Samsung's S8 to Support Facial Recognition for Payments, 1K Fps Shooter


A new report suggests that Samsung Electronics's new Galaxy S8 will employ facial-recognition technology for mobile payments within months of release, adding weight to previous reports on the matter.



The Galaxy S8 to be unveiled later this month will blend fingerprint, iris and facial detection to verify users accessing mobile services including Samsung Pay, according to Bloomberg's sources. Samsung is already working with banks to help them embrace facial recognition systems in coming months, the rport added.

Samsung declined to comment.

While previous Galaxy phones have allowed users to unlock their phones with facial recognition, the S8 would be the first to use the technology to verify financial payment applications.

Iris and facial detection capabilities complement each other: phones can rely on iris detection when there's not enough ambient light to recognize facial features. But the smartphone unlocks faster and with more accuracy when it comes to recognizing faces.

Rival Apple has acquired facial recognition developers in past years, and won a patent last week for a method to detect faces using information in digital video feeds.

The S8 phone will also come with Samsung's own voice-based Siri-like digital assistant. However, that was developed largely in-house and the first version of the software won't borrow much from Viv Labs Inc.

The Galaxy S8 is also said to come with a full-screen front, minus a physical home button. Such bezel-less displays provide more viewing real estate, though Samsung will bury a virtual home button in the lower part of glass. It will also employ more power-efficient organic light-emitting diode technology. In terms of cameras, the S8 will not feature a dual set, but its camera will be capable of taking nearly 1000fps video footage, eight times faster than the iPhone 7, which takes 120 frames per second. Sony has already done it with the IMX400-powered Motion Eye camera on its new Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium smartphones, but it seems that Samsung won't be relying on a Sony sensor for the Galaxy S8's camera. The phone is also expected to have an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with auto-focus lens as well as a 3.7-megapixel front camera for iris recognition.
