Thanks to the TrueDepth camera on the Apple iPhone X, and the 3D sensing that makes a 3D representation of a user’s face, Apple was able to create the Animoji feature. The name itself tells you what this feature does. The word is a combination of animation and Emoji, and so what you are seeing on the screen is an animated Emoji. But the magic is in how the Animoji move.
With the TrueDepth camera tracking your face, every movement and expression you make is mirrored by the Animoji character you select. There are about a dozen in the messaging app for you to choose from. Besides Face …
Honor has just announced its latest flagship, which it calls the Honor V10. But the company also laid out its plans for “future innovations”, which included a set of Face ID sensors up on the front with an IR camera and a VCSEL (Vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser). And yes, the feature would be used for secure phone lock / unlock.

camera), while the other three videos are all about Face ID.
As you may know, Face ID is the only biometric
authentication feature on the iPhone X, as the device lacks Touch ID (and a
home button). …
Apple has responded to the tempest in a teapot that resulted when the TrueDepth camera was covered in a review, and Animoji still worked, by saying that, yeah, it would somehow work, but the experience won’t be the full quality its developers strive for.
Apple is betting so hard on the added value of its inimitable TrueDepth camera kit that allows Face ID biometric unlocking and entertaining crowd-pleasers like Animojis, that it made several compromises with the look and app compatibility of the iPhone X (looking at you, notch-y top).
Apple’s new animated emoji give you a rare opportunity to experience what it would’ve been like doing face mo-cap for a turn of the century CGI film. Doing animoji overdubs and karaoke is all the rаge right now, but with severely limited recording times—just 10 seconds—coupled with the fact that the 3D characters are exclusive to iMessage, it isn’t exactly easy to go wild, unless you want to do some stitching and editing in post.
Apple’s decision to leak the Gold Master version of iOS 11 and then take it down brought forward all kinds of interesting leaks Saturday afternoon. We’ve already gone through several of them, and now we have some more including new Wallpapers coming to Apple’s latest mobile OS build. Also coming to iOS 11 are Animoji.
