I am very upset

  • optional

bwwwwaaaaaaaaa

i hope samsung doesn't remove the iris scan. it's more convenience and secure than finger print or face scan.

"Samsung was onto 3D facial recognition long before Apple released its revolutionary iPhone X." :')

Facial recognition is terrible. The X's was a waste of time and was incredibly easy to break, the tech on the Huawei P20 series, whilst better than the X, is still pretty poor.

When will phone companies recognise that nothing is going to be able to replace the nice, basic physical fingerprint scanner, which is more difficult to cheat your way past, offers a much faster response and is just generally more convenient for when you actually use your phone (you know, because you're actually holding the device and the vast majority of these devices have their fingerprint reader to most extents in a position where your digits will actually be contacting the phone).

Why not drop to unlock? The world has lots of problem because everybody has become so secretive. Keep your secret to yourself, not in your cellfone!

y do u need this tech which is completely useless in darkness...when u have the fingerprint scanner ?
y not instead put more r&d in some other aspects of the phone,like the batery capacity or ruggedness of the phone...!!!!!

Retina scanner ,DNA scanner ,just throw in everything to be fancy so you can justify price increase for your next flagship announcement

fingerprint scanner will just do fine ,they should focus more to bring better cameras or make it more thinner or dare I say more affordable

I wanna DNA unl0ck phone..h

Anonymous, 05 Jul 2018Why don't these companies try to make something more innovative ... moreNo, this is the stupidest way to unlock your phone. Ever. Human voice aren't that variative, so it's not that secure. Also if you meant it for a voice password, who wanted to leak their password by just listening to it?

Anonymous, 05 Jul 2018Why don't these companies try to make something more innovative ... moreVoice recognition does exist. Not very secure as we can record people voices. Its a failed idea.
