All about Samsung Galaxy S9′s Advanced Facial Recognition

Samsung’s face recognition was quickly outsmarted by the high tech Face ID of the iPhone X this year, but we suspect the tech giant isn’t going to take this defeat lying down.

Hidden information in the Galaxy Note 8’s Oreo beta’s Android Package Kit was unearthed by SamCentral suggesting the development of ‘Intelligent Scan Biometrics’ will be seen this year.

This tech is rumored to simultaneously use the Facial Recognition features with the latest Iris scanner to provide better accuracy and more reliable results in low light situations.

The Exynos 9810 and  Snapdragon 845 chipsets set to make an appearance will also enable 3D face detection and secure biometric processing units, which are likely to elicit stricter security for Samsung Pay transactions.

We suspect this feature to be launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy S9 when it’s launched in February. This doesn’t rule out support on older phones.  It is likely that Samsung could roll out the feature to S8 and Note 8 users whenever their official Oreo upgrade arrives.
