A report by SamMobile, via the Korean Economic Daily, said that the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone will come with a facial recognition feature.

The use of this security feature may find favor with Galaxy S8 users and could well become the primary method, superseding fingerprint and iris scanning.

From the latest credible leaks and whispers, Galaxy S8 will have an impressive and nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge design that marks as the first dramatic shake-up design for Galaxy S for over two years. According to the person, the iris scanner was having trouble with "speed and accuracy", leading Samsung to add the facial-recognition feature.

Officials at Samsung Electronics said on March 8, "We chose to have Galaxy S8 mounted with the face recognition function since iris recognition is limited in terms of accuracy and speed of recognition". "With a face scanner, it will take less than 0.01 seconds to unlock the phone". The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are expected to be introduced on March 29th during an event that will be held in New York City.

Another Samsung official stated that the mobile business division is already testing Galaxy S8 prototypes.

Honestly, we have a lot of pages discussing the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus that we are very much excited to see the phones and do a hands-on demo.

Frequent leakster Roland Quandt predicts that Samsung will release the Galaxy S8 in black, silver and violet colors.

If the price tag of the Samsung Galaxy S8 does come in at 799 Euros then it would be the equivalent of $842 Dollars. A recent report by VentureBeat says the on sale date has been ushed back a week to April 28.
