  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Will Use Facial Recognition to Authenticate Mobile Payments

While the incoming update for the Galaxy S5 comes with build number G900PVPU3CPEI, the software for the Galaxy A7 (2015) happens to have firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1. It is expected to have a safe and improved battery.

This time, it was reported that Samsung made a decision to add cutting-edge security to stand out from rivals such as Apple Inc.'s iPhone and provided new Galaxy S8 with facial-recognition technology for mobile payments.

Using a blend of fingerprint, iris and facial recognition will make payments from mobile services such as Samsung Pay even more secure and Samsung are already believed to be working with leading banks although they have so far declined to comment.

The Galaxy S8 was initially speculated to be revealed during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last February, but Samsung opted to delay its unveiling.

With less than two weeks before the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are officially unveiled, leaked images and information about the smartphones have been piling up online. It is indicated that the home button will be removed from the front part of the handset.

For photography, the Galaxy Tab S3 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and f/1.9 aperture. We can all agree that rushing out a product will only bring in more pain hence we can accept it if the Galaxy X gets released next year. The paragraph also hints that the Bixby assistant will be able to control everything that we need the touch-interface for, via voice recognition. It will also feature several connectivity options, including WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE, USB Type-C, and Global Positioning System.

However, a South Korean news site called ETNews finally gave out the latest from Samsung.

First, the keyboard can be attached at different points to allow for at least three different angles, from nearly straight up to a roughly 45-degree angle to laying nearly flat to make the best use of the supported S Pen. Meanwhile, LG G6 uses a 3,200 mAh one.

The Galaxy S8 is rumored to feature a fast wireless charging technology.

The Chinese market has more phones with 6GB of RAM than global markets, with such handsets as the Xiaomi Mi Mix sporting larger RAM offerings.
