Samsung Pulling Oreo Update For S8 and S8 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Android Oreo Update Now Available For Malaysian Users

Aside from facial recognition, the phone's other biometric features could include a fingerprint sensor (which some believe may be baked into the screen instead of on the back) and an iris scanner. Although Samsung hasn't given any reason for doing this, the Samsung-centric website claims there's a new firmware in the works and will be released sooner than later. Nevertheless, the recent reports suggest that the development of the handset is right on track, and in fact, Google's next mobile OS version, the Android P, is already being prepared to match the foldable Samsung Galaxy X.

According to the report, the project that was supposed to bring the under-display fingerprint technology to the Galaxy Note 8 successor was recently stopped due to technical difficulties. Sources say that there's still some time until we see the proper implementation of on-screen fingerprint sensors on smartphones.

Drivers will only be able to begin accepting new trip requests after the app is deactivated for six straight hours. It's also likely that the app won't even stop those that work more than 12 hours.

While the device is yet to be confirmed, we've already heard several rumors about features that may or may not make it on to the Galaxy Note 9. Vivo uses Synaptics' Clear ID FS9500 solution in its phone. There has to wait until its submission for confirmation, before quickly to take advantage - hopefully - of his many qualities. The company still hasn't selected a particular supplier, but is said to be in the process of continuing research and development. The company was testing sensors from Qualcomm, Synaptics, Iges TEC, and Beyond Eyes. Samsung has focused on improving under the hood components and software department rather than pushing the design boundaries even further. The Galaxy S9 was also once rumored to introduce Samsung's in-display fingerprint sensor, but the device is only expected to move its rear-facing fingerprint sensor to be slightly more accessible to users. They have no durability issues, and accuracy is reportedly high as the sensor collects fingerprint information with ultrasound that can pass through thin metal. The Korean manufacturer is now making the final preparations for the revelation of both the Galaxy S9 and at an event on February 25, but already much of this information has seeped out. But "it will be possible" for Samsung to add an optical fingerprint reader to its flagship phones next year.
