The iPhone X marks Apple’s departure from the Touch ID to Face ID, a new face recognition system that uses camera 3D sensing technologies to secure devices.

And while giving up on fingerprint recognition is a major change for iPhone users, it seems that it’s becoming a change that everyone should be getting used to, as Android smartphone manufacturers are very keen on equipping their models with similar technology.

A note sent by top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo to investors indicates that orders for 3D sensing information have tripled since the iPhone X was presented, with many manufacturers also planning to either offer facial recognition alongside a fingerprint sensor or give up on the latter completely.

Kuo says manufacturers are interested in embracing this solution not only for the security features, but also because “it is a key factor in the development of AR.”

“We therefore believe brand vendors are willing to spend more for related components,” the Apple analyst has been quoted as saying.
