    iPhones, my old Mate 20 Pro and other Devices have an Infrared Depth Scanner that will create a 3D map of your face, thus beeing able to recognize your face even in the dark, as it is infrared.

    The 8T, and most hole punch devices don't have that tech.
    Huawei for example also removed it for some of their phones, and Samsung did too.
    It's the Tradeoff you gotta make. Either infrared Scanners and a big Notch, or a Hole punch, but only Camera Face unlock.

    How we see an object is when the light reflects from the surface of that object. The assistive lighting works on the same principle: It brightens up the screens and if your face is close enough, the light from the screen will reflect from your face and the camera identifies you.

    I know how it is supposed to work, But I can tell you that it does not work as good as the infrared tech Apple and Huawei use and used. I had a Phone with that tech before my 8T and it unlocked every time regardless of the surrounding light.
    My 8T fails to unlock even with assistive light in super dark conditions.
    But I can live with it and I will just use the fingerprint scanner.
    It's a tradeoff you gotta make when Face Unlock only uses the front Camera.
