according to Photographer: Seong Joon Cho/Bloomberg via Getty Images Seong Joon Cho— Bloomberg — Getty Images Samsung is seeking to stand out from its competitors by using facial recognition technology in its new Galaxy S8 smartphone.
While Samsung phones have used facial recognition for unlocking devices in the past, this move will extend the technology to support secure financial transactions.
Rival company Apple is also paying attention to facial recognition: Last week, the tech giant acquired a patent for a way to “detect faces using information in digital video feeds,” Bloomberg reports.
Samsung Electronics Co. signage is displayed at the company’s Seocho office building in Seoul, South Korea, on Friday, Feb. 17, 2017.
The company is also reportedly working with banks to “help them embrace” these recognition systems.
BlackBerry readies a more secure version of the Samsung Galaxy S7
“When we started on the Samsung solution, there was no BlackBerry Android, but with the BlackBerry Androids getting up to speed it’s a natural evolution.”
When it goes on sale, likely around July, an S7 running SecuSuite for Samsung Knox will cost around €1900, said BlackBerry Secusmart managing director Christoph Erdmann.
Users of SecuSuite for Samsung Knox will see the icons of applications managed by their employer tagged with a small padlock.
Secusmart, the BlackBerry subsidiary that secures the German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s smartphone, will roll out a version of its SecuSuite security software compatible with Samsung Electronics’ Knox platform later this year.
That means that organizations looking for smartphones offering government-grade security will be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy S7 or, soon, the S8 rather than the now-discontinued BlackBerry OS smartphones like the one Merkel uses.

That said, Samsung didn’t hamper the hopes of Samsung fans, with the announcement of the Galaxy tab S3 that will be released into the markets this month.
According to sources, The Galaxy Tab S3 will be a direct competitor to Apple’s iPad Pro that also is available at a similar cost.
Early buyers for the Galaxy Tab S3 will also receive the book cover keyboard, bundled with the order for free for a limited time.
The Galaxy Tab S3 also houses a 6000mAh battery that also supports fast charging.
Other details from Pocket-lint reveal the display specifications of the Galaxy Tab S3.
