete corroborating proof legitimising SensibleVision's patent infringement claims against OnePlus either. OnePlus acknowledged as much, as the face recognition system it developed isn't safe for mobile payments.
