Samsung Galaxy S8 is now secured as ever. Latest update with the smartphone is its facial recognition feature adding top most security.

In a report published in The Express Tribune, they have stated that Samsung will be adding the facial recognition feature to the Samsung Galaxy S8. This is for the purpose of making the phone more convenient, yet secured.

Samsung added the facial recognition for the Samsung Galaxy S8 to complement the iris scanner on their device. It is because due to the limits of iris scanning in accuracy and speed, the company has tested and decided to have the facial recognition instead.

More so, the facial recognition is so fast compared to the iris scanner and would only take less than 0.01 seconds to unlock the phone. Meanwhile, according to CNET, this facial recognition extra security option could come in addition to the fingerprint sensor.

Consequently, some leaks revealed that the fingerprint sensor may have moved at the back of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone. If this happens, the use of the facial recognition is much convenient and fast than the fingerprint.

Thus, this suggests that rather than doing an inconvenient way to open the Galaxy S8, it's a way faster to face the Samsung camera and let the face be recognized in just as short as 0.01 seconds. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be announced on March 29.

This sounds that Samsung is really preparing the market competition it could possibly face this year. It's because aside from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, Apple has it's iPhone 8 in the making as well as the Microsoft Surface Phone.

However, the Samsung Galaxy S8 facial recognition camera can be declared as an advantage of the smartphone against its competitors. Tech enthusiasts and fans might be getting difficulty now in selecting which among the three great phones in the making they would prefer.
