Samsung Galaxy S9 will reportedly feature improved facial recognition scanner, though it might come loaded with a dedicated hardware like the Apple iPhone X. According to a report by Korea’s ET News, Samsung is planning to increase the speed of its iris scanner and face recognition sensor.
The report highlights that Samsung is developing a software to increase face recognition rate on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and make it safer than the Galaxy S8. The brand is aiming to reduce the delay in recognizing a face and scanning the iris of a user.
The report further highlights that Samsung might utilise the same 8-megapixel sensor on the front panel, which is found in Galaxy S8. It also mentions that the company might introduce some add-ons through software rather than opting for a new hardware on this front.
Earlier, the smartphone was found listed on the Geekbench, a benchmarking site, revealing some key specs. To start with, the Galaxy S9 will bear a model number of SM-G90F. The listing reveals that the smartphone got 2680 points in a single-core test, while in multi-core test it received 7787 points. The listing further reveals that the smartphone will come loaded with Android 8.0 Oreo.

It will be backed by a 4GB of RAM, which is kind of odd as most of the flagship devices these days are opting for a 6GB of RAM. Moving on, the smartphone will be powered by a 1.50GHz octa-core processor, which could be none other than Samsung Exynos 9810, which is reported to make its debut with the upcoming flagship devices. However, multiple reports suggest that for the US market the smartphone could bear a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
