Samsung lets you unlock S8 with your face

Samsung lets you unlock S8 with your face

But when it comes to the model numbers, you can easily tell which Sammy device you are dealing with, which is the case with the latest mystery Samsung Galaxy smartphone that has model number SM-G615F/DS. Samsung had the best fingerprint scanning solution we could have imagined; the one which Apple is pursuing right now for its iPhone 8.

On the day of the Galaxy S8 and S8 + presentation, a high-tech journalist managed to unlock the new Korean flagship with a single photo on another smartphone.

Of course, this is a good thing, because this new phone is wonderful. Both phones have a dual-curved display just like the S7 edge. Both chipsets have the new 10nm design from Samsung. The Galaxy S8+ is more efficient than its predecessor thanks to that new 10nm chip. It seems that the company still wants to push the boundaries of size. Another impressive thing is the resolution that goes up to 2.960 x 1.440.

The effort comes as pay-equity advocates are concerned about legislative and executive efforts to roll back equal pay enforcement. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., speaks at the International Association of Firefighters legislative conference in Washington.

The South Korean phone maker issued a statement explaining that the feature was created to be "a convenient action to open your phone, similar to the swipe-to-unlock action", but not as secure as its other methods. Smartphone makers are known to test multiple variants of their upcoming models. The screen occupies approximately 80 percent of the phone's front, at least this is what the company claims.

Recalling the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016), the device was launched in India for Rs 15,990 in May 2016. The device has a dazzling omission: a physical home button. Users now have the option of unlocking their smartphones by either using the biometric fingerprint reader which is located at the back of the phone, their retinas or by scanning the entire face. The latest one appears to be driven by a desire to ease iOS users into the world of Android, although it is conceivable there are Android users out there who just may prefer it this way. It may be a while before a manufacturer engineers a truly bezel-less design, with nearly no accompanying hindrance to the user, but what we've seen this year is progress, and progress is good.
