But the new facial recognition feature has a fatal flaw that could potentially render the feature useless as a security measure: it can be fooled by a picture.

"For now, the facial recognition technology is only intended for fun". While it does not happen instantaneously, someone with not so noble intentions can still unlock the phone using a photo of yours, if they are really intent.

With Samsung already launching their flagship phone for the year in Galaxy S8, all eyes are shifted to Apple's counter release of their solid plans against their strongest competitor.

Last month it was reported that Samsung had made a decision to add facial recognition to the Galaxy S8 because of late doubts about the speed and reliability of the iris scanning feature also included in phone, so it's possible that the software algorithms still require some fine-tuning. However, users should take note that the stocks of the new smartphones are limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.

This is the reason why it won't let users use this security feature for Samsung Pay payments. With this premise, it is only logical that the company find ways to regain its popularity and the public's trust putting a very big pressure to the Samsung Galaxy S8. Launch dates for the rest of the world, particularly in India, are unknown.

The new devices will come in 5.8-inch for the S8 and 6.2-inch for the S8+ with smoother surfaces that include no buttons or harsh angles, in order to enable one-handed operating.

It should be noted that no matter what color variant you choose, the device's remarkably thin front bezels will always be jet black. In fact, the registration page for pre-ordering doesn't seem to exist yet.
