Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone will feature facial recognition technology for security purposes if a new report from The Investor is to be believed.
Previous rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S8 have anticipated the device to include an iris scanner but the new report claims the smartphone will feature both iris and facial forms of biometric recognition security.
The article quotes an unnamed Samsung spokesperson as saying:
‘Due to some limits of iris scanning such as speed and accuracy, we have decided to add facial recognition to the Galaxy S8.’
The Samsung Galaxy S8 launches on March 29.
