Samsung Might Use Palm Scanning In Its Upcoming Smartphones

Samsung has already said that the S8 will get Oreo within weeks from now and this is pretty quick when compared to previous update roll outs. The report clarified by saying that "This isn't a method for unlocking similar to iris or fingerprint scanning; instead, Samsung wants to use palm scanning to ensure that the user requesting for the password hint is the owner of the device".

This week, that preview has arrived, but you've had to go looking over at Samsung's semiconductor page, where the maker of the Galaxy smartphones has talked up a new generation in processor technology, as its 10 nanometre hardware hits version 2.0 with a few benefits. It's just a patent filing, and that won't necessarily translate to a finished product.

Recent Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus leaks suggested that both devices would ditch the headphone jack.

"The arrival of Apple's new flagship iPhones at the end of the third quarter of 2017 has delayed smartphone purchases into the fourth quarter of 2017", Gupta said. According to a report, Samsung is now working on two Galaxy S9 prototypes, one with front-facing in-display fingerprint sensor and other with rear fingerprint sensor.

In terms of rumoured specifications, the Galaxy S9 would feature a 5.8-inch Infinity display, along with 12MP and 16MP dual cameras to the front and rear. Don't expect drastic design changes with the Galaxy S9. Both smartphones will also be IP65/68 water and dust resistant.

There is no word yet on when the Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus will be made official, but reports have it that it will only be released to limited territories.

Likely to be called the Galaxy X, the front of the smartphone will sport traditional Samsung home button in between a back button on the right and a menu button on the left.
