Samsung Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition Is Tricked By A Selfie

Samsung's Galaxy S8 Gets Jump On Apple iPhone 8

A Periscope user took a photo of himself with one smartphone, then showed the photo to a Galaxy S8.

Beyond offering a way for Samsung to move forward after its Note 7 debacle, the new Galaxy S8 smartphones could also raise the stakes for Apple's next iPhone, presumptuously being referred to in the press as the 'iPhone 8'. At the moment all we can say is, this website shared a mock-up photo based on the iPhone 8 prototype shared by an inside source.

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has been unwrapped, the spotlight is now on the South Korean tech giant's next big unveiling, which will be the Samsung Galaxy X 2017. There is no home button which makes the screen look larger than all the other previous models of iPhone.

A major new feature of the phone is the artificially intelligent voice assistant dubbed Bixby - effectively the company's answer to the iPhone's Siri.


Netmarble said buyers of the Galaxy S8 smartphones through end-May will be provided with a gift voucher worth 100,000 won (US$89.8).

- The new phones will come with an advanced 8MP F1.7 smart autofocus front camera and 12MP F1.7 dual pixel rear camera for the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing. Apple might also use the 2.5D OLED edge to edge display for the new Apple iPhone 8. The Street said. "The last 48 hours certainly give reasons to be optimistic that Samsung can do much to offset the slowdown in Apple demand many of these suppliers are seeing ahead of this summer's iPhone 8 ramp". Apple is also working on the facial recognition technology for the iPhone 8.

So we're a little disappointed to learn that Samsung may have a similar flaw in its implementation.
