Samsung Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition Can Be Fooled With A Photo

In a similar manner to Samsung, the physical Home button seems to be something relegated to the past meaning that the fingerprint scanner would also need to be moved to the rear of the device. Even though Samsung delayed Galaxy S8's launch, pictures of the smartphone started leaking on the internet. In addition, the Google Assistant has been replaced by Samsung's new personal assistant; Bixby. It remains to be seen how this will play out.

When it comes to buying accessories, cases, chargers, and more for smartphones we have a lot of options.

One feature that wasn't available for the first version was the ability to edit and share content in real time.

Other features of the smartphones include an 8MP front camera and a 12MP Dual Pixel one at the back, both with F1.7 Aperture and Sony's new IMX333 sensor.

So whilst it looks like the facial recognition can be used to unlock your device, it cannot be used for making payments or accessing a secure folder. As we covered thoroughly in our hands-on Galaxy S8 preview ahead of Samsung's announcement, these are without question the most stunning, best-designed, and most powerful smartphones the word has ever seen.

US carriers T-Mobile US Inc and Verizon Communications Inc announced retail pricing for the smaller S8 about $US700 ($F1453).

"As you all know, it has been a challenging year for Samsung".

However, Samsung developed a new battery technology that will significantly diminish battery degradation.

As a result, the S8 is actually 1.5mm narrower in width than the S7, and the S8 Plus just 0.5mm wider than the S7 Edge's.

The debacle cost the South Korean company billions of dollars in lost profit and hammered its global reputation and credibility, during a torrid period when it has also been embroiled in a corruption scandal. Samsung is hoping that the smartphone will help it regain the market share in lost late previous year.

According to rumors, Samsung actually had an even more different looking design planned for Galaxy S8 but it made a decision to not implement it. Expectations are high for the new phone, likely called the iPhone 8, partially because this year is the 10th anniversary of the device. Instead, they were dealing with one wicked migraine of a problem with the Galaxy Note 7.
