If we don't count the obsolete and totally unreliable Google Trusted Face, Nokia smartphones don't have any software that would enable the face unlock feature. Although HMD Global, the Finnish company behind the Nokia-branded smartphones, announced in the past that it will eventually bring such a feature to its products, we have yet to see it happen.

With its new trio of Android smartphones unveiled at Mobile World Congress early this week, HMD wants to make sure that customers are getting all the features they're expecting from a world-class brand like Nokia.

As such, HMD Global announced it has partnered with Sensory, a well-known company that dabbles in speech and vision technologies, to include the so-called TrulySecure facial recognition feature into three of the newest Nokia smartphones.

Once the new software is deployed, users of the Nokia 9 PureView, Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 will be able to unlock their phone via powerful facial recognition. According to Sensory, its TrulySecure technology is a FIDO certified biometric authentication technology that quickly, conveniently and securely recognizes user via face biometric recognition technologies.

The technology behind the face unlock feature can differentiate individuals at a 99.999% accuracy rate, Sensory claims. Also, it can identify users in less than a second. None of the new Nokia-branded smartphones are available on the market yet, but they are expected to hit shelves next month, so we're waiting for Sensory to provide Nokia fans with a release map for the update that will add face unlock to these phones.
