Face Recognition Tech Still Insufficient for Security

We have to mention that when the issues with the Galaxy Note 7 have started, the development of the Galaxy S8 was nearly complete. Then you have your fingerprint sensor, which because of the new large screen design of the Galaxy S8 has been demoted to the back of the smartphone.

The model number of the smartphone in the image - SMG955F- is the same as that of the Galaxy S8+.

Microsoft announced on Thursday that it has started to take pre-orders for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus Microsoft Edition.

As awesome as the Galaxy S8 series sound, it appears that some folks aren't buying it - literally. The Galaxy S8 measures 148.9×68.1x8mm and weighs 155 grams. It will be interesting to see where on the phone Apple decides to put the button if true, as some Samsung fans have noted concerns over the company's decision to put the button right next to the camera.

According to a CNET report, the new phones will carry a price tag of $750 (for Galaxy S8) and $850 (for Galaxy S8 Plus).

The processor for Samsung Galaxy S7 is an Octa Core processor with 2.3 GHz Quad + 1.6 GHz Quad. Both smartphones come with fast charging and wireless charging support. With the recently unveiled installment in its flagship series, the Galaxy S8, so far, tech junkies seem to be impressed.

The Samsung S8 and the Samsung S8 Plus are available in black, blue and silver.

There are other ways to unlock the S8 by using the iris scanner and face recognition, but even Samsung admitted that the latter of the two options is not the safest.
