The new lenses include a Mardi-Gras mask, a Day of the Dead skull, and a gold-plated eye cover.
The lenses are compatible with iPhone X only as mentioned earlier.
Apple's TrueDepth technology for the X's selfie camera projects 30,000 infrared dots onto your face.
With the iPhone X still fresh in everybody's collective consciousness, it seems very unlikely for Apple to come forward with another tech marvel.
Snapchat Lenses are augmented reality filters that enhance your face or your surroundings. Snapchat has rolled out some iPhone X-exclusive Lenses, which are way more realistic than usual.
This lens puts slaps a bejeweled mask encrusted with diamonds on your face and a flower crown on your head. And, the mathematical representation of that data (used for unlocking the iPhone X through Face ID) is kept out of developers' reach.
The carnival mask looks the most impressive, easily fooling any friends you send it to that you've gone and had your face painted for some unknown reason. The 3D items can likewise reflect and respond to encompassing lighting, creating shadows and features that follow the shapes of your face and the environment.
At presently, there will be only a few masks available to use within the Snapchat's carousel.
During Apple's iPhone announcements, the company typically likes to bring other companies onstage where they will also be announcing partnerships or certain exclusive features.
As per the agreement, third-party application developers can just access to visual facial mapping information, not the numerical portrayal of it that is utilized to open the iPhone X through Face ID.
