Samsung Galaxy S8 to have facial recognition software, according to new reports
When we first started to leak the Samsung Galaxy S8 and its bigger brother, we expected that the fingerprint sensor would be on the front, and since there would be minimal bezels on the overall design, we expected some kind of screen technology to account for this. However, we have now found out in new leaks that the fingerprint scanner would be moved to its traditional position on smartphone units – the back, while the iris canner would be on the front. In what is shaping up to be another sensor-packed unit like the Note 7, new rumours have it that there would also be a facial recognition software in there.
According to the report which made this public knowledge, Samsung has been said to be concerned about some of the limitations that an iris scanner might have in term of speed and functionality and to correct that, the facial recognition module comes into play.
The report which comes from South Korea – Samsung’s home country – has also stated that testing has begun for the Galaxy S8 series to check the compatibility of this new feature.
Remember, March 29 is still the day we get to see what is in the works.
