Did you try these new Snapchat lenses on your iPhone X?

Snapchat is hitching up True Depth on iPhone X regarding Ultra-realistic lenses

Snapchat is one of the first major apps to integrate TrueDepth facial data since iPhone X launched in November. They're basically AR masks that follow your face around like the app's many other Lenses, but due to the way TrueDepth works, they can look more realistic and just all around better.

Unlike traditional Lenses that rely on information from a phone's 2D camera to recognize dominant facial features, like a user's eyebrows and mouth, iPhone X Lenses tap into data produced by TrueDepth. 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.

According to The Verge, Snapchat's Lenses are created to reflect the surrounding light in a more realistic manner. Bloomberg insiders recently revealed that the new iPhone 11 will come with a new air gesture feature and a curved OLED screen. The depth gathers the data which allows these masks to be more precise and adhere a subject's face. You should be able to use the lenses when you're offered the chance to update Snapchat. You can make use of different masks which you can use within the lenses.

In last December, Snapchat released Lens Studio, an additional to showcase your creative side. The filters also react to the light around you and you see accurate light and shadow effects based on your ambient lighting conditions, something the standard lenses don't.

At presently, there will be only a few masks available to use within the Snapchat's carousel. Traditionally, AR overlays such as those Snapchat has made popular - like the doggy face or floating sunglasses - use basic facial feature tracking to figure out where they should appear. This isn't your average Snapchat filter, mind you. What developers like Snapchat get, meanwhile, is the facial mapping data alone, with more than fifty micro-movements of things like lips, eyelids, and the nose.
