The Galaxy S9 "will borrow" some of the main features of the iPhone X


Do you remember that recent Samsung announcement in which a boy who had been an iPhone user since 2007 bought a Galaxy Note 8 tired of Apple always being behind the Korean company? Well, the protagonist of the announcement should reconsider its decision this year, because it seems that the next Galaxy S9 will copy some of the main novelties included in the iPhone X , specifically, Face ID and the Animojis .
Samsung has started the year presenting its latest processor for smartphones, the Exynos 9 Series 9810 , and has revealed some of the new features we can expect from the Galaxy S9, talking about things like the use of neural networks and deep learning for more facial detection sophisticated and better identification of objects in the images. Specifically, the Korean company talks about realistic face tracking filters, as well as greater security when it comes to unlocking a device with the face . Do you sound familiar?
Everything indicates that the Exynos 9 Series 9810 chip will play an important role in the Galaxy S9. Apparently, the chip will be integrated using Samsung's second-generation 10-nanometer technology, and it will be extremely energy efficient. It will include a separate secure processing unit to manage sensitive personal and biometric data, and will also offer "real-time defocused photography," video recording of up to 120 fps to 4K, and superior video and image stabilization.

To be fair, we must admit that Samsung introduced facial recognition technology before Apple, in its Galaxy S8 , but it can not be compared to Face ID or even remotely, since it was possible to unlock the phone with a simple photograph of the face of its user , with what can not be said to be a very useful security system.
In fact, an industry source, who remained anonymous, at the time told the Korea Herald that " phones can be unlocked with the face of a person who is sleeping, and even with a photograph" and adding that "for now, the Facial recognition technology only serves to have fun. It should not be considered an infallible security measure. "
Seen the seen, it seems that the Korean company has realized that facial recognition can be used for more than to have fun and has decided to put the batteries to catch up with Apple.
As for the Animojis, it seems that Samsung has also decided to copy this unexpected success of the iPhone X. At first these animated emojis may seem unnecessary nonsense, but the point is that users have liked it so much because they are so fun. , besides being a great demonstration of what the TrueDepth camera can achieve , analyzing the muscular movements and reflecting all our expressions.
The rumors indicate that Samsung could present the Galaxy S9 in February, and launch it in March. Then we will see if the Korean company has improved its facial recognition technology.
