OnePlus could be sued for patent infringement over the 5T's Face Unlock feature
One person that might not be so happy with OnePlus is George Brostoff, CEO and co-founder of SensibleVision. The latter is a company that works on facial recognition and biometric systems. The executive claims that at least one of his company's patents was infringed on by OnePlus' Face Unlock. One of the patents that he says was used without permission, allows a phone's screen to be used as an illuminator. Brostoff notes that he has not licensed any of his patents to OnePlus or its suppliers. Based on a video released by Forbes that shows Face Unlock in action, the Sensible Vision CEO says that OnePlus is "likely infringing at the very least on our illumination patent." Brostoff says that he has turned the matter over to his attorney.
By the way, you might want to keep the company name of SensibleVision in mind. Next year, it will launch its facial recognition system on certain Android phones.
