Samsung Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition Is Tricked By A Selfie

Samsung Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition Is Tricked By A Selfie

On March 29, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, finally confirming or debunking rumors about the handset.

KitGuru Says: I'm not sure why anyone would choose to buy a pre-loaded "Microsoft Edition" of the Galaxy S8, unless it was somehow cheaper than Samsung's regular version. The fingerprint scanner is shifted to the back of the device. You can also keep your private content and apps secure by hiding Secure Folder when the device is unlocked. Princeton Identity, which provides the Galaxy S8's iris scanner technology, told CNBC in an email that it's 100,000 times more resistant to false positives than other forms of biometric security, like facial recognition. Now, Microsoft hopes to capitalize on the success of the device, by introducing a Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition. You can use your iris data to quickly unlock your screen, verify your Samsung account, and sign into webpages and more.

In addition to all this, Samsung will, reportedly, include a 5.3-inch display on this smartphone, while its battery will be smaller as well. The devices also came in Siri's biggest competitor in the market today - Bixby. The Apple A11 that will power them will be as efficient as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895, but stronger than last year's A10 Fusion chip inside the iPhone 7 series.

O'Reilly is also one of the country's most popular nonfiction authors. The show itself will be removed from the lineup beginning Monday.

If you are wise enough, you may want to wait for the release of the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. You just need to have a mouse, keyboard and a monitor, and you are good to get started.

Infinity Display: The first thing you'll notice about the S8 is that it has no buttons on the front screen.

Apart from providing users with improved connectivity and performance, the Galaxy will also have a "Bluetooth Dual audio" feature.
