How about a Facial Recognition Feature on the Galaxy S8?

11 March, 2017 Samsung


We are not sure but there might be a reason as to why Samsung has pushed the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone and to a place where it can hardly be reached without a conscious effort. Alongside the iris scanner which debuted and drowned with the Note 7, the S8 may also feature a facial unlocking mechanism. However, the report doesn't mention whether both the S8 and the S8+ will sport facial recognition. Nevertheless, we are pretty sure that both the smartphones will have it, provided that the rumor is true in the first place of course.


According to the report, an unnamed Samsung official mentioned that the new facial recognition software is fast enough to unlock the S8 in just 0.01 seconds. He added, "Due to some limits of iris scanning such as speed and accuracy, we have decided to add facial recognition to the Galaxy S8." This leads us to the question; did Samsung deliberately push the fingerprint scanner to such an inconvenient position, in an effort to promote the facial recognition feature?
