If it turns out better than apple's, everyone wins: apple will have to improve their technology, and other companies will try to do even better.
Competition makes progress :)

How sad to tell you this Apple fanboy, but Vivo's taking over so deal with it.
H-1, 27 Jun 2018That's like the laser ruler but more complex! Vivo just made the equivalent of echography... Kudos!As someone who works in a laboratory using TOF, yes, you are right in that its essentially firing a laser and detecting it afterwards in a field to generate an image. Or in proper terms "depth".
However, Vivo is (probably) wrong about the headline. It will be not be 10 times better, in fact, its worse than FaceID v1.0. Why? Because of miniaturisation you lose a significant degree of "straightness" and resolution. That means the image is not as accurate in practice compared to theory, and you have a drastic drop in detail.
Another BS again this this face recognitions. Soon companies will have all info they need about us to track and shovel their **** to us 24/7
The war of sensors point begins. Vivo got 300,000 sensor point to scan things. Cool. Maybe one day our phone can be as good as 3D printer.
Walter C. Dornez, 28 Jun 2018Man, Vivo is killing it this year! I'm impressed and curious to see what they will do in the futureThey will develop a phone that shown in captain america : civil war.. Iron man holding vivo branded holographic phone
Apple dont forget to copy and the send Vivo to courts for stealing your technology.

ProJames, 27 Jun 2018Innovation: size shrink and more powerful implementation. I'll say that's not a real innovatio... moreThis is innovation because Vivo uses a totally different method than current ones (infra red dot projection).. Vivo uses Time Of Flight technology equivalent to sonar but uses light wave instead of sound wave.. This innovation led to a simpler hardware and miniaturization
Vivo: " We're making this face unlock even more seamless than Apple's, and we will prove it that's its way better than the most competitors out there!"
Apple: " Hold my notch.... Let's sue them!"
-NEOPHYTE-, 27 Jun 2018They're not ripping off Chinese brands just yet, but it's only a matter of time....Yeah ina couple of years chinese will take over I hope they do it will put serious pressure on top brands
