Samsung Galaxy S9 to feature full-fledged facial recognition feature

Samsung Galaxy S9 to feature an improved iris scanning capability with features likes faster iris scanning with foolproof engineering.

Upcoming premium flagship smartphone from the Samsung, AKA, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is all set to take on the Apple iPhone X, with its own facial recognition technology. However, instead of the whole facial recognition, the Korean brand will be improving it’s already existing iris scanning technology, making it more secure, faster, and, easy to operate than ever before.

According to the analyst, the company is working on a new software design to improve the overall efficiency of the technology, which should give an edge over the Face ID. Face ID has seen a lot of criticism, as the identical twins can easily unlock the smartphone without many trails. The Samsung should use these trump cards, before making upgrading their already existing technology. It looks like, the company might use the same iris scanning hardware which is found on the Samsung Galaxy S8, so, the new software algorithms should be able to add the improved layer of security to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.

The company might be planning to use the same 8 MP front-facing autofocus sensor with a new technology, which will be something similar to that of the TrueDepth Detection system, which projects 30,000 infrared dots to the users face to confirm the authorised access for the smartphone. Just like the Apple iPhone X, this technology might also offer features like Animoji, which is an interactive way of using the emojis.

According to rumours, the company might also in line to use a substrate like PCB motherboard which helps the brand to use a significantly larger battery pack with faster DRAM and storage models altogether. The major difference between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the main camera. For an instance, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is likely to use a dual rear-facing camera, which will be almost similar to that of the one found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, with one being a telephoto lens and a wide-angle shooter with optical image stabilisation on both the camera modules.

So, like most of the Samsung smartphones, the upcoming Galaxy S9 is also expected to offer all glass unibody design with wireless charging and 3.5 mm headphone jack. So, the company might also offer similar 18:9 aspect ratio screen, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass on the top with dual edges. Finally, the smartphone is expected to be priced anywhere near the $900 price range, which is a bit similar to that of the Apple iPhone X.
