Samsung Galaxy S8 Featuring Facial Recognition Tech

Samsung Galaxy S8 Featuring Facial Recognition Tech

Although the source claimed it's just a prototype of the Samsung Galaxy X, but it's a step closer to reality for the foldable phone technology.

Users could also be treated to a better camera that is rumoured to be able to shoot video at 1,000 frames per second.

In order to keep the handsets relatively compact, Samsung has chose to ditch the home button, and the company's branding will only feature on the back panel.

Given that Samsung has openly mocked Apple's controversial decision to drop the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, it seems safe to assume that the S8 will offer the familiar audio connection. But what are the specifics that made the phone so much like how a motion picture camera works?

The latest Galaxy S8 price rumors reaffirm that the device may be quite expensive; however, it may not be as expensive as originally expected.

The numbers are pretty impressive, with a 1978 single-core score and a 6375 multi-core score.

Also may have battery size of 3,500mAh.

According to a separate report by BGR website, Galaxy S8 pre-orders in Canada will start shipping from April 28.

The leak comes from a Weibo post by user Kevin Wong, who is the research director of IHS for China.

The Galaxy S7, for example, used both Samsung's own ISOCELL S5K2L1 and Sony's IMX260 sensors interchangeably, with some users preferring the results of one type over the other. Samsung is also ditching its iconic home button in the upcoming smartphone.

In comparison to Bixby, there have been many more rumors and leaks concerning Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. Nowadays company is working with banks to help them embrace facial recognition systems which might launch after couple of months after device. Together, Iris and facial detection capabilities enable reaching the highest level of security - phones can rely on iris detection when there's not enough ambient light to recognize facial features.

A report earlier this week said that the Galaxy S8 will have iris/face-based Samsung Pay authentication, a feature that's not available on other devices, Apple's iPhone included.
