Android P has received native support for the most current methods of user identification. This follows from the materials of the official Google blog. These include the iris scanning system, facial recognition and updated fingerprinting.
Introduction to the Biometrics API system will allow smartphone manufacturers not to write software for scanners, using the tools of Google itself. Presumably, this should spur the spread of smartphones that support face and iris scanning technology.
At the moment, the only smartphone equipped with a hardware-software face recognition system is the iPhone X. The rest of the solutions use software scanning algorithms that are unable to measure the depth of the frame and to perceive the face of the user in volume.
