NEC facial recognition technology implemented by Algerian smartphone maker Bomare

 

Algerian smartphone manufacturer and vendor Bomare will integrate facial recognition software from NEC in its “Stream System” Android devices to authorize access to applications for a variety of uses, including online payments, according to an announcement.

NEC’s NC7000-3A-FS infrastructure software embedded with the company’s NeoFace AI facial recognition engine provides authentication compliant with FIDO standards. This reduces the time and effort associated with logins, and prevents identity theft resulting from password leaks.

“NEC proudly invests resources into the development of its Social Solutions business. Going forward, the company will continue contributing to the creation of a safe and secure society through the provision of FIDO-compliant software to smartphone manufacturers, service providers and other customers in countries around the world,” said Tomoki Naka, Managing Director, NEC Telecommunication and Information Technology, Ltd.

Fingerprint sensors, particularly in-display sensors, continue to be integrated into many Android smartphones, but reports have also suggested that facial recognition could be coming to more Android devices.
