If the latest rumors are to be confirmed, Samsung is going to be adopting one of the main features of the iPhone X, into the upcoming Galaxy S9.
The Galaxy S9 is expected to be unveiled during MWC 2018 in February and now it has been discovered that Samsung plans to introduce a feature called Intelligent Scan.
This feature has been uncovered within the latest Android Oreo beta and the accompanying description for Intelligent Scan is that it can:
Combine face and iris scanning to improve accuracy and security even in low or very bright light.”
It’s no secret that Apple’s Face ID has trumped Samsung Face Unlock in every way, so we are assuming that Intelligent Scan is going to be the improvements that bridge the gap between Face Unlock and Face ID.
The big issue with Face Unlock is that a still picture can expose it in most scenarios, so Intelligent Scan should remove any security issues that we have seen in the past, as a priority.
You can see an image above of how Intelligent Scan will work in low light conditions above. Let us know what you think about Samsung putting this feature into the Galaxy S9.
It was always going to happen right? Enjoy the leaked renders from EVLeaks below and tell us if you are going to be choosing the next Galaxy over the iPhone X in 2018.
