Snapchat's iPhone X AR Lenses are finally here

Snapchat's iPhone X AR Lenses are finally here

That's because the face filters work using Apple's TrueDepth camera. In those 3 lenses, there can be seen a Mardi Gras-esque Mask, a Day of the Dead skull and a pretty gold-plated eye cover which looks really funky.

In last December, Snapchat released Lens Studio, an additional to showcase your creative side.

According to developer's agreement, third-party app makers can only access to visual facial mapping data, not the mathematical representation of it that is used to unlock the iPhone X through Face ID. You will see the TrueDepth-enabled Lenses within the Snapchat's carousel on the iPhone X. Right now there are only three iPhone X exclusive lenses and what makes these lenses unique is the fact that they will leverage the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system.

Does this make you want to buy an iPhone X? In partnership with Snap Inc., Apple demonstrated the power of new front-facing camera by utilizing AR Snapchat Lenses designed especially for the handset.

An Indian court has found Bollywood superstar Salman Khan guilty of poaching rare antelope back in 1998. Born 27 December 1965 in Indore, India, Salman Khan is an Indian actor, producer, singer and TV star.

Basically, the new lenses are AR Mask for the iPhone X and these lenses are compatible to work with the full face of the users. The first three lenses are the new Truedepth ones. You can make use of different masks which you can use within the lenses.

As soon as you open the app and focus the camera on your face, the lenses will automatically stick to your face with respect to the jawline area. They appear to adhere to the face more tightly than Snapchat's other lenses. Those 3D objects can also reflect and react to ambient lighting, producing shadows and highlights that follow the contours of your face and the surroundings.

By the passing of time, more manufacturers will acquire this technology to produce their future phones and such impressive features will also be made available for them.

There have been questions in the past about how much of the data from facial mapping app developers have access to, but Apple is stating that there won't be access to the Face ID information that can identify the user, just the advanced facial mapping that allows for new features like this.
