Apple Watch

However, if The Investor's speculations will prove correct, the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Samsung device to fully make use of the technology.

This feature is part of Samsung's efforts to introduce a streamlined design for the upcoming handset to regain consumers' trust following the Note 7 debacle.

Samsung Galaxy S8 to adopt facial-recognition for mobile payments, and will blend fingerprint, iris and facial detection to verify users.

The Business Insider report added that having such a potential "killer feature" onboard will make mobile payments for Samsung Pay users much easier, what with the big steps facial recognition technology has taken from its nascent days. Apple had 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.

And now, the company has managed to fix the leaks to a complete Galaxy S8 theme for the older Samsung devices. According to reports, Samsung's new tablet will be more expensive than its rival, Apple's iPad Pro. The South Korean tech giant has now been hinted to leave behind its conventional physical home button and adopt a newly evolved virtual version of the same in Galaxy S8. Well of course this will surely be the first Samsung device which will have this this features.

A separate report from Naver suggests that the Galaxy S8's camera will be able to shoot video at 1000fps i.e. ultra slo-mo, something Sony was able to achieve with its IMX400 sensor for the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. Samsung appears to be building on its iris-scanning technology it debuted past year on the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 and expanding its use. At the heart of both of these handsets will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset (or Exynos 8895 based on where you buy the handset) teamed up with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. It will also employ more power-efficient organic light-emitting diode technology.

This facial recognition technology will work in tandem with the 3.7MP Iris camera sensor which will be placed right next to the S8's front facing camera.
