February 25, 2019

The LG G8 ThinQ features an advanced face unlock function co-developed by Xperi and LG Electronics based on an industry-leading, front-facing time-of-flight sensor and FotoNation’s FaceSafe 3D face recognition solution

Update (May 16, 2019): The term “false-recognition rate” has been updated to “false-reject rate.” All other information throughout this release remains correct.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”) has announced that FotoNation’s FaceSafeTM 3D face recognition technology and its AI-based 3D relighting technology have been integrated in LG’s new flagship smartphone, the G8ThinQ, through a partnership with LG Electronics. FotoNation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi.

The LG G8ThinQ which will be unveiled at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, from February 25 to 28, is the first smartphone to feature FotoNation’s FaceSafe and 3D relighting technologies. LG Electronics will present these features as Face Unlock and Spotlight, respectively, at MWC 2019.

FaceSafe is FotoNation’s 3D face recognition solution for mobile devices. It combines a low False Acceptance Rate (FAR), low single-digit False Reject Rate (FRR) with attention detection and high-performance anti-spoofing technologies that protect against print, video and 3D mask attacks. FaceSafe solution offers enhanced security and a fast execution time that is less than 200 milliseconds (ms, 1/1000 seconds).

FotoNation’s 3D relighting technology pairs 3D sensing with AI-based face understanding to allow users to create professional grade lighting and feature enhancements with the press of the shutter button. This delivers superior portraits and selfies from smartphones. The LG G8ThinQ is the world’s first Android phone to feature a live preview 3D relighting mode that provides users with real-time feedback allowing them to change the light source position to deliver more flattering and professional looking selfies and portraits.

“We are thrilled to partner with LG to implement FotoNation’s FaceSafe and 3D relighting solutions in the G8ThinQ and bring these robust security and imaging solutions to market,” said Geir Skaaden, executive vice president, chief products and services officer at Xperi Corporation. “These solutions deliver superior security, protection and customization that address critical needs in mobile market.”

“We expect many users will be able to enjoy enhanced mobile security and personalized high-quality selfies using FotoNation’s technologies in G8ThinQ,” said Jea Yoo, president of Xperi Korea. “We will continue to develop technologies that raise the standards of mobile imaging and bio recognition.”

“We are pleased to showcase the G8ThinQ at MWC 2019 with its various and unique features,” said David Yoon, vice president of Mobile Product Planning Division, LG Electronics. “We are especially excited to partner with Xperi to implement FotoNation’s 3D face recognition and imaging technologies into the G8ThinQ.”
