Facial unlock functional?

I am going to build /e/ for xiaomi mi pad 4 plus, ‘clover’. This pad is equipped with facial unlock, and I’m wondering if it works in /e/… Anyone with an S9 can tell me? Or anyone who uses the facial unlock feature could tell me?

You mean ‘face’ unlock, or not ?

What else could it be ? :wink:

I only want to be sure. And i think it would be better to edit the posts headline so people with face unlock knowledge will visit the post. And hoping they will help, because i have no knowledge about that feature.

Facial recognition isn’t wrong at all :slight_smile:
Wikipedia redirects “face recognition” to “facial recognition”.
My translator shows facial before face.
And instinctively I would have said facial.

Lost in translation :joy::+1:

Yes, I meant ‘face’ unlock, you understood perfectly.

Have you got a phone with face unlock? Do you use it, and it works well?

I am not sure face-unlock would work for open source phones. The whole issue with Xiaomi blobs being blocked on TheMuppets was because the face - unlock feature was proprietary and a company had raised a legal objection to the code being available as open source. May run into similar issue here…unless there are open source apps that do this.

Ok, thank you so much. Good to know. I’ll try to find a workaround, anyone know of source code download online for this feature?
