Will the security be better?

TechTarget explains:

With the announcement of the premium Apple iPhone X, the company left behind what it called the "gold standard" of smartphone security in Touch ID to focus on facial recognition with Face ID.

Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Apple, said during the iPhone event in Cupertino, Calif., that the iPhone Face ID system was built on a new system called TrueDepth. This system combines a traditional camera, an infrared camera, a depth sensor and a dot projector -- which projects 30,000 infrared dots onto the user's face -- to create a "mathematical model of your face."
