Samsung’s S9 and S9+ were launched in India just last week. But the rumours of its successors are already buzzing the rumour mills.
As per latest speculations, Samsung could launch its next S-series flagship with Face ID like tech found in Apple iPhones.
Samsung is reportedly working on a 3D sensing camera algorithm which could be used for the face unlocking feature. Samsung is reportedly working with Israeli camera expert Mantis Vision and Japanese module manufacturer Namuga for the same.
According to South Korean website, thebell, Samsung could adopt the face unlocking feature even if it won’t meet some standards considering the symbolism of S10’s launch – it will mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of Galaxy smartphones.
“Samsung Electronics is pushing for a 3D sensing camera on the Galaxy 10, but it is not at the stage of finalizing the specifications. If it is judged that the yield or compatibility is low, the introduction can be delayed. However, given that ‘symbolism’ is essential as next year marks the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Galaxy smartphone, it is highly likely that it will be introduced even if some requirements are not met,” the website reported.
Samsung Electronics is also pushing for the introduction of the “display fingerprint recognition” function into the Galaxy 10 as well, the website further claimed.
Ever since, Apple has introduced the Face ID feature in its iPhones, all other manufacturers are trying to incorporate the same. You can read our compare between Face unlocking and other unlocking features here.
