In addition to the Pacific Rim-themed teaser which showcased the front view of the Mi Mix 2, Xiaomi also released a second video teaser projecting the capabilities of the AI face unlock the device will feature. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is turning out to be an important feature of smartphones ranging from flagships to mid-range phones. In this case, the Mix 2s will come with Face Unlock powered by artificial intelligence. Wondering how that works? Then take a look at the video.
The video suggests the Mi Mix 2s’ face unlock would be smart enough to recognize the facial contours only, regardless of hairstyle or beard the user carries at any point in time. The Face Unlock will also not be affected if the subject puts on a hat, wig or eyeglasses. Also, ageing shouldn’t affect it.
That is not to say the Face Unlock will be the only security lock feature onboard the Mix 2s. Of course, it can still fail but with AI capabilities, the failure rate would likely be highly reduced. Nevertheless, the Mi Mix 2s is also expected to pack a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor alongside other traditional unlocking methods like use of pin code and patterns.
