While we are going mad over when the Apple iPhone 6 could step into our mortal world, Apple is engaged in patenting innovations we never thought.
Having brought you news about the wrap-screen and the plenoptic shutter, we have now sniffed news about more exclusivity of the Apple phablet!
With the face recognition spec that is clearly inspired from the Samsung Galaxy Lineup, Apple has sealed the U.S. Patent No. 8,600,120.
However, further scoop on this comes with the news that this feature will enable users to unlock apps on the iPhone 6 as well as work without interference of the background. This is a swing up from Samsung’s face recognition spec, we bet.
While the plenoptic lens is old news, the fresh baked sniff here is that the camera will enable users to refocus on the images that already have been captured. We smell a con from the Lytro Light Field shutter.
While the iPhone 6 is touted as the next biggie flagship device from the giants, we wait to see how much these patents could aid in device sales. Will Apple finally snub Samsung off?
