Xperi Announces 3D Face Recognition and 3D Relighting Technologies Will Be Featured in the New LG G8ThinQ Smartphone

The LG G8ThinQ 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

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 Recognition 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.”
