A new report today notes that "Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S8, scheduled to be released at the end of this month, is appointed with the face recognition technology as a way to complement the iris recognition feature".
According to said leaks, the phone will come without a home button, significantly reduced bezels, a fingerprint sensor on the back, and some sleek curved edges on the newly-enlarged screen. The official said that the system allows user authentication in under 0.01 seconds.
Samsung is reportedly testing the prototypes which are deploying the face scanning technology. "Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be out in Black, Silver and Violet (!) colors, retail listings show". Incorporating this option may be an easy alternative for Samsung as face detection by the Google OS does not need any particular hardware.
If you've been following all the Galaxy S8 rumors, the handset will likely offer iris scanning and a built-in fingerprint reader, but it seems that those features aren't enough. However, possible hurdles that Samsung may encounter could include making the security feature robust and smart enough so that it is not bluffed by a photograph instead of the real face. So the Iris scanner had no impact on the market. Samsung will be the next high profile smartphone maker to launch new flagship handsets and the company's devices will tower over LG's, as the Galaxy S8 will feature a 5.8-inch display and the Galaxy S8 Plus will boast a whopping 6.2-inch screen.
