While the others use Near Field Communication (NFC) service to execute payments, LG is planning to deploy facial recognition technology to take a lead on rivals. The facial recognition technology will work as an extra layer of payment authentication in everyday wireless payments.

As per Gsmarena, the tech giant is reportedly partnering with facial recognition solutions firm Oez to deploy a 3D face-scanning technology on its recently launched flagship handset- LG G6. If this worked out, LG G6 will be the first handset to utilize face recognition for wireless payments.
