Samsung Galaxy S8 Could Come In A New Surprising Color

Samsung Galaxy S8 Could Come In A New Surprising Color

While the predecessors have significantly smaller displays, the form factor of the Galaxy S8 with a 5.8-inch display increases only a little, and the large difference in display size is due to thin nearly bezel-less nature of the upcoming smartphone.

A Samsung official apparently told the Korea Economic Daily that it's made a decision to go with facial recognition because of the limitations of iris scanning with regards to speed and accuracy. Therefore, in addition to having iris and fingerprint scanners in the Galaxy S8, Samsung is also considering the inclusion of the facial recognition feature.

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. He claims that the new technology takes less than 0.01 seconds to unlock a phone. Sammobile earlier reported on the Korean Economic Daily report.

The tech mammoth recently came into the limelight as it is rumored that Samsung is planning to integrate facial recognition feature to unlock smartphone in Galaxy S8. The handset is expected to go through a significant design overhaul, getting rid of the home button to make way for a larger 'Infinity Display'.


Last August Patently Apple posted a report titled "Samsung Patents for an Iris Scanner come to Life in the new Galaxy Note 7". On the back of the Galaxy S8 is a 12MP camera with an f/1.7 aperture and OIS, similar to the rear camera employed on the Galaxy Note 7.

This week it emerged the phone's actual release could be delayed until April 29, however, due to a shortage of components according to a report from Venture Beat's Evan Blass.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have reportedly been certified by the US FCC, and the Galaxy S8 is listed in three variants with model numbers - SM-G950U, SM-G950U1 and SM-G950W.
