Samsung Galaxy S8 Features: Facial Recognition Payment, 1000fps Videos And Matte Black Finish
The Samsung Galaxy S8 continues to impress with the many rumored and leaked features that continue to surface as the flagship device's launch looms over the horizon. The latest on the Galaxy S8 is that it will have the ability to complete transactions or make payments just by recognizing the user's face. Other rumors said the smartphone can shoot 1000 fps videos, and will sport a matte black finish.
According to a BGR report, the use of facial recognition technology to complete mobile payments is one feature that will not be found in the iPhone. Apple is actually rumored to have an advanced camera capable of facial and iris detection. It is unclear, however, if Apple will also utilize the tech for mobile payments. Samsung intends to make it ore secure to pay through Samsung Pay by integrating the face recognition technology along with fingerprint sensors and iris detectors. Furthermore, the new feature will be activated some months after the launch of the Galaxy S8.
Another one of the many rumors surrounding the Galaxy S8 is that it can shoot videos at 1000 frames per second (fps) which is estimated to be eight times faster than Apple's iPhone 7. This particular rumor comes all the way from Naver, a Korean online tech news publication. The source also claims that the Galaxy S8 will have two front cameras with one for iris scanning and the other for taking selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will reportedly come in matte Black finish. This is a far cry from previous Samsung devices which sported the glossy glass back. Forbes noted that the shiny finish was introduced by Apple with the iPhone 4 but it was Samsung that made the material popular. Despite being used in a number of devices, the glossy finish is not without its faults. In fact, many have voiced their disdain for the glass black material's tendency to accumulate fingerprint smudges even after a short time of use.
The news that the Galaxy S8 will sport Black matte finish come from Ming-Chi Kuo, the notable KGI Securities analyst and Apple insider. Kuo also predicted that the flagship smartphone from the Korean conglomerate will come in two variants. One will sport a 5.8-inch OLED display and a 3000mAh battery while the other one will come with a 6.2-inch OLED display and 3500mAh battery.
